Worth it?

I have a line on the BDS 4" coil spring set new. I can't decide if it would be worth it for me to upgrade. I currently have the OME HD coils with .75" spacers. I am getting a true 3.75" of lift, however, I would like to have a full 4" of lift without the spacers. I just installed BDS adjustable LCA's and have an A-arm spacer. The shocks I have measure for 2-3" of lift. Would I need to get longer shocks, or
anything else that would make it not worth the trouble of adding the extra 1/4"?? Would you guys do it, or leave well enough alone?

That is a tough call. If you are rubbing anywhere, especially when turning and or articulation then I would but if you are not having any kind of issue then I would not.

Thanks for the feed back. I had a little rubbing in front, but a little bumper trim did the trick. Any advantages to BDS over OME sprin.gs? Also, if I got the longer shocks, I would add the spacers to the BDS springs and pick up a full inch of lift

Also, if I do buy the longer shocks, I will have Fox Racing shocks and OME HD springs for sale with less than 5000miles on them... Just sayin'

Even though 1 more inch does not sound like alot, you may want to look at getting at least lower control arms maybe even the upper. All wj lift kits come with at least lower arms at 4in and higher.

I just installed adjustable lower control arms. I think if I'm gonna do it, I will put the spacers on the BDS springs for 4.75" and then be done. maybe. The only real expense I think will be longer Fox shocks.
