BD 3" Lift

Okay Im looking to get a 3" lift for my 08 jk. I was wondering though why it comes with shocks. Isnt this technically a suspension lift. My friend says i dont need this and he can get me something cheaper, however i found this to be a good deal.

Here is the link.,16110.020

You typically need longer shocks with a lift of any size in order to accommodate the increased suspension travel (both up and down) that the lift provides. Otherwise, you may bottom the shocks on compression before you reach the end of the available suspension travel in compression, or you may run out of travel (extension) in the shock before you reach the full droop potential that the lift can provide, or both.

X4 on what gcg said.

This is the lift i'm getting. It's gotten great reviews and it's a great price too. Plus from what i've found out, BD (or superlift) has close ties to Chrysler so i'm sure they've done their proper homework and maybe even had some input or tech specs from the Chrysler guys when designing the JK lift.

If you check out their sight, it has a good video on the JK's suspension and what they did.
