1980 cj5 1" body lift problem

I just installed the daystar 1" body lift. On the body mounts in front of the gas tank, there are brackets that go from the mount to the rear of the jeep. When installing the lift these brackets do not fit back on. Is it ok to leave them off?

Also why does the daystar kit have different kits for 76-79 and 80-86? My frame is an 80 but the tub might be a 79.

I never put mine back on (almost 2 years) and haven't had any issues. I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks for the replies. That makes me feel better about leaving them off. By the way here are some pics of what I am talking about.

Mine doesn't have them either.

That's kind of funny because that brace looks just like a mystery part picture someone posted on here a couple weeks ago asking what it was and where it went.

I found a way to make mine work but it's been too long ago. I don't remember how now.

I don't think it adds much support and don't think you'll miss it as long as everything else is solid.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

not sure how

I made mine fit in an '82 CJ7, but I really don't know what I did to make it go. I'd say you should be fine without. If I remember right, that was a PITA to get that to go.

Looks like another 1" spacer and a longer bolt on the other side would make it work. If you are that concerned about it. You would have to insulate those lines and wiring to prevent chafing.
