Lift question??

Been looking thru post using the search option to see if there was a straight forward answer, but I came away more confused than ever.

So forgive me if this is an old question!

I have a 1.75" Spacer lift with Rough Country shocks, I want to go an inch higher. Can I simply change out the springs (removing the spacers all together) With 3" or 3.5" lift springs? Or would I need to change other parts of the suspension also to accommodate the extra height?

You could just go with a 1" body lift. Easy install and not very expensive.

Breaking the 2" lift height mark is really a turning point for the JK where you really want to start looking into adding a few different items, like a front track bar to properly center the axle side to side, possibly front lowers for caster and axle positioning correction, rear track bar or relocation bracket to properly center the rear track bar, possibly rear lowers to adjust the pinion angle, extended sway bar end links and possibly brake lines.

We know it sounds like alot, but it can be done in stages. Just choose your stages wisely.

I agree with both of the above post but if you really only want 1" then the body lift is the way to go for ease and saving $$$.
