Another lift question
 
Sorry to rehash a beaten topic. I promise not to ask what size tires will fit.


I have a 2.5" suspension lift. I am thinking of adding a 2" spacers. First of all, is there any certain one you would suggest? I was thinking of just getting the skyjacker:

Secondly, will I likely have to change/extend anything if I add the spacers? It is a 99 if that matters at all..

Thirdly, any tips/warnings/etc you have would be appreciated.

Thanks.

What are you planning on doing in the rear? So are you shooting or 4.5" of lift if so you may need an adjustable track bar longer break lines a slip yoke eliminator for possible drive train vibes, longer shocks, I'm sure I'm forgetting something but its never easy or cheap.

Kit comes with rear lift shackles... I don't know if that would work.

But I am trying to avoid having to mod a bunch of things.

I guess a better question to ask is if I can get away with any more lift without having to mod a bunch of stuff- even say 1" coil spacers.

So if anyone has any suggestions for adding some more lift- even 1" spacers- I am just looking for what I need to get, I guess.

Is the 2.5" lift a true suspension lift? Going up to 4.5" is a lot more complicated than adding spacers and shackles. SYE, brake lines, track bar, adjust steering and alignment, shocks, control arms. It's not a simple $100 to upgrade. You are looking at over $500. Why do you want to go up anyway?

And that skyjacker kit is a rip off. You can get a 2" budget boost for less than $100 shipped at other places.
