      I have a stock 1994 Explorer XLT. I am wanting to put a 2" sky Jacker lift kit on it. All the kit came with is front coils and rear leaf springs. Is this all you need? Do i need to buy longer shocks?? I would appreciate any insights cuase i do not know much about suspension lifts. thanks

      I think you mean add-a-leaf, correct? If that is what you are talking about, then yes that is all that you need. No, you don't need longer shocks, but I did b/c I got a 3-3.5" :D of lift instead of 2". My shocks that I had on it b4 changing them kept having a clunking type sound when I'd go offroad or even when I drove out of our driveway at a certain angle, b/c the shocks were fully extended. So I decided to get longer ones that wouldn't limit me nearly as much while offroad.
