Suspension Lift w/ Spacers

As I've mentioned in other strings, i'm researching a 4.25" or 4.5" lift for my ZJ. Does anyone know about using 1 3/4" spacers (that i currently have) with a lift in the aforementioned height range? I'd like to know if I'm keeping the spacers or just selling them. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

Keep the spacers.

If you go with either the RE or Tomken lift make sure to upgrade to all adjustable control arms. With the nonadjustable ones, the axles will be moved closer together and the ride quality will suffer. You'll be able to run 33s without trimming or rubbing.



I'm running the 4.5 kit with 2 in bb.

Kess,

I'm not sure how much height you will gain with the stock front coils in the rear.

So, I can't really help you there. Now,

you can run 32s on stock wheels except that they will rub like crazy from the backspacing on your sway bar and your shocks. You could add wheelspacers to push the wheels out further.

I have the stock driveshafts that luckily are u-jointed vice the cv boot.

I bought the tcase skid through www.jpparts.com. I bought the gas tank skid at a u-pull-it junkyard for 36 bucks.

No, you can't run a 2 BB and 33s with no problems. If you could, I'd be doing it.

The 33s will fit inside the wheel wells but, you can't turn and you can't flex.
