BJ's 2" Lift Springs from Deaver

Post by Scotty54 »

I just completed installation of BJ's 2" lift kit. Also installed were new shackles from TGW. The entire process was very smooth and fit perfectly. I want to publicly plug Deaver, the manufacturer of the actual springs. When I received the shipment from BJ's I called Deaver to confirm that I had the correct parts (just wanted to be sure before I disassembled!). Deaver had to find their "Jeep guy" who was somewhere in their shop, and when he got on the phone he was happy to run my part numbers. All good! He then urged me to call him if I had any trouble with installation, and he didn't care how many times I had to call. I appreciate that level of service. And a plug to BJ's for marketing a quality, American made product.

Not yet - still working on brake lines, plus I took the opportunity to clean up a lot of surface rust underneath. Still a little painting to do.

After the lift install. Wheels and tires are next! The rear appears to be slightly higher than the front but before and after height measurements show an almost perfect 2.5" lift on all four corners.

Tire diameter and actual height to the fender well will be of interest to future readers ... maybe even to readers today. Note the actual tire diameter will be a little different from the size printed on the tire. Suggest you put a straight edge across the top of the tire and measure to the ground.
