squarelightsahara Thanks for the input. I still haven't ordered anything yet. I am leaning toward the bushing lift. I know it will take some work, but I think it might be best for my project. I am spending the day under the jeep. One project after another.

jeeepguy Be aware that a 1" BL kit will require you to reposition the fan shroud down 1" as well. And you might have to do some clearancing of the shifters thru the trans tunnel.

whiteyj One related thing that I ran into recently. When replacing out the body bushings discovered that the factory ones incorporate a metal sleeve with a mushroom top on it. The top rides against the tub and the sleeve goes through both halves of the bushing.

The new bushings don't come with this sleeve. Several of mine were corroded so I order a new set from the dealer. Set of six was $65! Hopefully ones with a 1" lift would as the stock sleeve would be too short.

daddyjeep It makes sense to me to get the 1" lift bushings. I may be going the same route myself. I am sure someone has some experience with this and will chime in soon.

Tub Bushings and BL

I am doing a lot of deconstruction to make improvements. I noticed that my tub/frame bushings are shot. One corner was sitting on the frame. I was looking at replacements and saw that there are replacement bushings that also give a 1 inch BL.

When I replace the bushings I planned to put a one inch BL in anyhow. Is there any benefit to the bushing BL versus the hockey puck? Has anyone put the bushings with the BL on their rig?

I was going to order last night, but I though I would ask the experts for advice.
