will these coil spacers work

I am asking this on behalf of my friend, he just got a cherokee and I dont know much about them either. We're both curious to see if a coil spacer budget lift will work. (not cause any problems, be effective, etc.) The Cherokee has no lift to begin with and stock coils and shocks.

Here is the link: http://www.rocky-road.com/xjbudget.html

thanks guys.

If you only need a budget boost to raise the Jeep a couple of inches, then yes, it'll work.

I just put coil spacers on my MJ this weekend so that I can put some slightly larger tires on. In the back, I added an XJ main leaf to lift it 2 inches.

i heard that on the mj you can put the rear leafs over the top of the axel instead of hanging on to the under side of it and you can end up with a 3 inch lift in the rear, then just get the front lifted

Is the lift I just showed yall like a body lift or is a Cherokee a unibody vehicle. If it is a unibody, will the spacers lift the whole car like a normal lift, but without the new shocks, coils, etc.

xjs are unibodys so the frame is welded to the body. those spacers will lift the suspention. but don't do any thing more than 2 inches

That's an SOA conversion and will actually net you about 5.5 inches.

I don't have any personal experience with rocky road, but from what I've read on here you may want to steer clear from them. try jeepin' outfitters, or quadratec, they have the same basic kits, and a lot better reputations.

This is going to be very vague question but im not completely sure about rocky road.com and dont want to have my friend get ripped off. So if you guys know where i can find a decent 2in" lift for under $200, that would be great.

http://www.quadratec.com/products/16300_804.htm I know this is over 200 bucks, but it comes with shocks. jeepinoutfitters sells the same kit for the same price also.
