Re: Good suspension for 2" lift?

For a 2" lift you can go w the Rough Country Spacer lift and Biltsein struts n shocks.

http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_wk_2.html for the lift (you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere but that's the base price)

http://www.allshocks.com/bilstein/ht...ear=%272007%27

Good luck!!! There are tons of threads on here and a lot of us are running this lift and shocks. I am!

You'll be happy with them. Just make sure you glue the rubber sleeve in place before you install them. A number of us have had the the coils push the sleeve down to the bottom of the shock. Then the coil rubs on the shock body and and makes all kinds of scraping noises and squeeking. Other then that they're awesome.

Are you getting the stock length or the F-150 model?

Re: Good suspension for 2" lift?

Somebody said they used Gorilla Glue, I used Phenoseal cause that's what was closest to me. With the F-150 shocks you'll need some washers on the top mount as well. I think I used 2 or 3 per side.

Ditto. I just did my jeep with the RC 2", Bilsteins and 1.5" spidertrax spacers. Worked out well. Also did the pinch weld mod while I was at it.
