3.5" to 5.5" lift questions?

I have the RE 3.5" superflex lift now and want to add 1 3/4" coil spring spacers. Do I need to get adjustable upper control arms to add these spacers or not? If I do what length do I set the upper arms too? Do I need to add anything else? I also have an adjustable front trackbar and a 1" transfer case drop kit! Any help from anyone who has done this allready would be appreciated

Okay, just a couple of things.

First, extended bumpstops.
Second, extended front brake lines.
Third, Check the length on your shocks for proper extension.
Fourth, Adjustable upper control arms isn't manadatory yet, they will help.


IF you have the CV front driveshaft, check the links above or on www.nagca.com for Tom Woods and get a stronger one.

I did alot of trimming of the front bumper and at full flex the 32's rub the wheelwell pretty bad. I do a good bit of street driving, teh MT"S are nice and loud. The ride is nice with the RE kit. I haven't had any real problems with it. I want to add the spacers to get the tires out of the wheelwells a little more.

i'm proably lookin @ the r.e. 4.5" kit to fit 33" goodyear mtr's strictly street but if you actually take yours out and your rubbin and whacked the hell out of your bumper check the r.e. site so you can upgrade just the parts you need for better clearence
