When I had Automotive Excess order my kit I was going to buy the traditional Clayton Radius Arm 4 link, but when Jeff got off the phone with Adam from @claytonoffroad and heard Clayton was engineering a 3 link front for the ZJ, a Clayton 3 link front on a ZJ has been done using modified XJ a crossmember etc etc etc. And modified, I believe Eric Miller at Miller Racing was one of the first ones to modify the XJ Clayton 3 link front to a ZJ and very successfully at that!  But this 3 link is the official Clayton 3 link front and 4 link rear kit as seen on the web!  As soon as Jeff hung up the phone he had already made up his mind, he wanted his shop to be the first order and install of the new COR ZJ 3 link front. Since it wasn’t being produced or for sale on Claytons website there were no guarantees that Jeff and Shane at @automotive_excess wouldn't run into an issue with fitment especially cause I'm at 4.5" and it's designed for 5" coil springs, it took about 3 seconds for me to agree.  And let me tell you Automotive Excess didn't disappoint, Shane and Jeff nailed it, it's a bad ass setup. These two ZJ's both have the 3 link front the red one is owned by Clayton and it's the full kit with 5" springs ...mine is the slate it still has the 4.5" BDS springs #funFacts #ZJ3link #clayton3link #Automotiveexcess #z88zog #5nineZjRegistryForNinerOwners #TheFirstOneEVER

"Once again I had exemplary service from Automotive Excess in Laconia.  Jeff and his crew are always helpful, friendly and professional. They always do a great job at a fair price and I know I can trust them. From basic service to the most complex repairs, this is where I bring my vehicles and highly recommend to all family & friends. Thank you Automotive Excess, this is one thing I never have to worry about!"

A friend suggested I check out Automotive Excess about two years ago, I am so glad I did!! 

I have had nothing but GREAT experiences with this shop.  Jeff and his crew are always professional, straight forward and for a single income household, pricing is very fair and affordable.  From a simple oil change to “it’s making ‘that’ sound”, I have confidence with this shop that it will be taken care of THE RIGHT WAY!  I never have to worry or second guess any of the services or repairs done at this shop.  I can tell Jeff and his crew take pride in their work and care about their customers.  I cannot thank them enough for all that they do!  You guys ROCK!

Jeff is an absolutely amazing mechanic with fair prices! Recommended to me by a friend and now I go there whenever I need something fixed. Have recommended and will continue to recommend to anyone who needs work done on any kind of vehicle.

Thorough, trustworthy, honest, and they have a deep passion for what they are doing. A rare combination in this day and age. I wouldn't take my trucks anywhere else.

I know the owner personally and he has outstanding character. He's well known in the Lakes Region as the expert with his unique niche. Business aside he's very easy to speak with and easy going.
