Energy suspension 1.75 lift

I picked up a 1.75" bb. I put all the skid plates off a uplander from the salvage yard. The springs have a 100,000 miles on them, so I may gain a inch or inch and a half. My new Rancho shocks should work, though I'll check the travel. My question is do I use only the pretty new spacers? Or use them in conjunction with the factory isolator? Of course there's no instructions.

You can do it either way. I'd leave the isolator in for more lift

I'm concerned my shocks are going to be short. I was really wanting to keep the lift at 2"

The isolator will help keep things quieter, I'd assume the 1.75" was assuming you were using the stock isolators.

You guys were right. I just left the isolator in. I kept it against the spring were it was, and stuck the 1.78 bushing on the front. It was quite a bit bigger then the rear. I spaced out measuring the rear, but it was a little smaller. These ZJs sat lower in the front. So Now it sits level. With the insulators and Energy suspension kit its an easy 2 " lift.
The track arm lined up nice, sway bar links were no problem. Shocks have tons of travel. Rides and drives perfect. Thanks 12
