Rough Country Budget Boost no front shock extension ??Why??

The Rough Country 2" leveling Budget Boost only comes with rear shock extensions.

Why wouldn't they give you a front extension if they give you one for the rear??

Especially since the rear only goes up 1" and the front 2"s

The directions are not real clear. If I remember right you are probably talking about the bump stops.

In the rear put the black hockey pucks between the frame and the bump stop cup and use the new longer bolt in the kit. Put back in the stock bump stop.

On the front put the new longer extended bump stops.

I hope this helps.

Mike_Motorbike, you are correct in that they only provide the relocation bracket for the rear. I don't know why that was but I don't think it even does anything to lengthen the shock but takes it out away from the spring perch where many lifts over 3" can bang the shock body into the spring perch.
Where I'm getting at is you probably need longer shocks if you are planning to offroad the lest little bit.

hummm my RC BB didn't come with any shock relocation brackets, guess that is why I thought he was talking about the Bump Stops.

you get what you pay for

buy new shocks to accomodate the added lift or make your own shock relocators.

I believe he has the newer style. Maybe you had the older style.

When I did my 2" bb I only needed longer rear shocks. The rear shocks were about 1/3" from maxed at ride height but my fronts have several inches of down still.

And a bracket for the rear.
