lift add on

Im trying to figure out if anyone has put coil boosters on top of a lift kit to add some more clearnce. I have a 3.25 rough country lift with no body lift modifications. I figure i will have to buy new shocks to compensate for the diffrence, but if anyone has done it or know if it would work let me know.
-thanks

Most usually add spacers in the front or back to level out the rig. If you want more height run taller springs and depending on what you go with depends on what shock length you need.

It works fine. I did it on my 02 TJ 2" Old Man Emu springs and 2" spacers.

I have 4 new zone hydro shocks for sale...PM for a price.

If you add more than 3/4" spacers,you'll need more than shocks to compensate for the height increase.

Looks like this, but your front springs should already have a hard rubber spring isolator on top.

it's usually done by those that don't understand suspension dynamics, coil bind or the subsequent problems.
