Quick BB question

Is there anything that needs to be done after putting on a BB? I figure bigger tires would mean the speedometer needs to be set right. things like that... but that's with the tires.

Just wanting to know if lifting it up 2" means some minor adjustments anywhere

With 2" you may want to consider getting new shocks, as well. The stock ones (I am assuming you have stock) will be stretched out further and will wear out faster. Plus, depending on your miles they may need replacing anyway. Around 100,000 miles is a good time to get new ones.

Alignment is #1- your wheels might end up with positive camber and/or toe-in or toe-out.

While doing the BB you should put new shocks, degrease all of the suspension components, make sure everything is nice and tight.

After my BB, I degreased the suspension/wheelwells and I took a can of flat-black spray paint to it and it looks like all new stuff down there!!!

I also re-greased the fittings on the rod ends... basically anything that had grease from the factory.
