Yes the suspension has settle down now, and steering is a little bit lighter, but with the big jimny steering damper kit it still ok, I'm very happy with the lift :)

like it alot, do rear shock relocation brackets lift the body slightly im confused,i were thinking if you put 1.5 inch shock relocation brackets on on ther own you would lift the body up but not to 1.5 inch because they would compress a bit more.i were just thinking that i could lift the rear slightly more by fitting them.

No the rear relocation brackets don't lift the body, they make the the shocks 1.5" longer when you fit the 1.5" spring spacers.

Fitting a 2"(50mm)or 3"(75mm) lift.
If you got a set of longer brake hoses fit them first this is only on the 3"lift, not needed on the 2" lift but you can fit them if you won't to.

You will also need to fit some rear shock brackets on the 2" and 3" lift, If you think you need them you can also fit a set of caster correction + adjustable pan-hard rods this is up to you.

Next (WD40) all the nuts and bolts on the shocks for about 2 days before starting.

Start with the rear axle first,undo the wheel nuts a little,then jack up on the axle or the chassis on both sides and lower on to axle stands as close to the radius arms as possible , so the tyres are about 2"to 3" off the ground,now remove the wheels.

Next place the trolley jack in the middle of the rear axle, jack it up so you can remove the nuts+bolts from the old shocks.

The top bolts on the rear shocks might be seized on so take your time until the (WD40) has done it's job if they undo with no trouble go on to the next stage of the job, if not don't fit the lift springs with the old shocks, refit the old springs until you can remove the top bolts.

Next lower the axle down keeping an eye on the old brake pipe on the 2" lift,(don't over stretch it) that's if you haven't fitted the longer brake hoses, now remove the old rear springs.

Next it's time to fit the new springs you might need some help from a mate, to help you fit the springs back on, or as l did used a length of wood just to lever the axle down a little more to get the new springs back on, now jack the axle back up so the springs sit back in the axle saddles.

Now it's time to fit the stock brackets and shocks if you are using pro comp shocks you will need to cut the top bush rubbers and sleeves to fit in to the shock mountings. just measure one of old top stock bushes.

Now do the front the same way as the back, It helps to undo two bolts on the stabiliser link which hold the axle to the anti roll-bar.


If you need the axles to drop a little more with the 3" lift you will need to remove one of the panhard rod bolts.

When your finished (CHECK) all the nuts +bolts+ wheel nuts are tight.
Hope this helps.
