Post Shackle lift question.

If I install a 1 inch shackle lift do I need to install coil spacers? I don't want more that an inch of lift.

It depends on your set up. Like the tire size. I put a 1" lift on my XJ today and without the front coil spacers, my 30's would rub in the front fender wells. Plus the back end sat up higher than I thought it would.
