Daystar 3/4 inch lift

I've had the itch for a lift for a while and just simply don't have the $$$ for a large lift nor do I plan to run larger than 32" tires. I decided to get the front and back 3/4 inch coil spring spacers to give my jeep a little bit more sporty look without having to make any other purchases. Is this install doable by myself without prior experience? I have very basic know how but am willing to learn if I can work my way through without causing too much damage. Thanks

So long as you can jack up the axle/wheel and remove the srping and add the spacer to the spring, it is doable. Do a quick search for this and you will find more info. You have to disconnect the shocks, sway bar links and control arms to drop the spring out. If not, get a spring compressor to take them out.

Thanks. Directions are very vague that came with the kit. I'm assuming it will take a while?

Got it done today. Took all day for sure. It's a noticeable but mild for sure. I wouldn't do more without bigger tires.

Hehe, just kidding. I know what you mean, I installed the high-rise fender flares on a 3-inch lift and now my 35's look puny.

Lift for your tires - don't lifting for the sake of lifting.

Pics would be nice!

I would love to see a pic of that as 3/4 is as high as I want to go.
