Post What Coil Spring Spacer Lift Kit...?

Hey Fellow Jeepers, What product/manufacture, would you Guys, Gals recommend for a coil spring spacer kit? And why? Also, what should I consider when adding Coil Spring spacers +/- ? I have a 2000 Wrangler Sahara that I have had for 10 years. I’m looking for a little lift (1.75 or 2”) to allow a set of 31’s to roll freely. (I have been thinking about the Daystar Kit) This is my primary vehicle ride, I also have a 2002 Jeep Overland not as much fun to drive, as you know. My daily commute is less than 8 miles round trip. I don’t plan on doing any “REAL” wheeling.
Thanks for all your help!

Here is a few company's that make good kits..
Rubicon Express
Tera Flex

These all make a spacer lift close to 2" of lift..The other thing to keep in mind is the shocks you chose..They will make a difference in the way it rides..

Another idea is to look into a 2" spring lift with shocks..
BDS makes a nice kit

There is more I just cant think of them..The reason I am suggest a spring lift is your factory spring might have sagged some over the years..

Good luck on your choice and post pics before and after..

I put a Skyjacker lift and hydro shocks on my last jeep, no problems. On the new Jeep, I plan to put 2" coil springs with hydro shocks, you may consider looking into this type of lift also, and the price is within $50 of the budget boost.

A BB, Budget Boost, or coil spring spacer kit is a spacer kit. Just make sure it has bump stop extensions with the kit and you will be fine. I bought mine for my 2000 TJ to run 31s a little easier for just over $100 shipped. Remember that a spacer is a spacer, brand names really don't do you any good. Less known brands are just as good unless they do not come with the bump stops and hardware needed.

Rubicon express. Good shocks, comes with bumpstop extensions. But you should be fine to run 31's with no lift. Also, if you lift...even 2"...you have to align and possibly fix death wobble. Are you installing?
