No, you don't need it. It's only needed if you're running an SYE kit. SYE kits require you to angle up your pinion/axle; which often causes your shocks to come in contact with your axles. The Extension bracket moves the shock away from the axle enough to prevent this contact.

Current: 2014 WK2: 2" Eibach. 20" Overland wheels. 275/55R20 BFG KO2.
