If you make spacers for the back you probably wouldn't want to make them more than .5" thick bc the geometry of the back gives you almost twice the lift at the wheel of the thickness of the spacer. there are poly tj spacers alot of people have been using on the wk2 which work but I've only seen .75" poly spacers. The .5" I saw on ebay were steel and I don't think you would want to use them as the poly spacers have to stretch a bit to fit over the spring isolators. the .75" poly spacers might raise the back more than you want.
Its a TAD bit stiffer than stock but its barely noticable to me... its a little "sharper" over cracks and small bumps in the road but its really not too noticable. The roads here in Castle Rock, CO are terrible and its still a nice ride... on the freeway, its the same as stock if not better. Barely hear any hum from the tires even!
A guy Ive talked to back in AZ has a '14 was telling me about the .75" spacers made for a TJ that'll fit the WK2. I don't know much about doing these kinds of little mods so I'm getting advice from anywhere before I do it haha! Don't know anything about the trim packers. What are those all about?
Didn't know spacers basically double the height tho. Good to know! 1" might be way too much then. Was told by the friend with the jeep shop that there's plenty of room to go up a bit more in regards to the CV joints. I really wanna keep the bigger tires but am tired of the rubbing off road haha.
Also, are the spacers vehicle specific? Spring specific? Or is it just diameter size that counts?
