Adding 3/4" day star budget boost to a 3.5" RE lift.. Thoughts.

So I found a free brand new Daystar 3/4" Comfort Ride Budget Boost Kit... I'm thinking why not throw it on... I have a 3.5" Rubicon Express standard kit... I can just toss the spacers in right? I mean theoretically the day star kit is used on a stock suspension so I should be good... Has anyone else done this?

Short answer is yes.

Only thing to really check will be the brake lines.

I just got the same spacers at 4 wheel parts an hour ago for 35 dollars. About to stack them on top of my 3'' Trailmaster lift.

You will want to adjust your control arms for pinion angles and caster specs.

You will want to adjust your trackbars to center your axles.

At over 4", your steering angles will be a little steep. If you feel like you end up with a little bumpsteer, you can upgrade to a drag link flip kit, or you can remove the coil spacers.

Your shock length limits your droop. So, with the same shocks, you shouldn't need longer brakelines.

Your driveshaft angles will be steeper. So, the joints wouldn't last as long.


Edit:

I missed that you have an RE 3.5" Standard instead of a Super-Flex.

In that case, you cannot adjust your control arms. You are limited to front lower cam bolts. You cannot adjust your rear trackbar because you use the stock one with a relocation bracket.

Because the only adjustability you have is the front trackbar and front lower cambolts, I would suggest you do not add the coil spacers.

And this is the response I look for! Thank you planman! I'll wait it out!
