    Default One Inch Lift

    Is a one inch lift worth the money...are there any advantages or disadvantages? I had a tech. at the dealer mention it to me the other day. What is a ball park estimate?

    Your feedback would be appreciated. I have a stock 2004 TJ Sport.

    Merry Christmas!!

    Thanks,
    Dave

    1" and 2" lifts are just pucks. $60 and you may or may need new shocks so price accordingly. I had 2" pucks on my XJ and I ran stock shocks for during college.... then I went taller.

    I don't see the point of 1 inch. Unless you need a little more clearance because of your tire choice.

    But just doing 1 inch with no tire change doesn't net you any real benefit.

    It depends on the 1" lift. If you are talking about a body lift, it can be very useful. Solves the problem of rubbing with 31s on a stock suspension, or in my case allows for 33s with only minor rubbing on a very modest 2" spring lift. Even a 1" spring or spacer lift can help solve saggy springs, compensate for heavy accessories or give a little more clearance without having to replace a bunch of other stuff. You could also shop around for some Rubicon springs, a little stiffer spring rate has the same effect as a small lift.

    If your going to do a BODY lift I would not go more than 1" , if you go any higher it just doesn't look right and then you really should look into longer shocks !! But I got good gains from a 1" body lift especially for the price and the ease of install , and I think it helps even for a smother ride because your body is no longer sitting completely on the frame and the body seems to flex more ??

    I think you need to retorque your body mount bolts if you are getting more flex after a body lift.

    Its not actually flexing the way I made it sound (not like a 4 wheeling flex) !! Its just that the whole body went from sitting on the frame to just 8 points and it seemed to get smother and not allow all the vibrations of the road to completely transfer through to the body as much !!

    If the whole body is sitting on the frame a body lift is the last thing Id worry about

    The best body lift size to get for your situation would be the 1 1/4" body lift with the 1" motor mount lift. It helps correct everything else after doing the body lift. JKS makes a great product for this.
    Make sure you hit all of the bolts with PBS or similar for "days" before or be prepared for some broken body mount bolts and they are no fun to drill out and fix.
