Installing 2in Springs without......
« on: April 16, 2020, 05:17:36 PM »

Ok guys, as some may have seen, I got my OME springs for my 2 inch lift. Right now, besides my already installed BL and MML that is all I have for my lift. I technically still need or want to get front and rear adjustable track bars. Thing is, they are a little over 200 a piece. I am going to have to wait for a month or 2 before I can get those.

My question is, will it hurt anything if I go ahead and put the springs on? I've heard doing 2" spacer lifts would cause the axles to go off a little, but it wouldn't hurt anything. Just a appearance issue. I just want to make sure that goes for the springs too? As long as it isn't a huge problem, I kind of want to go ahead an put them on. :D

Your opinions? :D

Since I don't have slinky springs, I can't give a definitive answer. My guess would be that might not be a good idea. I do know it's not a good idea to not have track bars on.

No, all the stock stuff will still be hooked up. I just read that when you do it that way with the 2 inch spacer lift, it puts the axles off center. Supposedly not much, but to a A D D person, it would drive them nuts. Not supposed to hender it. I just want to make sure that goes for a 2 inch spring lift too. I'll ask in the other forum I go on too.

Well, all the talk of this and then when hubby said something today about making room on the lift for my Jeep this weekend, I got excited and ordered front and rear track bars. I got 6 months interest free so I figured why not? LOL I will get it paid before the 6 months. :D 

Although I won't do the lift this weekend, I will as soon as those get delivered. :D

I'd be more concerned with shocks than track bars.

I had to buy new shocks before I got the springs. I bought the Rancho 5000X for 0-2" lift.  I am being told by another forum that I will have to add .5" bumpstop to the back and nothing in the front. They guy compared the Ranchos specs against the stock TJ specs to come up with that.

OH, and I already have a 1.25" BL and 1" MML to take care of the driveline. I won't need to lower the TC.
