budget boost question

i have a 2.25 coil spacer lift and was just wondering, when you put it on are you suppose to leave the stock spacers in the front on also. i have had the lift for about a week and it looks like the front end is a bit lower than the back. i understand about the weight issue but is that why i should have left them on? any help appreciated...

by the way... i will never use a skyjacker product for the rest of my life!!!

Yeah, I would say that's why you are getting a bid of uneveness with everything else being consistent. Hell we used two sets of those upper spring pads on a buddy of mines TJ to level out the front from the rear when we put a new RK lift on it.

yeah, i am just wondering if it is going to put to much stress on the sway bar links though...

No, that thing is only about a 1/4" thick. Just enough to level out the front from the rear.

The big issue on MOST of their products is shitty welds and heim joints that wear out too quickly. Other than that, they're 'okay' - nothing to get excited about, like most lifts from manufacturers with a very broad range of vehicles (Rancho, Skyjacker, Tuff Country, etc.) Generally on the overpriced side because of it.

I've also seen their springs sag way faster than others.

skyjacker

don't get me wrong, i am not saying that they are terrible or anything, and the shocks might turn out to be great. but by the looks of them, i see them wearing pretty quickly. next time i will research a little better and find a better built and higher quality product... in the end i guess the saying is always correct, "you get what you pay for".
