The shocks are 1.5 inches longer than stock. The springs fall a little short at full droop.

Oh but a lift can be so simple. BDS 2" Spring lift and shocks for 420 out the door for me. Literally all it is. Put the springs in, put the shocks on, and your good, thats IT. I have it and its great. Improved flex by a ton, and the ride is even nicer than stock. Better flex, better ride, better overall, no adjustments, you might wana look into it. No control arm stuff, no track bar stuff, nothing; its great!

By the way, sweeeet jeep. I like it a lot, like the color and everything

Thanks for the feedback, it's tough sometimes to know if you're REALLY bottomed out when it's flexed like that.
My thoughts exactly! The pics are deceiving. What brand of stops did you get and how much where they?

Thanks for the suggestion, but you might want to take a closer look at your axles. I garauntee they are not centered under the jeep anymore. Better yet, have someone drive behind you down the road and they will see how sideways you jeep is. Not trying to be rude, but trust me, once your tires start wearing funny you will realize it. I know that 2 inches isn't much, but for me a TT is the next purchase.

Prothane inserts that will get somehow attached to the lower spring perch, I think they were $45, worked to about $55 with shipping and stuff. I understand they mostly compress and should give me a softer end to the travel, and if they don't work as advertised, I haven't spent a lot.

Yea but its so miniscule its hard to even measure and you cant see it. My jeep doesnt lean when im driving and my tires are fine, your so skeptical

If i was to redrill a hole for the track bar it would be right next to the current one

It didn't even come with a rear trackbar relocation bracket? JUST springs and shocks?

It's not that hard to measure.

I need to trim a little more from the front of mine. This is with a 1" BL and the factory bumps about half compressed.

Did the AEV front wheelwell cut remove very little material in the real world?

What can I say... I'm a perfectionist! Little stuff like that bugs me. If it doesn't bother you thats fine with me though. Let me know how your tire life goes!
