ACOS and spacers in rear?

Would running ACOS up front with spacers for the rear springs be ok? Or do you need to run ACOS all around on all 4 springs if you run them?

On a side note:

I have RC 2.5" SL, JKS 1.25" BBL, if I toss the ACOS on with 1" spacers in the back would I be able to run 35's effectively on the trails? Or should I wait and go with a 4" suspension(with my 1.25" BL) down the road and be satisfied with 33's for now?

I'm looking to upgrade from my BFG AT's 31x10.5xR15 which like to fold under the rim all the time when aired down to 10-12 psi when offroading.

Thanks in advance!

I run that exact setup, ACOS front and 2 in poly in the rear. There is no reason you cant do it. I may have pics if you want to see them.

I run the setup with Rubicon Unlimited coils on my 4bngr TJ. I also run a 1.25"BL on 35" KM2s. Make sure you have articulating arms and track bars as well as long travel shocks with properly sized bump stops/extensions.




July 4th weekend in Clayton, OK in Green Acres.




a little high centered
