Just get 3.5" lift coils for the ZJ?

There's a thread around here using f150 coils in the front for a 3.5" lift with the f > r. He basically rode with it for a while, got tired of it riding like *** and got a real lift. Do it right the first time and you'll save money.

Its just for a temp boost in hight untill I can get my 6.5" long arm and 35s. I just got 31s not long ago(couldnt resist for the price. 450 for all 4 mounted and balanced) so I basically just want the little bit extra clearance till they are ready to be replaced. I still get a little rub with 2" spacer lift. But I also run no sway bars so a stiffer ride doesnt bother me

Trim? Run wheel spacers? I really wouldn't run more than 2.5" on stock CA's.

And put your swaybars back if you're driving on streets! Discos or gtfo.

Im very against trimming lol I have 0 rust or rot on my zj so no trimming yet and working on wheel spacers. But I have connections at the local junkyard so I get anything I need dirt cheap. So the f> r seemed like a good option to hold me over for about a yr and allow me to save to finish the build in 1 shot

Have you done anything other than the spacer and different shocks? A f>r is going to need trackbars and really needs CA's, it's not "cheap" it's just "cheaper".
