2" spring with 2" budget boost...stupid??
I got stuck with 265/75/16 duratracs it's all they had and didn't have time too wait for them to order, I had my tires slashed so I said mount em, I got a 2" BB now and I'm rubbing a bit on the lower arms. I cut the bumper plastic. My question is can I put 2" spring on a bb and add lower arms and track bar, I already have new 2" skyjackers on it. I've searched everywhere and all I can find is a 3" kit for 500.00 iron or a 4" kit from RC for 500.00 can't find 1 inch spring or should I look for a 3" BB ? I'm about out of cash now. I hate to be original plan was 245/75/16 but... Anyway it's an 03 wj 4.0
Thanks for any suggestions I'm lost.

Got stuck with duratracs????? Ill take them off your hands...
If you dont wheel it hard you should be okay. I wouild worry about the springs coming unseated from the pucks though

I bet you would. I wanted 245's I just bit the bullet and bought a lift instead of trying to be super cheap. It worked out good. I had to use RE shock brackets for the rear lowers for tire clearance but it worked out perfect. I was worried about what you said losing a puck.

I realize this is old but for future reference for other people who look..

You're running sway bars im assuming? If thats the case those pucks arent ever gonna come out no matter how hard you flex it, you dont have enough travel.

As for the tires you could make an add on craigslist saying that you will trade down to smaller tires of equal tread and quality and since they are giving the bigger and more expensive tire they can pay for your new mount and balance.

No new pucks, no new springs, no mo money spent!:thumbsup:
