Glad I saw this post!

I'm new to the Jeep world... just getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2" BB with 31x10.50s. Was looking at ordering a kit from my local 4x4 shop when I noted that their kits didn't include bumpstops... when I asked him about it, I was told that bumpstops weren't needed... he further suggested that putting them on would be kinda wussy.

Are their specific ones I should be looking for?

Dont the front b/s bolt on also so you could use the washer idea?
Im having the same prob but I really dont want to remove the springs to drill & tap spring perch.This cant be done with the spring in,correct?

Allstar Realtor Why different sizes for the front & rear if the same size lift is being used?

Yes. Follow the links that unlimited posted. Front go on the axle, the rear go on the frame side between the coil mount and jounce bumper.

Additionally, go look up something called coil bind.

Point being, you didn't know you had problems...which is why I asked, Would you even know if you had a problem?
i know that i didn't have any problems, i just replaced them with an 2.5" OME lift 2 days ago, and i still have mhy old shocks and coils with the spacers that are perfectly fine.

i will not argue about this issue, because it is still "not highly recommended" as mentioned before, that's why i changed to a proper lift.

my cousin has 2" in front(poli) and 1+" in back (metal puck on the bottom of the coil) since 5-6 years and also no problems. which is identical to my setup.

it's as in every lift thread here, some jeeps get away with it and others don't, every jeep is different.

The issue here is each one of us is giving his own personal experience on his jeep, it is not forced on on the OP, he just has to decide if he is willing to take a risk or play it on the safe side.

maybe i got lucky on this because when i got the jeep they spacers where already on them and i didn't know then about the risks, but when i did, i tested it, and found nothing wrong or hazardous with it.

don't worry tho, they're pretty cheap...$15 per axle, with new hardware.

the fact that you say you didn't have any problems with that setup strongly suggests you wouldn't have known if you did have a problem.

brendend Has 32s and won't disconnect the sway bar
03-08-2012 01:45 PM
Rolf It depends on your tyre size and if you will be.disconnecting the sway bar.

I have 2" spacer lift with 31"tyres. I did a trail with the front swaybar disconnected and in a serious axle twister I managed to do some damage to the front fender. This has been sorted with 2" bumpstop extensions.
