Spacer lift question
 
I have a 2" BB already, I'm thinking of putting a 3/4" spacer in the front (to make up for the winch), Will I run into any problems having stock control arms or any thing else? I know really need to save up for a 4" lift, but funds are lacking right now. Any advice is great.

you are gonna stack spacers? i think you can get away without new CA's but your axles will be uncentered and you will most likely need a tcase drop...you may can get by without one if you have a MML.

it will be ok.

the height will be the same as before because of the winch weight.
i have 2" spacers on top of 2.5" OME springs to level out my TJ and everything works fine.

x2. You should just be returning to the hieght you were before the winch.

I just want to stack the fronts. Already have mml. front sags about 3/4" from the winch.

only 3/4"? you must have a very light winch.
my OME HD spings sagged 1.75-2" after i installed my winch.

misread original post...thought you were gonna run them all the way around...including in the rear...which would jack up driveline angles
