Default Stupid Q 3" pucks safe?

Not having cash for a real lift with springs etc.
I need to clear a set of 255/75/.17 on Moabs.
Was looking at pucks and thinking 3" pucks, but having never run pucks.
My old ZJ had a 5.5" lift, my XJ is 3" both springs.
So opinions before i make a mistake...

Thanks,
looking on fleabay coils $130 pair 3.5" rear and 4" front.
Rather see a plat 3" I know start to get into trac-bar and control arms issues if to much.
My old ZJ had 5.5" and was DW *****.

if you are talking coil spring spacers, and not hockey pucks, then yeah, they're safe up to 2 inches or so. i wouldn't go much more without getting into lifted coils.

save your money and get the proper coil overs and suspension lift
JBA off-road has the best in my opinion for GC on the market today and they are reasonably priced

After more reading and the additional things suggested for a WJ at 3" I think I'll keep it at 2.5"
Was looking here.
