3.5 rough country lift with 2 inch spacer concerns

I just ordered the 3.5 inch lift kit for my 94 zj and I'm already running 2 inch spacers. I was wondering if I could use the lift with the spacers to get more lift. Another concern is can I get away with the total 5.5 inch's of lift with out getting anything but just the lift kit. Do I need a track back just stuff like that. The kit comes with control arms and quick disconnects. But I'm not sure they are long enough because of the added 2 inches.

Thanks.

You will deffinitly need adj track bars front and rear. As for the control arms you may want long arms

If you wanted a 5.5" lift then you should have just gotten a 5.5" lift kit.

Ditch the spacers and stick with the 3.5" lift.

i haven't answered one of these in a while.........

your 3.5" shocks are to short with the spacers.
you will need adjustable track bars front and rear.
i would highly suggest all 8 control arms at least the uppers adjustable.
i'd save up some money for new steering and wheel hubs as well. you'll probably need them.

so as polka said, send it back and order a 5.5" kit
