Any issues with a 1" lift kit

Greetings everyone. I have put 30"s on my '93, 4-banger YJ. The tires make a bit of contact with the car when turning -not terribly annoying. However I saw in QUADRATECH a simple kit to lift the car 1". The kit consists of bushings and some other, ancillary items -no springs or other major replacements.
Will I be OK If I were to install those? Do I need to worry about any components getting out of alignment on account of the lift.

Thank you all guys.

a 1" body lift if fine.i would start using pb blaster on all the body bolts as soon as possible. keep soaking them for at least a month and then start doing the job. if your lucky they'll come out with out a problem if not prepare for some fun. i kept soaking mine for 2 months and when i went to do it they all came out without a problem. good luck.

The 1" BL kits I have looked at for the YJ involve adding a section (welded) to the transfer case shifter. No other issues.

the kit i got was a daystar. it didn't require any welding of any sort.just remove the old body mount,reused the old sleeve and install the new.
