It all depends on how much you flex your suspension during that time and the age of the OEM rubber bushings. As they age, they aren't as pliable and tend to not return to original dimensions after being compressed in a certain position for any length of time. You'll probably be OK.

A 2.5" lift will put your front axle out the drivers side ~1/2" and your rear axle ~1/2" out the passenger side. That's 1" of misalignment F to R.

No worries! That's why we're here on the forum to learn and advise. I'm not an expert by any means, but my TJ has been kinda problematic so I've been forced to learn quite a bit when I'd rather be driving it.

Thanks

I have gone thru 3 tires, working on another 2 because of unusual wear. Dealership says they can't find anything wrong so I checked w/a tire co and they say shocks r bad. I only have 28k miles on my Jeep Wrangler 4dr. (2010) Should I replace shocks w RS9000XL or go w/ what dealership wants to put on?
