Bilstein's and Rough Country wheel spacers

my WK is getting the Bilstein HD's today along with the wheel spacers. Once my tires run out, its time for the 2' lift and tires. From what i've read, the ride should change for the better.

Re: Bilstein's and Rough Country wheel spacers

The billsteins will make a world of difference. Get the OME springs instead of a BB and you will be very happy with the improved ride.

Re: Bilstein's and Rough Country wheel spacers

Why not just wait and get the lift installed when the shocks are being swapped ? Makes no sense cause your going to pay two times for the installation.

Most budget 2" lifts only cost about $150.

The OME lift kit is only about 2 hundred more than the billstiens and RC budget lift.

Re: Bilstein's and Rough Country wheel spacers

You can get just the OME coils for $300 and use the Bilstiens HD's. That is what I did after upgrading from a BB.

And antsjeep is 100% right do it all once. Don't pay for installation twice.

Don't you get another half inch if you do it that way?

It does give you more lift but it's more
like 3/8 of inch.
