Lift Question about 93 ZJ

hey! i have a 93 zj with a 3.5in rough country suspension lift and it's currently sitting on 32x11.50x15 falken rocky mountain at tires.

my question is, i'm looking to give it a bit more lift, without spending the $1,200 on a larger lift. has anyone ever tried putting coil spring spacers on in addition to the lift?

something like this is what i was looking at...

yes you can if you have all the other components to support the taller lift you can add spacers on top of the spring

There is a reason why taller lifts are more expensive. Its more than just throwing on tall springs and calling it good. What are you currently running? 3.5" RC is a bit vague

Make sure you have

- All 8 adjustable control arms
- Shocks for 5.5" of lift
- Swaybar links front and rear
- Adjustable trackbars front and rear for correct height
- Front driveshaft converted to u-joint

Then you can go and put that $60 spacer set on.

Lol seems worth it right. Spend the money or don't do it. You'll spend more money fixing the crap you break after doing it wrong the first time, then buying the new lift anyways
