Post I want to add a 1-3/4" coil spacers?

I have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler X, a few years ago I added a 2" suspension lift to it to fit some 32x11.5-15. I just changed the tires to 33x12.5-15 and I don't have any problems with the tires hitting or scrapping but I just wanted to add a 1-3/4" coil spacers to lifted up a little more. Does any one know if I could add it with out any problems like having to change anything else?

Thank you,
David Yanez Jr.

no, you can't add 1.75" coil spacers on top of the 2" lift springs. your springs won't have enough room to compress. you would need to extend the bumpstops 2" front and rear, on top of what you already have, to compensate. This will leave you with very little uptravel.

if you want more height, buy new springs, new shocks and everything else that goes along with 4" of lift....SYE, CV shaft, control arms, brake lines, sway bar links, etc.

You may want to consider a 1.25" body lift instead. Simple install and you'll get roughly the same height your aiming for.

when I bought mine it had 2" OME springs and 1 3/4" spacers on them, N66l and N67l Nitrochargers . They had been there for the better part of 200,000 miles so I'd say that shows you can do it . Nothing new, as a matter of fact I am not to far from that now with the addition of the winch .I added a 3/8" spacer to the existing 1" spacer and isolator although I have RC 2.5 springs . PO loved it with 10.50x33s and I am pleased with what I installed. I guess you could add the amount of bump stops some tell you to use with taller springs or you can coil bind like some race cars use. It may be easier being the bump stops on some don't seem to line up when springs are compressed where the coils always will . I know its not what people echo on the forums but it works.
