Because I went to reread all the post and ya same questions were asked. But as far as that goes if my tires do rub on the lca how would I adust te steering stop to fix it when im running a 4in bs? And does anyone have pictures of thei trimmig before and after, I just want to see how I should approch i to make it look alright. And as far as that goes, anyone got tip on installing the 1.75"bb

I would like to say sorry for my previous statements and would like to retract them. Sorry

yeah they were just spacers. and it wouldnt have taken me too long to put on but my dad had the wrong spring compressor so after fiddling with that and getting one spring done i went down and rented the right thing and after that it was pretty easy. but even with all that i got it done in less than a day. and i dont have any pictures of 31's without a trimmed bumper because i trimmed it before i got the tires.



31's before lift with trimmed bumper



31's after the lift



everything fits just fine without any trimming in the back

Yea, don't use the wrong spring compressor. I have a large scar on my hand that needed stitches because I used the wrong one and the spring exploded. I was lucky it was in the wheel well and all it hit was my hand or I wouldn't be typing this. I would be drooling and eating baby food instead. Use strut compressors, not spring compressors.

Yeah that's what I ended up getting. I had the spring compressor form when I worked on my mustang. Worked great for that

Okay about to go to 4wheel parts to get me some 1 3/4in spacers. So are these spacers interchangeable because i see that day stars specs for spacers and it says fronts only but then they tell me you can use it for front and rear.

Also after Im done with the installment, going to the tire shop to do a test fit and if 31's will allow me to go without rubbing 31's it is and if not 30's will do just fine.

Just picked up those strut compressors and also just picked up my spacers from 4wheel parts for 80bucks. About to do some installations right now.

Nice, well I hope everything goes well just like it did yo you to run 31's. But ya installed the spacers in yesterday but they seemed to have play within the bumpstops or what ever there called so I went to double check the daystar parts and they are for front or rear so just didnt question it and installed it. By any chance did that happen to you? Also tires were ordered yesterday and will arrived on monday so I hope the 31's fit.

Same problem here and i just man handled it. But as far as the spacers the front ones were loose and had place and we used zip ties to hold it in place while putting on the coils. The rear was another thing, it had so much play and a feeling of it comming off if anything. I checked the specs and it said it will fit front or rear of a zj so I jut put them on and hope for the best. Also for the trimming, what did you exactly trim, did you just turn the wheel and see what rubbed?

So tommorow is the big day to see how good the KM2's will fit. Also does anyone know how to measure the height of the car to see how much of a lift I obtain and does anyone know the stock height?

Also for the tires, do you guys think the flush mount valve stem is better than the rubber valve stem??

Okay heres my baby with its new shoes. Seemed like everything workedout fine and I went with the 31's. No rubbing anywhere but the front bumper. So I trimmed it to the point where it stopped rubbing. But quick question, I measured all my wheels from the center cap to the fender and everything seems good but my right side rear sits at 21 while the rest sit at 20. Did do something wrong durning my installation for my 1.75in spacers??

Dang those look good! Nice job man! As for the off set, I wouldn't worry about it unless it causes big problems.

But ya, for the rear height problem, how would I go about to fix that?? And also for the spacers is it spring,spacer, then spring isolator for the front and rear because the height from the center of the wheel to the fender is 20in all around but the left rear side which measures 21in.

Do spacers settle because now the measurements are a little bit different.
