I hear all the coil spacers are pretty much the same. just bought a 2.25 in. coil spacer lift off ebay for $90 shipped. the seller's store was Fat Bob's Garage. I think he was from missouri

Daystar makes their own BB lifts and they are made in the U.S.A.

I did mine last week... Teraflex 2" BB. I picked it up from Summit Racing for $130 out the door. (Summit is 10 miles from me)

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/TMI-1341200/



Installed it in under two hours same day. I love it... no different in driving characteristics than stock from what I can tell. I left the OEM rubber in as well to gain the full 2".

I did develop a small vibe in the driveline which I cured rather quickly with 1" spacers and (6) new 12mm x 1.75 thread bolts at 2.5" long. I HATE the look of the drop... but it's better than the vibes for sure....



Here is the original thread.

Thanks....If you are meaning to tilt everything a bit more... no. No need. my vibes are gone.

In the grand scheme of things...
I will eventually be at a 4" SA lift, tummy-tuck with 1" BL and 1" MML... the 1" drop will be gone then due to SYE and CV DS

haven't installed mine yet. I attempted to do it but I broke the rear shock bolts (switching out shocks too) and had to bring it to a shop. they fixed the bolt issue but did some paint damage. I have to get that settled first before I do the lift

Considering doing the exact same thing on my 2001 red TJ. When you add a budget boost to you have to replace the shocks with longer versions?

I didn't. I have some room before I top out, and didn't (don't) plan on tweakin the axles that much right now... mostly for looks for now.

I did not get longer shocks, and I put 4" longer springs up front and spacers in the back

I used 1.75 DAYSTAR spacers as a leveling kit for the front of my TJ....only need to lvl it out 1" but I was planning on putting a winch on it so it evened out..

Daystar has some really good stuff IMHO..

the spacers themselves are all basically the same.

just make sure to get a kit that includes bumpstop extensions. for a 2" BB, you'll need 2" rear, and 1" front with a 1" BL to fit 33s.

if you piece it together for cheap off the forums, you can use Performance Accessories body lift pucks as bumpstop extensions - they run around $2 each off their website. The "Mini-Block" fits with a BB well.

It really depends on your budget.... I recommend ACOS adjustable spacers. They give you the flexibility to adjust your height depending on future up grades like a winch & bumper that might make your suspension sag a bit to keep your Junk level. Plus it adds a little BLING to your Jeep! Check out ACOS from JKS......I love mine!
