Didn't need the bracket? How far is the rear/front out? I did a Rusty's 2" spring kit and my rear shifted to the pass. side 3/4".....I'm picking up my bracket today.

Are you getting it from Rusty's or somewhere else? I just ordered the 2" coil lift and might need one too.

I thought about Rusty's but it is $50+shipping and states it is for 3"-4.5" lifts.....on the upside, it is a "no drill" bracket. I got and OME bracket for $20 including shipping. It was made for the 2.5" kit. I just got it today and didn't have a chance to put it on today.

You just will never know if you really "need" a relocation bracket untill you actually do the lift and measure. You should measure bot front and rear to be sure the jeep will track correctly down the road. From what I've read, not many people have to do a relocation braket with a BB or 2" lift.

I guess I'm just LUCKY!
