The two or the three will put your axles in a bind... Save the money and do it right with a true Lift and axles to go with it......

Has anyone had problems with the rubberdown lift kit? I am wondering if the axles would rub on the main frame and is there enough room for the piggy back shocks so they would clear the tires

I did with mine. Running Bilstein steel bodys my front passenger axle was hitting on the frame at full droop, and my passenger rear axle was rubbing on the lower shock bolt. It was not bad but I didn't like it. Also if you run long distances of 35MPH and up the CV's will build alot of heat.

Rubberdown is the most solid 2" lift I have seen though. There will be no issues with slipping or breaking.


Here are pics of where it was rubbing.

Front





Rear

2" Lift to much

I Tried my luck at building my own lift kit. Going 2 inches causes problems on both ends. The control arms are symetrical but the Diff on the rear is offset to the driver side making the right axle hit the frame at full drupe.
my reason for lifting was to be able to open my doors while on the trailer.
Weak reason for sure, but a good project for a vacation. I raised the front 2" and the rear a little over an inch. Sits level and the doors clear the trailer by an 1-1/2". Are the left and right axles the same length?
