Good & cheap 1.5" or 1.75" coil spacers?

I am looking to score a set of 1.5" or 1.75" coil spacers for my 2000 TJ.

I was wondering if there are any differences between brands and/or materials they are made of. The cheapest ones i found were at -fatbobsgarage- for 29.99 per pair, so $60 all together.

Does anyone have any better suggestions as to where to purchase these?

I am also going to re-drill the front track bar and add a steering stabilizer. I was wondering if the 1.5 or 1.75 is likely to give me driveline vibrations AND whether i need a rear track bar relo bracket as well, or no?


This little lift is all strictly for aesthetics for now, so I decided on the 1.5 or 1.75 not to exceed the length of the stock shocks and not to have to purchase new tires, since i already have 31" MT/R's, i will be doing a 3-4" with 33's in a few months though

You wont need to make any changes for the track bars and unless your current stabilizer is shot don't waste your money on a new one

I have 1.75" spacers and shocks if your interested. Shipping shouldn't be crazy. Skyjacker spacers and skyjacker hydro 7000s. Like others said you don't need to mess with anything else just add the spacers and be done.

I am really on a budget here so i'd be interested in just the spacers for now.

Would you sell me those separately? If so, I'll take them right away!

If you're about to go to 4" lift soon, DO NOT drill the trackbar bracket. You'll be a little off center but for a few months so what? I'd rather not drill the track bar bracket and have it 100% stock and intact for the big upgrade.

I would rather not separate spacers and shocks, only 6k on spacers and shocks. Will let them go for 75 plus shipping.

Just 6K? And no shocks are leaking or anything? Everything is good to go?

AND PLEASE snap a pic or two of it all, if you can

Yeah I bought the bb on impulse then went to a 4" lift. nothing wrong with the shocks or anything, small specs on surface rust them because of the salt but they work great. I can snap some pics of them tonight. I have pictures of them new. Shocks will need boots if you choose to run boots. May need to snag a nut or two for the top stud on front shocks. I had to reuse my old ones since I deided to lose the new ones
