You should be fine with 2.5" in the springs. But if it were going to be required.... it would only be required in the rear with the spring lift you're discussing.

Each jeep is actually different.

I would guess if you did. Not very much. Unfortunately you wouldnt know until you do it.

Am I recalling things oddly or do I not remember OME springs with a shim already pre-attached to the spring packs?

I don't know, haven't even started searching yet lol. But I'm guessing I'll need them with the 2.5 springs and .5 inch boomers... I'll see if there are any that have them included...

Shims are a compromise and I don’t see the point. If you’re doing an 8.8 you’re already putting new perches on: just put them on where you need them. If you’re staying D35 put new perches on.
My opinion anyway

[size=3]Shackles & D-rings are different things.

Keeping the D35 temporarily so the shims would be needed for now... going to source the 8.8 and get it prepped to swap out. The perches will be properly placed then. Probably going SYE around the same time (hopeefully)

Definitely sounds like a good plan. Depending on the application shims arent bad but when installing the 8.8 and already setting perches might as well eliminate the need for the shims.

When doing your SYE I recommend a Super-short SYE kit. The advantage is added rear driveshaft length as well as a better angle.

Thank you. I have been reading up on the super short SYE.... looks like a worthwhile setup...

Yeah, don't bother with the standard-length SYE. It's pointless. The super-short will eliminate a lot of problems later down the road if you want a tummy tuck. And it's not much more than the regular-length version.
