Spacer lift vs Suspension lift

Hoping to get some good feedback here...

I am looking to get a 2" lift put on my TJ, and I am still deciding on whether to go for a spacer lift or a suspension lift. I understand that a suspension lift is far better, but it will cost me about 3-4 times the cost (got a cheap spacer kit 2nd hand).

My question is this; How much better is an OME suspension lift than a Teraflex spacer lift?


p.s I'm not looking to go higher than 2", so upgradability isnt a concern.

susp. lift runs you into all kinds of problems.. drivetrain angles.. SYE kits.. not to mention new diff gears depending on the tire size..

same goes for body lift.. bout the only prob i can think of with body lift is the tires rubbing when turned all the way..

If you are not looking at going any higher than 2" then a spacer lift is what you want. daystar has 1.75" spacers and a complete set will run around $80.00 and take less than 2 hours to install with basic tools. Shocks are seperate but are not required, but I would eventually get new shocks. With this lift you can fit 32's.
