Any additional mods required?

With a budget 2" spacer lift with shocks, are there any additional modifications recommended or required (i.e. front or rear track bar, transfer case drop, etc)?

Thanks,
Joe

I done a 2" budget boost cool spring spacer
I used my stock shocks

No vibes,nothing else needed
$80 2" lift
Your stock shocks will work with a 2" lift

Have about 30,000 miles on mine,stock shocks

My rear axle was off center before the lift
After its closer to center

You should really get new shocks. The stock ones are crap to begin with and you lose downtravel lifting with them.

I had a budget boost and have since swapped it out for Bds 2" coils. The ride is much better and to be honest I wish I'd of just got springs in the first place.

Mine is also a 2" coil spacer. The spacers came with shocks, so I think I am good there.
I am going to replace my control arm bushings and front track bar bushing with poly due to a little shimmy at speed and a slight clunky feeling in the steering wheel especially on left hand turns. I already replaced tie rod ends (all of them), new upper and lower ball joints (that was an experience in my driveway), axle u-joints, and front wheel bearing hub assembly. She has about 67k miles on it, but by the time I'm done will be new.
