can u stack poly spacers?

can you stack poly spacers to lift your jeep? I'm getting a 1.5in poly coil spacer kit and shocks. but I'm wondering if i can get go back in a couple months and get more spacers and stack them for a 3in lift?

Very bad idea, there would only be the little lip on them holding them together. Using just one it sits up in a hole and the bumper stop is in the center to help catch it if it tries to pop out...

you could stack them. and they wouldnt pop out due to the huge bump stop column through the middle of
them. -(front)

the back, maybe an issue though.

you should just save a little more and just buy the coil springs. do it right, the first time.

Can I put a 4in lift on and then put the spacers on top of that? Or do the sizes cause and issue?

nope. springs won't have enough room to compress and you'll get coil bind in both front and rear. you'd need twice as much bumpstop, and that would defeat the purpose of the lift.

If, IF, you did want a spacer 3in lift, this site called fat bobs garage sells 3in coil spacers....

I wouldnt recommend it, get new springs if ya want 3inches
