    Now I know spacer lifts aren't great, but it's all I can afford. I'm putting crd front springs and new shocks in the front. What is the best spacer lift for crd springs. Something that will not super wear parts. I was thinking the daystar 1.5 inch to keep wear down.

    Save your money please, you are not going to like the results nor the extra you will pay in replacing parts down the road even with using CRD springs
    Just save up for a couple of months and do it right the first time

    That's the only problem, I cant justify spending 1000 on doing it the "right way" nor can I save that kinda money anytime soon. Just wanted a little lift to last 2 years max. I'm well aware it's not the best but I feel with the crd springs a spacer lift should last longer, especially a small one.

    LMAO !! there is that 1000 dollar remark again, wish I knew where that came from..............
    now IF you do the JBA UCAs at the same time then yes 1000 bucks, but I have done several that even with my labor and alignment was under a 1000

    A lift to last two years is a full spring lift, spacer lift even with brand new CRD springs will not last that long unless it just sits in the driveway

    In 2005 I found a one year old ARB bumper for 250 bucks , it was for sale since the owner had built a KJ for his son, after busted front shocks, UCAs and other front end parts he said you could not lift a KJ and returned it to stock. I bought the ARB, lifted mine and finally sold the ARB about 10 years later

    The Teraflex spacer lift I got still needed corrected control arms for a usable alignment. Factor that into the budget if you go that route.
