    Welcome to the forum @Muddy88yj .
    I'm not familiar with WJs. But anyt time you lift a vehicle. You throw numerous suspension components out of wack. Mainly the track bar and control arms. Basically...vehicle is not centered over axles after a lift. And to keep it riding stock like. You must make upgrades and or adjustments to both components. Hope this helps.

    I an just trying to fresh in up my current suspension and thought I could go up 3in and add blisteen shocks and get a good daily driver ride so what springs would i want. I have looked around the Internet and think the blisteen shocks are the best but I not sure about springs. I should also get a new track bar front drive shafts steel Braded longer brake lines a rear shim kit for the arms to keep a good axle ds angle rear longer track bar links. Any thing I am forgetting? Thanks.

    @Muddy88yj my slow build is with my JK which I'm constantly researching information about new products and builds. Comparatively the Wj doesn't have as huge an aftermarket support as the JK but there are some lift kit choices for example one online retailer (QT) has kits from budget boost>1.5" lifts>4" lifts. Briefly looking at those lift kits different manufacturers add additional parts needed based on their R+D for their specific lift kit. You could make a unique trail vehicle with the WJ and your build issues, setbacks and solutions will be a good read for myself and other WJ fans/owners because it's not the usual CJ/TJ/JK build.
    https://www.quadratec.com/vehicle/1999-2004-grand-cherokee-wj/lift-kits-and-suspension/lift-kits

    I think once you get deeper into your WJ build other members can provide guidance on your specific build struggles whether its alignment, clearance, wobbling, etc.

    I have never done any work on a wj so I don’t feel qualified to comment, and I think many others may feel the same. That being said, if you order lift kits they come complete as opposed to ordering individual components. When comparing 2 different kits with the same lift height I would say in most cases that the one with the most parts would be the better lift.

    I have heard not heard any bad about Iron Rock. The products I have ordered from them in the past has been good quality.
