Hello, i want to lift my Jimny 2" with spring spacers, i have stock shocks but they need to be replaced. I read that the rear shock works better with the relocation brackets, the spring spacers i bought come with +50mm brackets for people who stay with the original shocks... so if i put +2" shock absorbers i can fit the brackets too? or it's better to stay with original shock size and just use the shock brackets on them for cope the spring spacer? Regards :cheer:

If you replace the dampers with longer ones you won't need the relocation mounts. If you do use them you are at danger of the dampers topping out under compression which as a minimum reduces travel and at worst smashes the dampers to bits.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

what would you recommend? +2" shocks or use brackets as spacer and relocation (turn the mount 90°). I can't decide because i read too many post that say the brackets are highly recommended for a proper work of the dampers, giving them more freedom to move and a better bottom support.

pd. sorry if i spam you with replies, my internet was doing some weird things trying to reconnect :dry:

It's always best to use longer dampers, but the most important thing to do, whatever suspension parts you fit, is to check the bump stops meet before the dampers fully close. If not you will snap the lower damper mount off. The relocation brackets are especially bad for this.
