Jeepn13 I plan on putting new tires on soon and getting a 4 wheel alignment. Should I do the lift then put the tires and alignment or will the lift not affect the alignment?

Also the lift had no instructions with it, do the spacers go under the spring or do they go on top of the spring? Still the same effect just not sure if one way is recommended..

Thanks

yeah but you have non stock rims the backspaceing is different from the stock
those rims have about 4in backspaceing right?

njkeagle I had 2" spacers with 32's and did not rub. Also you said it has spacers.. That is not a suspension lift. Suspension lift you change the springs, etc... It will still give you the same lift though. With mine I did change the shocks from stock.

Similar Question

I now have a stock 02 Wrangler Saraha running 30" tires and had reciently got a full 03' or 04' stock Wrangler Rubicon suspension for cheap. I want to install it but have also found a set of 2" pucks cheap and want to know if I will have any drive line issues instaling both of them together or should i install one or the other. I am keeping this mild as it is my DD and occasional weekend wheeler but just want some feed back. Thanks in advance

Just a guess, but if the shock is the limiting factor on suspension travel, and this limit is easily obtained by hitting small bumps (on rebound due to lift). The shock is not being driven in the area of motion that it was intended, the piston is higher in the shock body.

basically the piston of the shock is topping out (like bottoming out, except on the top ) coming in contact with the body of the shock. Over time this activity will rip the shock into 2 or more pieces. I saw it when I was a suspension mechanic.

Another thing, many shocks are stiffer at both ends than they are in the center (where they normally ride on a non-lifted car). so when they are forced to ride in a higher (lifted) area of the shock tube, the shock is less refined feeling.

mikes05unlimited If you need new shocks you'll know as soon as you drive it. I just put spacers in and if I hit any kind of bump it feels like my springs are made of cement. If you have the cash I would upgrade the shocks while you are doing the lift. You have to disconnect the shocks anyway might as well replace them IF YOU CAN. Just my 2 cents though.

jgano23 nope. with that lift you won't have body roll, it will drive like stock. body roll is mostly felt when you have a large body lift on the jeep.

Jeepn13 Not planning on wheeling much until I put a bigger lift on, just curious about the ride and if there would be extra body roll.

4Jeepn stock shocks will work. will be a bit limited on flex, but are ok to use.

2" Suspension Lift

I recently bought a TJ and the guy before me had a 2" suspension lift that he never installed. Basically they are just spacers between the springs and the top plate.

Question is: Is it recommended that I upgrade the stock shocks or will the stock ones work? It's not much of a lift, but it will give it a taller stance for now.

Thanks
