Bigger Shocks

Can I use shocks for a 2" or 3" lifted ZJ but keep the stock springs? What will it do to the ride quality and control? (the whole point of the is alot more flex until I buy some lift coils). And can I drive without my UCA's or should I not do that?

Yes, you can ride on longer shocks. You could bottom them out and damage them also. They aren't centered to have the full compression and extension if the springs aren't long enough.


Never drive without the UCAs attached. Very bad things will happen.

alrighty, thanks. So how do you recommend getting a good amount of flex (for a 2" System or BB) and still be able to run 31-32's? I have heard of a 2" BB and Rusty's 3" shocks on Jeeps Unlimited. It flexes alot.

Killer,

I would recommend a 3.5 inch lift for you. You have a lot of high quality stereo equipment in the jeep which you would want to keep the same high level of quality on the lift.

The ZJ is not a cheap vehicle to lift and have it work like you would want it to. So, since you have put so much into it so far, I would highly suggest keeping it at a level of quality that you are used to.
