'89 Wrangler YJ suspension lift

Hi.

I'm going to buy a 2.5'' Rough Country suspension lift kit and I'm wondering if it is necessary a SYE .
Who has assembled such a kit please help me with some advice.

Thanks to all.

Save your money for something better, like OME or BDS. With a 2.5in lift, a SYE is not necessary.

No Sye needed in 6 months they will sag back to what you have now...... so no you wont need nothing like that...

RC blows, go buy some OME or BDS springs and be done

but I don't know where to buy BDS suspension lift kit in EU.
maybe someone help with an information because if I order from USA the shipping cost is to expensive.
So I'll look for OME.
Thanks again

The other option is go to a suspension shop in Europe, I mean there has to be one around somewhere and they can make the springs for you and you can install them yourself, it'll save you money and it'll give you a good quality as long as the shop is good. I plan on going to my local suspension specailist for my lift, have them build it custom.

A transfercase drop is not needed, nothing is need for 2.5 inches of lift. But did you take my advice and at least check out a local suspension shop and see what they can do, it'll save you money for sure, the labor of having them do it will be less than the shipping and I bet they'll make something better of quality than Rough Country and cheaper on that end too.
