how much lift should I expect? (pieced together lift)
 
I have everything I need for my Frankenstein lift just wondering what height I should expect front and back. Here is what I have

Rear:
New stock oem leaf packs (dorman)
1.5 or 2 inch adjustable lift shackles (rugged ridge)
Shackle relocation brackets (homebrew)
2.5 inch long add a leafs (zone)

Front:
4.5 inch coils (zone)
2 inch poly spacers (brand unknown)
Fixed lower control arms (IRO)
Stock upper control arms for now
Adjustable track bar (IRO)

Now I don't know if I should use the 2 inch pucks as that will likely get me up to about 6.5 and I don't think my rear will sit that high.

Your rear will be wanting for another 2".
Check out GOJEEP.com for a method to extend the mountings for leaf front and rear, that will pick you up another 2" for sure. Alternative, yes I am about to say it, Blocks, (always a topic of cordial controversial conversations) blocks have con's.
Check the GoJeep method. You will need a welder.
Lifting that high, you'll need to look at your driveshaft length, trans linkage, and brakes flexlines at droop.

If you lift over 3" you "WILL" need to spend a lot more money than what you have planned for sure. Even at 3" you need new shocks for what ever the lift is.

I have shocks I have everything I need even bump stops. The only thing i need is brake lines and I'm thinking im just gonna run yj lines. I even have a t case drop no sye and I'm leaning towards not using the 2 inch pucks because I want my rear higher than the front and I don't need anything over 4.5 anyway.

At 4 1/2" mine required an SYE along with a lot of other items going from a 3-4 1/2" of lift and what do you plan on doing about the driveshaft angle in the front?


But if you have it all figured out good luck let us know how it goes.

If I run into vibes then so be it I will address accordingly. TC drop with stock driveshafts has worked perfectly fine for me at 4.5 before. I understand the emphasis that sye is the right way to go but it's also a more expensive way to go. I will definitely keep posted as this isn't a box lift so it can either go on smoothly or give me problems. We shall see

Since you brought up T-case drops. Im looking at a 5.5 inch suspension lift on my zj (might put on the 2" pucks i have laying around on with it) what kinda T-case drop should i do? (not trying to steal your thread lol)
