I recently had the 2.5" lift done on my liberty, but I've found that after going over speed bumps, etc. the front end seems to "slam" back down. It's extremely rough. Does anyone have any idea what might be the problem. I had the daystar 2.5" coil spacers installed. Thanks for the help!
There is plenty of information on the problems of the 2.5" Daystar Puc lift. Most vendors are now offering a "cutdown" version of the spacers. I cut my own to 1.25". The problem is that you are putting a 2.5" spacers inside the limited space of a strut. Without longer strut inserts, you have compressed the front spring too much. With 4" of upward travel, you have effectively removed 2.5". That leaves your struts with 1.5" of travel. It is really not safe to drive on a suspension that is that stiff on the road. Your rear shocks will also top out because they are not long enough to extend with the extra 2.5" of static extension.
Either contact who sold you the spacers, cut your spacers down to size ( not all that easy ) or drive careful and wait for the longer strut inserts. Rusty's has had some on order and in the making for months. He already has the longer travel rear shocks and they do help.
You should not even try going off-road with the setup as it is. I hope this helps and doesn't discourage you.You should read this thread from JeepsUnlimited...
