I aleady have a body lift. I was just inquiring on the budget boost. I was not sure if there were other things needed to be done besides the shocks. Basically all its doing is forcing all four wheels down from the suspension, thus raising the jeep. Am I correct? If so then the drive-line and everything else should be unchanged/ not effected. Except a little more top heavy.
Driveline is def affected cause you are still doing a 2" suspension lift, instead of using longer coils you're putting urathane blocks ontop of your coils. All the same rules for suspension lifts apply.
Jeep: Pioneered by a war, popularized by AMC, revived by Chrysler, jacked by some Germans, and copied by all.
if you plan to offroad your Jeep, or prefer a more comfortable ride on the road, you will need longer shocks. even at only 2" of lift, your stock shocks will be a limiting factor in your articualtion. if you push it too hard/far, you will damage those stock shocks. on the road, because your stock shocks will be extended to their max all the time, they will not be able to work properly in absorbing bumps...up or down; resulting in a very rough ride.
the bottom line is longer shocks are not necessary to make a BB work, but they will limit your flex, you will have a rougher ride, and you do risk damaging the shocks while offroad.
if this is a matter of, i have the money for the spacers now, but i can't get the shocks til later....you can do the spacers now and add the shocks when you are able.
If I do decide to do the budget boost, I will get new shocks. It's just a matter of what I really want now. I'm on the fence. I know later on down the road I will deff. do it, when my tires wear out and I can get the 30-31's. I don't want to go bigger then the 32's. I'm not really doing alot of 4-wheelin. Mostly looks=mall crawler. To me a jeep ain't a jeep unless it's lifted a bit with bigger then normal tires. Just my thoughts. I realize a bone stock jeep can do things other 4-wheelers claim to do, with ease. I just like the looks of a lifted jeep.
