They'll make your ride slightly harsher due to their affect on lower control arm orientation and subsequent affects on axle orientation when traversing uneven pavement.

Re: Lift kit. Yes or No??

Go for it!

I have the 2 inch spacers on my ZJ along with a 3.5 inch spring lift. It kicks some a$$ lol. It still rides decent considering. Mine is wearing the pinion seals on the diffs and t-case, but no wonder.

Re: Lift kit. Yes or No??

Go for it, I'm thinking about doing a 2 inch lift as well but if I were to do it I'd get ones with shocks. I'm still thinking about it though.

Take a look at this thread for other lift options incase you want to see your options:

Won't do a thing. He has a solid front axle. I had 2" lift on my '93 and it was fine till the day I sold it. Just get it aligned and you're good to go!

Re: Lift kit. Yes or No??

check your front top spring perches, some 99's had really short fronts, which makes it less than desireable to add a large spacer.....not enough shaft for the spacer to hold on to. as for price-cant beat that price. its also common for wj's to get death wobble from a lift (even a small one), but generally you are ok up to 3". i say go for it.
