i know kevins stuff is quality , but ( i think me and you already talked on this). or we sorta talked and somebody else posted as well. i hear that the shocks you use up where you are from, you like them stiff. i like mine loose. just differance in opinion, but so you knw of any looser riding shocks?

Don't use a BB bigger than 2 inches on a ZJ. If you use the stock spacer with the bb, you'll gain 2.25 inches with the lift.

the 2.75 for the front worked for us as a temporary substitute for hunting season so he could run bigger tires and didnt have the cash to throw on a real kit...but we also lenghted the spring post as well. theres nothing wrong with it if you do it right.

The con of using a larger than 2 inch BB on a ZJ is that you run out of room on the rear coil spring tower. Under flex, the spring will spit out and leave you with only three unless you reflex the vehicle and have someone put it back in.


The .25 is already there, true.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I was looking at Kevin's BS ext. for the WJ and it seemed that you would really want those with the BB. They appear to attach to the top and would help keep your spring from popping out. Currently (With my BB) I have no post at the top anymore. Wasn't worried for now cause I knew it would be a while before I got it up north to wheel. Seems like I should have bought them with the BB....In hind-sight, of course.


Now I will have to pay more shipping

do you flex out alot....most people's shocks will catch before they get to the point of a spring popping out, and its not as big a deal on a ZJ either. i wouldnt really worry about it too much if you dont wheel or anything but it takes maybe 1 hr tops and a welder and some pipe and thenhit it with some paint and we were done
