That lift is only a 2" lift just like all the other BB out there. You will not get 3.5" out of it.

Re: "Stacking" up to the Superlift

im confused on the SL how do you gain down travel with the same factory front shock?......you need longer shocks+springs= more droop or down travel.....i can understand the rear gaining down travel......

The front lift is achieved from a 4" spacer, so you still have the same stock shock travel but it is moved down. let's say the stock front suspension has 8" of travel with a ride hight of 20". You instal the SL spacer which gives you a lifted ride height of 24", but you still have 8" of suspension travel. As a posed to the OME which gives you let's say 10" of suspension travel, but the lift is using some of that travel. So at a stock ride height of 20" you are in the middle of your suspension travel, say 4" up and 4" down. You instal the OME lift and gain 2" of suspension travel for a total of 10" and have a ride height of 23", but the lift is using 3" of that down travel. So instead of having 5" of up travel and 5" of down travel, you have 8" of up travel and 2" of down travel. If any of that made sense so far In the end the SL has a max down travel of 4" past the 24" ride height for a 28" full extension. And the OME has a max down travel of 2" past the 23" ride height for a 25" full extension. Yes this is one of the many things I ponder over on a regular basis

The rear suspension is 4" over stock and is achieved with new coils. Your stock shocks have a max extension of about 24" and the SL shocks have a max of 28". The OME shocks max out at 26".

Re: "Stacking" up to the Superlift

What Nate said^^^^. Also with the SL spacer the lower control arms are dropped increasing said downtravel.

thanks for clearing that up for me....i couldnt figure it out without actual numbers , but in a nutshell you dont gain more droop it just offers moar than the OME.....

Re: "Stacking" up to the Superlift

hey nate, say i wanted to gain a .5" with the OME for around a 3.5"- i know i could do the rustys strut spacer in the front, what could i do for the rear? add another isolator in the rear or would i have to shave down a spacer to gain a .5"? i know it doesnt sound like much and youre prob asking why a .5" but i was just wondering cause im not looking to go through the hassle of a new adj trackbar, etc. have the extended links already (my bwoodys for a 2" are actually long enough for a 3")

Yep you could add another isolator to the rear and that should give you about .5" more lift. Or you could use something to make a circular .5" spacer with a hole in the middle. I would say you could add a set of load levelers, but they would probably give more than you want.

i think i saw load levelers will give you 1.5". have you come across any rear spacers for another jeep vehicle that would work, like a .75" spacer for a JK or anything? i see teraflex makes a 1/2" spacer for the JK.

Re: "Stacking" up to the Superlift

I thought about trying that originally, but I didn't want to waist money when I could just chop down a WK one. You could give it a try and let us know though!
