I have at least 4” of lift on mine. If the ride is a little harsh, you can remove the front sway bar. It does help. I also have a subframe drop. Purchased from a local machine shop. 2” round stock, 1” high and a 5/8 hold in the center.

I would modify the above, you can remove the front sway bar *off road*. Removing it on road and then needing to do an unexpected evasive maneuver can cause a rollover.

Do you have the amazon link for the bushings?
