Whats the differance

OK looking at the lifts at rustys
the 2 in bb coil spacers and bump stops $99
or
the 2 inch basic kit coils and shocks $310

Is there a differance between the 2 that makes it worth while to spend the extra $200

The first one you listed is a budget boost (coil spring spacer). It comes with spacers that sit on top of the factory coil springs which raises the Jeep up.

Coild spring spacer:


The second one is a replacement coil spring that is 2 inches longer. If you can swing the extra money I'd do the longer coil springs but a budget boost is a good starting point also.

the diffrence is the more expensive one replaces the coil springs and the bb just puts a spacer on top of your stock coils. IMO i would spend 99 bucks. because in 6 months you WILL want a bigger lift. Do you also know that in a snorkel you have to drill a big hole in your fender so i hope your running under alot of water to make it worth al that.

umm...well...you know what...




duke: if a 2" suspension lift is all you think you'll want, I'd go with a 2" coil kit. since yours is a 2001 your spring probably have some sag in 'em so its better to get new springs (what I did). I also recomend going with the bds 2" coil kit instead of rusty's b/c after you add in shipping, the rusty's kit is only a/b $20 cheaper than the bds kit and BDS has a LIFETIME, NO-QUESTIONS ASKED warrenty on all their stuff as long as you are the original owner, and rusty's doesnt. That was worth spending the extra $20 to me.


But if you think that you'll want to go higher in the near future, i'd get the BB spacers. I wish I did. you'll be able to fit 33's with the spacers and the BL (coming from your sig) and then when you go to lift it higher you wont be losing that much money if you decide to sell the spacers.


Im bad at explaining stuff btw

OK I guess I did not word this correctly I understand about one is spacers and one gives me new coils my question is what are the pros and cons spacers vs new coils
life span, integrity, durability, ride quality etc. will the spacers tear up something else damage other parts

if you put spacers on the coils should you buy new shocks if so then it is obviously worth the money to buy the kit that comes with shocks and if you do the coils and shocks should you buy the bump stops

one of the big differences in that price is that one comes with shocks and one doesn't. you need new shocks with the budget boost also.

a coil lift is superior. it was either "rusty the scoob" on another board or stu olson that actually took out there coil lift for a spacer lift and then realized how much better a coil lift was. he said there was less nosedive when braking and better handling. a BB will definitely work but the coil lift is the way to go IMO.

i have that 2" coil lift by rustys...its great.

edit- one other thing is that when having spacers in the rear the rear coils eventually start to dig into the spacer because of the rear coil being of a wider diameter. this is another thing i've heard someone say from experience. there rear coil was digging into the spacer so he eventually went with new coils.

That is exactly the info I was looking for I have the money for the coil lift but wanted to know about the other if you can save 200 then hey I am all for it

so what about the bump stops if I go with new coils are they something i should add

Bump stops, yes. They will prevent the tires from digging into the fenders.

definitely add them.

depending on the tire size you may not have to have them because your tire may not be big enough to cram in the fender but its always a good idea to keep the coil from over compressing. they are really cheap anyway...although i'm just running the stock ones now...but im gonna buy some rear extensions...they are only like $15. you don't need the front extensions unless you are rubbing up front (which will depend on tire size)
