Coil spacers on top of 4" Procomp lift?
 
I have a 99 TJ with a 4" Procomp lift and 33" Procomp M/T's. I like the lift but I'd like the front to be about an inch or two taller. Has anyone used a 1 or 2" coil spacer on top of a 4" lift, and if so, have you ran into any problems?

4jeepn runs 2" spacers on his RE 4.5". if its just a spacer for the front then there shouldn't be a big change in anything.

I run 3/4" Teraflex spacers on top of my 4" suspension lift. You shouldn't have any problems as long as you don't get too crazy with it. Just make sure your shocks have enough travel in the to handle it.

A friend of mine runs a 1" spacer on top of RE 4.5" lift springs on the front with no problems. He did it to level out the ride and compensate for the weight of the winch and front bumper. You can see them in the picture below:

Is the goal to make it look different or do you feel your suspension isn't working well enough?

I'm not a fan of going over 4 inches unless it is a long arm setup (personal preference). If you're just looking for some more height, why not do a body lift instead? You can avoid changing the geometry of your suspension and risking significant drive line issues.

Just a thought.

He's basically saying it sits too high in the rear and too low in the front. He's wanting to add spacers to "level" it out.

I thought it was bad to go over 4-5 inches of lift with short arms becuase of the stress it puts on the control arms and the the control arm mounts.

Let's just say it isn't "good" to go that high on short arms. It can be done though but your ride quality and performance of the lift will suffer.

Clearly my public school education did not teach me to read slowly. I completely miss that he was trying to level it out. Sorry

My public education keeps me reading slowly. :D :D :D

Yea, Im just looking to level it out. Right now the front looks to have settled about 1" and I've never cared for the "rake" look unless its a hot rod:)

If you want to try he Teraflex spacers you can buy the 3/4" and see it that helps - if you'd like a little more you can stack them with the factory coil spring isolator and that will give you 1 1/4".
