Bigger lift
I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee with a 4.5" Rubicon Express lift kit on 33" Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. I want to go bigger maybe like 2-2.5". I have the 4.5" coil spring in the front with 2" spacer and the 4.5" leaf pack. I was wondering if i could get the 6" coil spring with 2"spacer and longer shackles to make the lift bigger??

Welcome to the Forum! You can do that but you are going to need an adjustable track bar and a drop pitman arm.

what is the reason you want to go bigger? Not trying to be a jerk but from the sounds of it you are already at a good hieght for the terrain around my parts. (lower center of gravity) What do you do with your jeep?

Like stated above you will need to get a new track bar, longarms and shocks. Since you are already running a SYE you are good there.
For the rear I would recommend running the Shackel relocation brackets from HD Engineering then run a longer shackel.

Good luck on your upgrades!:thumbup1:

Well if thats your reasoning.... make sure everything in your cab is secure so it doesnt hit you in the head when you roll:bangin::D
