2" spring spacers and leveling kit

New to forum, just have one question. I wanted a slight lift and leveling kit for my gc, so I opted for the spring spacers that top the springs. Did I waste dollars, or a good buy? Also I have a type 3 driveshaft, does the length need to be adjusted when the spacers get installed? Any comments would help!

2 inch is ok but if you here a knock in boot when you go over speed humps its because the standard shocks are bottoming out, which is ok but you'll probably get new rear shocks which are 2 inchs longer later, I also did this with my wj and fitted 2 inch wheel spacers, it just makes the jeep look a bit more aggressive, also get your wheel alignment checked as your probably running toe in now.

Hi Drbondo,

I bought the Rocky Road spacers for the front of my 2013 GC and it certainly fixed the nose down look. These are 1.75" and achieved what I was looking for. The postage to Australia was a bit steep but was the only way I could get them.

Pete
