I should have checked here first before I did this...but here we are. I have a 2008 2WD Commander that I had previously installed the Daystar 2" lift. I just installed the Rough Country 2" lift on top of that. I have to say the new stance looks great but now the steering knuckle is hitting/rubbing the lower part of the strut. I've done some research on what to do to fix this but getting mixed info. Again, I should have came here first. Does anyone know if new upper control arms or adjustable ball joints will solve the problem? I need to be able to adjust the camber out a little. I don't want to have to take off the additional 2" lift. Any ideas or support would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You can't stack those lifts. If your over 23" without running a superlift drop bracket you'll wreck components.

take a measurement from center of axle to front fender lip.



You can try the JBA upper control arms. But they are not cheap.

Mine is 2WD. Are you referring to the center of the front hub to the top of the front fender lip?

Yeah AFAIK youll trash your steering rack eventually at that height, and your upper ball joints sooner rather than later. CVs arent a problem of course

Omelet @ jeepforum.com ran a stacked lift around 23.5" and had trouble with his steering rack/links IIRC.

JBA UCA should solve the upper ball joint issue. Not sure about the rack.

Thanks for the input. Also wanted to point out that this is not a daily driver and doesn't leave the pavement. Do you think just replacing the UCA ball joints would get me by for a while?
