I have a '99 jeep grand cherokee 4.0L. Its all stock right now. I want to put either a 2.0 inch or 2.5 inch lift on it. My question is which one can i do and not have to do any other adjusting? such as transfercase swap? I'd love to go 2.5 inch but if i have to adjust anything ill go 2.0.
Look into the 2 inch BDS lift comes with springs and new shocks. Also, has a no questions asked lifetime warranty! I just put the lift on last week and it seems like i got more than just 2 inches with the lift.. So far i love it and with any lift replace the coil isolators.
I would go with 2" lift springs and longer shocks and new spring isolators. It is really a matter of preference\budget and\or what your want to do with your lift (wheeling\not so much wheeling). Springs would be best for wheeling a lot. Spacers would work too, however, if you run your sway bar links disconnected, you possibly run the risk of a spring popping out. If you really want that extra 1/2" you could always add a 1/2" spacer front and rear
IMO I am looking at a 2" coil spring setup w/ longer shocks, 3/4" spacer for the front, extended link ends, and a JKS Adjustable Track bar.
i went with the 2.5" rusty's lift with new springs and shocks, the only thing you will have to change is if you want to keep the rear sway bar hooked up, you'll have to get longer rear links, but ive been running without mine since i put the lift on and i dont have any problems, i think it runs about $450 shipped? maybe less i dont remember, i am getting a front track bar, but you dont have too, oh and you can fit a 255/70/16 tire with no spacers and no rubbing , just found that out today
