Yet another BB question...

Looking at getting this kit.

http://www.quadratec.com/products/16117_109.htm

Is this a good deal, and will I need shocks? What difference will new shocks make?

If I do a 1" bl in the future with this setup will I encounter any issues?

Thanks in advance!

skippy made this reply on one of the other threads that I created. I wish I would have know about this sooner cause it seems like a great deal and a good kit.

Check out this one right here. It has the bpe shock extensions with it as well and is only $113
http://www.rocky-road.com/jeepbudget.html the 3" is $148. They also have a 4" lift on their site that isnt too much

Its only a good deal if you get free shipping - and no you won't encounter any issues with a 1" BL in the future.

I hope this is not a Highjack To the thread....But Shock extesions with a 2" are they worth it? Or just get some new shocks later I think longer shocks and better BPE's look like the best way to actually save some $. No way I can afford everything in one shot my wifey just got back to work and we are just getting by...... But I have the upgrade bug.

I don't think it does, due to the shock extensions you might want to ask skippy if he know further. or just look at the site for more info.

No you don't need springs thats what a bb does is lift your jeep without new springs.

I wouldnt do a 3" with pucks... (3"BB) You will over compress the springs every single time and you will need some big bump stops so the end results will be higher center of gravity with stock suspension travel and much worse ride (confort).
