1 inch body lift - Why engine mount lift also?

I was looking at different 1 inch body lifts and a few of them recommend lifting the engine mount by 1 inch also.

Why is this recommended? What happens if you don't do it?

Thanks,

Also, will 31x12.5 tires still rub with a 1 inch body lift on stock 15x8 rims?

Two reasons...to sell thier product and you wont need to adjust the radiator fan shroud.

Is it required to run a 1''mml with a body lift ?....Not at all but you will have to drill some new holes to reposition your radiator fan shroud.

The mml can help with drive lines angle also. Not very much but some.

31x12.5 ????? Do you mean 31x10.5 or 31x11?

if it is indeed a 31x12.5 tire....YES it will absoulty rub with the stock wheels.
Plus such a wide tire and little side wall with the 31x12.5 may be a little wide for a 15x8.

You were right. I meant 31x10.5.

Will these rub on 15x8 stock rims with a 1 inch body lift?

Shouldn't have a problem - I ran that setup without the BL and had no problems. My BL only had the relocation of the radiator shroud but no engine mounts... no issues there either.
