cherokee 2" lift

hey guys im sure this is been done before, but here goes. If I do a 2" spacer lift, i know it isnt required to upgrade my shocks, however will i need to upgrade my steering stab. for any reason also what other problems may i run into? I am on a very tight budget.

2'' spacer in the front and Quadrated 1.5'' HD leaves in the rear ... couldn't be more impressed with it.

I tipped the jeep over a few minutes after that photo HAHA.



Front shocks are good for a 2'' spacer, I'm not running into any flex issues yet with the front shocks. Rear shocks seem to be doing okay.

Steering stabilizer you shouldn't need to upgrade unless you go with huge tires. And even then, if you start death wobbling, look into what is CAUSING the issue and not getting a bigger stabilizer.

The steering will be off center a bit because the drag link isn't long enough ... that's something easily fixable.

Thanks! Everyone said that a 215/85-16 tire would do horrible but it's unstoppable.

Didn't lose any driveability either. 2'' lift doesn't eat u joints.
