Im planning to put a pro omp 4" suspension liift with mx-6 shocks on my 2005 tj ut also would like to add a 2" to 3" body lift as well in order to run 35's. not sure what body lift to run....any ideas or pics would be greatly appreciated
I dont know what WW3 will be fought with, but WW4 will be fought with Sticks and Stones.....
Also, I would recommend doing the BL first if you're doing them at the same time as it will be easier to raise your tub without a lift installed. Otherwise you're going to need a lot of jacking height. I had access to a vehicle hoist which made it super easy to raise each side of my tub. Even though it's a 1 inch BL I still had to lift each side up 3-4" to get at all the mounts (back ones above the axle especially). On my 4" lift the bottom of my rockers sat dead even at 24". A floor jack maxing out at 20" with 4 stacked 2x4s wasn't up to the task the first go around. Not to mention kinda unsafe...
Honestly no idea. Those were put on by the PO. But if I had to guess they're probably just solid eyelet spacers like you find in shocks...just not split down one side. Lowe's carries spacers like these, but I don't know if that's what they actually are.
I'd like to pull them and install a SYE...maybe this coming spring.
A 4" suspension lift with a 1" body lift is perfect for 35" tires. There is no need for a 2" body lift and I wouldn't recommend installing one (or especially a 3" body lift). Body lifts taller than 1" are difficult to install correctly and they generally just cause problems.
Can I talk you out of the ProComp 4" lift if you really intend on wheeing it hard enough to require 35" tires? ProComp's basic control arms are not something I would install, they don't flex well enough and indeed, they flex so poorly that they are well known for stressing their mounts so much that the control arm mounting brackets are commonly torn off the axles at the welds. ProComp's and Tera's basic control arms both share that trait.
They are only ok to go with if it's strictly a street Jeep or if the trails are gentle beginner type trails.
