Re: TJ Spacer lift question
The trailmaster 2" lift I used to run came with 2" spacers, bumpstops, and shocks. I never measured until I was selling the kit, and when I did I found that the shocks were the exact same length (compressed & extended) as the factory shocks. The factory shocks were the HD gas charged that come with the 30" tire/wheel package.
Also, we put on a 1-3/4" daystar spacer kit on my buddies '97 tj, along with a 2" body and some quick discos running 33" tsl's. He never had any problems with shocks even when disconnected.
My point is that personally, I wouldn't put the money into shocks unless you're going with taller springs because you don't gain any flex with spacers.
