Daystar 3" Lift

I brought this kit (KJ09126BK with shocks) for my 02 Sahara. Still waiting for the dealer warranty to run out before installing (another 2000 miles). In the mean time I've been researching reviews for this lift kit and I am not finding anything. Does anyone here know of someone that has this kit on their vehicle and how they like or dislike it?

I have the same lift minus the shocks (used JK shocks) and its pretty decent. I will eventually get longer springs. Daystar recommends drilling another front hole for swaybar. I didnt and used the provided bracket with no issues

I'm not all that familiar with Daystar's suspension lifts, only their polyurethane bushings, spacers, etc.. Does their 3" suspension lift kit have a 3" polyurethane spacer or a 3" taller spring?

The kit he listed is the spacers. It's a comfort lift

I wouldn't install that tall of a spacer on top of a coil spring. Overly tall spacers can encourage a coil spring to overcompress which can damage the spring. 2" of spacer height is as tall as is usually recommended.
