A couple of question's about lift
 
Hi, I have a 95YJ that the PO claimed had a 2" shackle & 4" RC spring lift. Well I broke the front springs out wheeling and need to replace. The shackle turned out to be 1" not 2" so I can't be sure if correct on 4" spring lift. I was thinking of going with a 5" BDS springs & maybe boomerang shackle's. This is SUA I 'am running 35x12.5 BFG's . It measures 24 1/4" from ground to bottom of rocker. I have a sye and double cardin shaft already. Do you think this is a good idea? my DD and I wheel it. Advice,thoughts? thanks

If it's working, run it. I personally don't like High arch springs, and long shackles. find the taller the arch the quicker they go flat. and long shackles seem to cause a lot of sway. I prefer SOA, do like boomerange shackles on the rear.
