According to the ppl over there as long as you keep the center to fender lift under 23" you should not have CV trouble. I am not saying this, but I have read it. check out the threads and search for omelet's build
Lose or loose?

And what 1/4"'plastic thing are you talking about? Front or rear? Are you talking about the coil isolator?

I'm installing bottom mount RK coil spacers. I can just sit the spacer on top of it right?

And that's how you install bottom mount rear coil spacers? Just place them in? No mounting hardware?

I don't have experience with coil spacers yet.

I really have no experience but my own. So with that I can tell you that all the threads I have read on this, no one has used a bottom mount spacer. The ones I have seen, and plan doing myself, have the spacer between the coil and the jeep.

You will also need longer rear sway links. If you plan on going off road, you'll need an adjustable rear trac bar.

Bro. Post a pic of what you bought. I have not seen a poly lift where the coil sits ontop of the spacer in the rear

Re: Add a Rear Coil Spacer or Not?

Yeah man. The RK lift has a bottom mount spacer. Just like the RRO lift.

Lifted_Up used the RRO rear spacer.
