A Simple Lift question

I have a 96 Grand Chero that needs new shocks all around..............So I figured I would buy on of the Budget boost kits available and get 2 things done at once.new shock and a bit of a lift.

So the question is, if I get a 1.5 -2.0 budget lift kit will I have to lengthen my brake lines or do any other mods to make this work well?

No BB is just shocks and pucks. You are gonna be told to wait and get an 3.5" buy many. This is due to the fact that many people get started and keep going bigger for their love of offroading. In the end do what you want but i would wait and get the 3.5" kit and be done. Why you lifting it???

Well I want a little extra room for some of the fishing and camping spots I got to in the summer....I'll probably put a little bigger tire on, that will be usefull for winter also.

Seeing it needs shocks NOW!!.....I wanted to get the biggest bang for my buck....I don't have the cash for the bigger lifts and I don't really need to go 4 or more inches. 3 inches is the max I would go anyway . This is my daily driver.

For about $200 I can get 4 good shocks and the little lift!

Okay then ya i would get the BB. As far as the tire goes i can get a chart after im done typing this to show tires size with the lift for your jeep.

Do yourself a favor though and get good shocks. Cheaper but supposedly really good ones are the Black Diamonds. You can just search google and find some somewhere


http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/tire-size-v-lift-size-chart-134378/ - here ya go anything smaller or up to the recommend will work for ya
