lift kit and spacer question
Would there be any problem in putting in a 4" lift kit with 2" spacers and running 6" shocks?
It will ride like crap.without long arms. But if you don't care. You can get away with aftermarket control arms

Yeah the biggest issue here is that people will try to do that on short arms. That ride will be crazy rough and it can mess with some of your angles and they might be off. Once you get above 4", some would say at 4", you need you need long arms. So as long as you are getting a long arm setup you should be fine. It has been done on short arms but it isn't recommended at all.

I have the 4.5" teraflex springs with the OME 10mm (=.4") up front and am right at 5" on short arms. The ride is okay, but I would definately NOT go any higher with my short arms. With the angle of the arms now, I have little down travel which means poor flex. I eventually plan to go long arms, but it's not in the budget right now. I have the same set up in the rear PLUS the KOR 3/4" spacer. With the heavy TAG bumper, spare tire, and trail gear my back end was sagging so I added the spacer. I'm still at 5" of lift in the rear and the ride is still just okay at best.

No, it wont ride like a caddy, but your lifting something and im shure bigger tires. You can do it, and if your ok with a "jeep" ride then you will be alright. If you get a good set of shocks and adjustables i think it would be alright, because i know good long arms get pricey, quick.

I added 2in spacers to my 4in kit. It wasn't terrible at first then I started to get death wobble! I now have long arms.. Much better! Lol
