I think what he mean is that I will be able to flex as much as I can now.

you won't lose any travel by lifting the vehicle. The shocks still work in the same parameters as before. There is just less droop before you fully extend the shock.



lost: If you are running a BDS shock you will be fine with the 1" spacers.

mrbigjeep well i guess you could try the shocks you have now and see if your still getting enough travel...if not then i would get new shocks...with the shocks limiting your travel you'll lose a good bit even when discoed because with the shock to short it can't travel anymore

lost yes they are bds shocks.

I've never disco'ed offroad(no torx set) so I havent really seen whats the most it can droop.( im getting disco's soon btw)

MR.CLIFFORD Are they BDS shocks?

How far can you droop your front suspension before lifting a tire?

Coil spacer/shock question

I'm going to get a couple 1" coil spacers for the front of my jeep to level it out and I was wondering if I need some of those shock extenders or something since my shocks are for only a 2" lift, or do you guys think that for just 1" my shocks will be fine?

Thanks in advance,
-Matt
