1/4" front and 1/2" rear spacer

Hello, all!

I am thinking about getting a 2" rc lift and adding a 1/2" spacer in the front and 1/4" spacer in the back. Does anyone know where I can get these and has anyone done this before?

Also, is there a spacer I could add to the front as well as the back? Like the same spacer for each end?

I thought you were going to play the guinea pig and get the 3 inch top gun customs lift?



Or are you just really confused and don't know what you want?

After speaking to a rough country rep I found out that there is no difference in the rear spacer and the top gun is only .4" bigger in the front... the rc is the safer bet with the life time warranty and all. But I also saw on here some people adding leveling spacers in the front and back but it was so long ago I don't even think they're active on the forum so I figured I would throw it out there

I'd suggest just getting the Rough Country lift - it's cheap enough and it's very proven and tested.

Have you ever seen an XK with the 2 inch Rough Country Lift installed live and in person?

Levelling spacers? RC lift will level the vehicle.

You can use RoR strut plates in the front or stack isolators in the rear if you want to do small tweaks to ride height. I've done both of these things.

Yeah leveling spacers. I know the rc levels it but I'm not looking to use them to level it, just to provide extra lift. I'm looking for ones that I can use in front and back and get the same amount of lift.


What do u run?

What are you running lucky?

I'm running just the straight 2 inch RC Lift with Bilstein 4600 Shock Absorbers in the front, Bilstein 5100's in the rear and new Hemi-Rated rear coil springs.

JBA makes this strut spacer plate

WK/XK Strut spacer plate set

I by no means should be considered a reliable source on the matter but it seems like it could sit on top of the RC spacers up front.
