Why do you want to give it another 2 inches of lift? Unless you have tyre to body clearance issues the 2inch spacers serve no purpose... appart from causing issues with prop shafts binding and issues with castor of the front wheels etc. I would personally spend the money on something else... Sorry if that is being negative- just my humble opinion.

Leave it as 2" or you are going to open a whole can of worms let alone ££!!

Remember, the diff will still be the same height above the ground withough mahoosive tyres.

Save your ££ for a pint after greenlaning to the pub......... :rolleyes:

As people mention say above, what do you want this extra 2" of lift to achive.

I am running a combination of spring and body lift for tyre clearance, thought I would prefer to just make the inner wheel arches bigger, though all modifications are compromises.

I found a body lift caused more problems to be delt with that suspension lift, but the problems were generally much easier/cheaper to deal with, such as just moving an earth strap from one bolt to another, or drilling more holes for the oil cooler pipes and rad mounting brakets, making an extendion for the high/low leavcer out of a bolt and a couple of nust welded together, etc. compared to the suspension lift were correcting castor angles can cost £££ and then £££ more to cure vibrations from changing propshaft UJ angles. My steering linkage had enough adjustment as standard to allow a 40mm body lift. IIRC a friend had 3" body lift with standard steering linkages.
