RE 3.5' Lift With BB Spacers?

I was wondering if the RE 3.5' super flex, with BB coil spacers would be a good lift kit for my ZJ, and how much total lift it would me? if i get this set-up will i have to modify anything on my car(Drive shafts, Ect.), and if it would clear 32' BFG's?

Sorry for all the Q's...!!!

Thanks,

Yes, that lift combo will work. I would recommend the RE 4.5 and then spacers if you must go higher.

Click on the link in my sig. If you need more info, PM me.

The kit may need longer shocks, adjustable front track bar, rear trac bar bracket, longer front brake lines and extended bumpstops.

Also, do you have the cv booted front driveshaft. If you do, look up Tom Woods custom driveshafts and get a new one.

The driveshaft issue is kinda wierd. The 93s and 94s came with a U-jointed front driveshaft. The 95s and newer have a mixture some do and some don't have the cv booted ones. I've seen some that have never had problems because they aren't planning on anything more than the beach or going hunting. Yet, this past June, the Grand Slam East director broke two in less than 48 hours.
