mudslinger150 do you have a pic of your jeep?

chevyhed53 Thanks all. I think I'll look into the spacers
10-19-2009 07:12 PM
nicolas-eric he will ned additional 2" BS extensions in the rear.

ExDementia Yeah actually thats a good idea^^ Coil spacers are only like $30 and don't effect your ride at all

nicolas-eric You need shocks in the length of the stock shocks.

Or add some 2" Spacers and everything works fine.

Jp90Talon Maybe pick up some 2" coil spacers and you will have yourself a nice setup.

chevyhed53 Thanks very much. I probably just should have left well enough alone!

ExDementia Well first of all a body lift does not require longer shocks, the suspension is in no way modified with this lift.

This is just speculation but by using a shock that's too long it might effect the level at which the shock operates. But I really don't know much about shocks.


BTW welcome to the forum

Black Diamond shocks

I bought an '06 about a year ago with a 3" body lift and 33" tires. The shocks were stock. This weekend I installed a set of Black Diamond shocks bought from Quadratec, specified for 2-4" lift. All seems fine--I took a drive on the beach and the handling seems fine--but on sharp dips in the road the front seems to dive more than it should and the front shocks bottom. Per Quadratec instruction, I tightened the top nuts only enough to firmly seat the bushings but not "squash" them. I only have about 3/4" of thread showing on the spindle above the bushing and top plate, and Q says that is about right. Are these shocks simply less forgiving? Should I have ordered a longer shock? Any other thoughts? Thanks. sr
