2" Lift

2" Lift was created by Sinbadiom
Just a quick query, I'm planning on putting 2" spring spacers on my Jimny. I have read that I wont require extended brake hose, but I have also read differing opinions on shock relocation brackets fro the rear. What are he experts opinions on this?

Thanks for any info

not an expert but I do have a 2" lift (spring) The standard brake hoses are fine if you are not removing the anti-roll bar.
The shock spacers will let the suspension droop a little farther before the shock tops out. I only have them on the rear as
when I fitted the springs the anti-roll bar was still on so limiting the front end travel. Its off know. :)

As above, brake lines will be fine unless you remove anti roll bar.

Get shock brackets at the same time.

Front springs on the rear lift the rear by 2inch too :)
