legman68 I have the same BB on our 99 with 31's, looks great. But that's all subjective, check craigslist regularly for a set, I got mine for 500 for 5 wheels and tires. The spacer goes on top and you may not even need a compressor, I didn't. It took me and my 16 year old daughter 3.5 hrs, pretty simple.

16Inches Your jeep will look fine (right) with them. Over the spring for sure. Buy/rent coil spring compressers and lift one end at a time until the axels just start to hang. Or by someones extra springs that are just laying around.

Gumpy2030 FYI. Mine had 2" coils spacers with 32's when I bought it (now has 3.5 RE SF kit) and it was a little tight and actually rubbed a bit. I think you would need a body lift to go with the coil spacers to run 32's comfortably. My profile pic is actually the original set up I mentioned. Haven't had a chance to update it yet with the new lift.

InfernoGirl Awww shucks, you're gonna make me blush!

If you keep them and install them, put them under the factory bushing. Mine isn't done that way, but I'm pretty sure that's what is recommended. Not taking mine out to fix it, it works for me...

Martinez_Coins Thanks InfernoGirl! This forum wouldn’t be the same without you!

InfernoGirl The spacers go at the top of the springs, between the springs and the tub. It'll have some gap, but probably be ok. If not, Burton is trying to find some, sell 'em to him...

03 RUBI There have been numerous posts on WF about installing spacers. Just use the search function. IMO, yes it may look a little strange until you get the larger tires.

Coil Spacers

Ok, I know this is a newb question but I need to ask! A friend of mine gave me a set of 2" coil spacers. I have been looking online for basic instructions on how to install them and canít seem to find any. He has told me that I can simply place them under the springs but to me it seems that they should go above the springs. Which way should they be?

Also, any guidance on the best way to install them would be great!

Would it look too strange to run the 2" coil spacers with my 30" tires? I want to go with 32" tires but canít justify the price since my current tires have 95% tread left on them, I have a stock 2001 Sahara.

Thanks in advance for the help!
