Spacers on top of OME lift springs?

hallo,

i have a 2.5" HD OME lift. on the front there are 2 aditional trimpackers to level the TJ out. in real it´s about 3.25" of lift. it sagged in the first 2 days after i installed the lift but now it´s at the same level for over 5 weeks.

now i think about putting some 2" spacers in the front (instead of the trimpackers) and some 1" spacers in the rear when i install my 35s.
will that be a problem?

with that amount of lift i think i´ll have enough space for the 35s without rubbing.

thanks in advance for your answers.

Yea, we've added 2" BB's to an OME kit, usually when the jeep has a winch and winch bumper up front. Mostly to get the 1" back from the extra 150lbs but only in the front so far. Some have used them in the rear too when they needed a inch or two back from a rear bumper.tirecarrier.35" tire combo

Despite the kits I always looked at an adjustable trackbar as part of ANY lift kit, even with a 2"BB spacer kit, at least thats my take on it.

i´ll install JKS CAs and track bars next year when i´ve enough money for that.

with additional 2" spacers in the front and 1" spacers in the rear it would have the same height than the 3.5" RE lift kit. and that also comes with only a trackbar bracket and works with stock CAs.

do you really think i could get problems with additional spacers?

Maybe not but I also don't like drilling extra holes to put in a trackbar relocation bracket either but thats just me. Worked on a long arm kit last month and man what a job, had to cut off and fab new disconnect metal to clear for the jks quicker's. Also had to totally remove the TB bracket and build a new one, glad we had a good person to do the welding on it.
