Can these springs be used with a budget boost lift with no other modifications necessary? Such as drive shafts etc.:idontknow:

I dont want to hi jack you thread but was wondering the same thing I have a 2.5 bb. If I take out the spacers and just add the 3" spring will that work. I have a 2 door. Non rubi.

You would need a front shaft if you plan on wheeling, longer shocks or shock extensions, swaybar links. You could get away with brakeline brackets.

It won't handle great, but it would work

DAG NAM IT, I knew it would require additional stuff, I just knew it. S*@T:doh:

At least LCA's to adjust your Caster / Pinion angle.. But yes, Longer Shocks, or adapters. among other things..

He can run it without, it just will be a little flighty. He's asking for a budget lift.

To add why would you or do you need that high of a lift anyway? What size tires are you running?

I suppose you could run teraflex exhaust spacers. But you will need a front shaft sooner or later.

So, 3" coils + a BB spacer lift..and it will be Just a little flighty? I'm not sure we're all on the same page. I'm seeing it as at least 3.75"+ of lift..at a min, if the BB is 2", than call it 5" of lift.. Like you said, I hope not that much lift.

I don't think he's running the spacers on top of that. Hell I hope not!

I would remove the budget spacers if I got the 3" EVO plush rides. Would that work without additional mods? I guess that should of been my original question.:blush:

Up to about 3" TOTAL lift, you can get away with minimal changes..but eventually it's gonna catch up to you. Steering will be flighty, Drive Shaft issues, Shock Length, etc..
Depends on what the BB is/was. if 2-3", then you're basically swapping existing height, for a better/softer ride, but similar issues you may have now..

No, see all my above posts. It's the minimal you need

THANX, I guess I'll be using my current set up for awhile. Besides its done well for the type of wheeling we do here in Florida, no real rocky terrain. just mud and not much else.:standing wave:
