ZJ lift

I'm doing a 2.25" BB, so what size shocks should I use? I want to do Bilstein 5100's.

Measure your extended and compressed lengths and order using those numbers

The 5100s are what my buddy is running on his TJ and they perform good. I'm actually thinking about them as well.

Email Nick: kolak@aol.com

Hes a vendor in here and knows everything about our Grand Cherokees. I bought my Bilsteins from him. They were the lowest price I could find and I think hes still doing free shipping.

I love mine BTW

I think Nick will recommend 24" Bilsteins. I believe that's what mine are with a 2" BB.

Quick question, I have Monroe heavy duty shocks for my 2" true two spacers and stock coil springs. I was wondering if i would be able to install 4.5" - 6.5" coil springs that would fit my shocks?

You can't have longer coils without the proper sized shock. Well you can but it will suck and the shocks won't last long.
