Of course. I wasn't replying specifically to you. But I think inferno girl was simply stating that what a lift does do is give room for tires. And that tires are the only way to raise the axles. But not limiting the options as so.

GoldenSahara00 I don't think the op stated the goal as big tires. I am wondering exactly what the end goal is.

How big a tire are you looking at?
this is true but with a good amount of time and not alot of money you can keep it low with big tires, like for instance 1" BL and sitting on 33s like my 97 TJ

It'll raise the bumpers and raise your belly up a bit. What they are saying is that you won't net any height at the axle, and you should only lift as high as you need toto.

devil J Just have wrangler streets on it. 225/75s. May eventually put somethin a little more aggressive on it. Still undecided. Plan on a hitch, rear shaft ujoints & front ujoints first

devil J May not have been 1. I'm not lookin to put too big of tires on it. Just lookin for a little more clearance..

GoldenSahara00 What 1 inch suspension lift did you find ? Haha. And why lift it so little ?
04-25-2012 05:06 PM
devil J Was lookin at the full kit cause I'll need to do the shocks soon anyway. It'll probably be a while before I do the lift. Still got a couple other plans for her first. And their not dead yet, just nearing the end of their life cycle.
On the stabilizer links, is it the length of them, I would assume?

TnDz TJ With a 2" BB... you can get away with your stock shocks. I ran this way for almost a year with no issues... even wheeled it pretty good with swaybar disconnects. Unless you need shocks....I would stick with what you have.
04-24-2012 05:08 PM
Dextreme Your stock front swarbar links will work, but some prefer to upgrade those too.
04-24-2012 05:08 PM
Neil F. For a budget boost, spacer and shocks. Most BB are around 2"

1 or 2" lift

Hey guys, got a 2k TJ, pretty stock. I'm looking at liftin it 1 or 2 inches.
The kits i'e been lookin at (on Qtech) are coils, shocks, stops & spacers. Wondering if there is more parts I'll need to do with it.
Inputs welcome. Or other threads on this.
Thanks a Ton!
