budget boost question?

I think the answer is ... they are all the same ? I thought i would throw it out there! Im looking to go with a bb and they seem to to be all about the same price. daystar comes 1 3/4 with 1" rears and a rear trackar adjusting blocks others have just the pucks w discos others just the pucks.are they all the same just packaged differently w discos ect thanks

They are all basically the same, but some more complete than others. Some have rubber pucks, others have metal spacers. Personally, I would prefer the pucks over the metal spacers. You just have to look at the other items that come with the kits; brake line relocation brackets, rear sway bar links, bump stops, front disconnects, etc. and pick the most complete kit for the money.

exactly as stated above.

technically, a b/b is just as varied as any other type of lift. the differences dont related to spring rate... just whether or not it comes with shocks, swaybar links, and some form of steering or trackbar correction.

most will tell you that you dont need steering or trackbar correction. i've been running an early Black Diamond spacer set since Jan'08. i had no steering or suspension geometry issues.. nor many issues with the ESP.

I ran the Teraflex 2.5" budget boost with 35's for 5 months and about 6000 miles.

I was very happy with the completeness of the kit, and the "performance". The spacers, shock extensions, brake line extensions, rear track bar bracket, and bump stop extensions were all included. It installed easily, and nothing more was needed outside of the kit.

The spacers were shaped and properly fitting. I would have been uncomfortable with straight flat spacers.

BTW - it did take out rake too.

I would recommend it.

07 Rubicon Unlimited - Teraflex 3" prerunner lift, 35's, 5.7 Hemi using AEV kit, Teraflex CRD60 rear with 5:13 gears all around.

I have had the DayStar BB for about... 8months. 10,000miles and I have had no issues what so ever. And this is the basic one, no shocks, or shock extensions or anything... just a BB. About to remove it and throw on a 2.5 in coil lift though, I just want a little flex.

But yea... I would recommend the DayStar.

2008 JKU, ProComps, 35 Kevlar MT/R's, Dana 44s, locked, 5.13, Artic Trusses, RCVs, all types of OR-Fab stuff, PIAA's, 2.5in Suspension lift, Adams driveshaft, Teraflex SpeedBumps, Warn Winch and some other goodies...

thanks guys I presently have a daystar 1" body lift hankook 315/75/16 with cut rails and im just looking for a little more room . I have just done some power line trails ect and dont see myself doing anymore than that between work kids ect.Im thinking w the body lift and the daystar kit it should net me about 2 1/2 inches or so and have a little more room in the fender area...as see it I shouldnot have to worry about brakelines and track bars ect because it onle 1 3/4 in front and 1" in the rear ,would I be correct in thinking this?I will do some seperate discos for the front any more things i should think of to keep it very simple ? I know most people dont like body lifts!!!

if youre not changing your swaybar links, then you wont have to mess with the brake lines. brake line "extentions" are nothing more than a flat plate you bolt to the frame to lower the metal line a couple of inches. if you are crafty with a drill and jigsaw, you can make your own from flat stock you can buy at any home improvement store.

if you disconnect your swaybar, then you may want to make some extentions for the front lines as insurance so you dont rip one out. i still have my factory links on my rubicon. with longer shocks, the swaybar stretches all the way out limiting droop. at that point, my brake lines (in stock location) are as far as is sane. not enough tension to cause any trouble and allows full steering motion without becoming a guitar string.
