    Default Coil spacers

    I already have 4" lift springs (from what the previous owner told me). But the rear of my zj sags a decent amount and I've been considering coil spacers until my lift is built (could be 10-12 months). I guess my question is if i do 1.75" spacers will I have any issues with brake lines or anything else for that matter. I don't plan on changing tire size from the 31-10.5-15's just want to restore lift and clearence for the time being

    Like always,
    Thanks guys

    I just installed a 2" coil spacers on my JK and brake hoses are ok.(Still have travel)
    However the JK might be different from yours.
    You can allways extend the brake hose bracket down.

    if youre stock springs are sagging, then lifting it back up to the original height shouldnt be an issue.

    They are aftermarket but well used. Previous owner hauled a camper quite often. I'm debating on doing them front and rear.

    That's something you'll have to look at and see. If the lift in it now was installed correctly, and you're just bring it back to 'level', you should be OK.

    Best way to find out, is to put it on a hoist, or jack up just the body, letting the suspension droop fully, and see what, if anything, get's stretched or tight.

    (want to do this slowly of course, or you may rip out a breather or brake line)

    Things to watch for would be: Brake line (s), breather (s) and parking brake cables.


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    hey i have a ZJ also, go get some V8 ZJ front springs, and 3.5-4.0 lift springs and shocks and run on your stock arms, it will net you around 3.5-4.0 inches of lift and cure your sagging issues, the front springs from the V8 ZJ go in the Rear, and the new lift springs go up front.

    not trying to hotlink but check out these 2 sites

    both are Grand Cherokee sites and have a shit ton of info!
