I recently put the J spring lift on my 80. I can't stand the extreme stinkbug and would like to add a 1.5-2" spacer to the front. My question is what additional issues, if any, does this bring up as far as possible new parts i would need and/or adjustments that will need to be made for everything to function properly. i will be ordering slee castor correction plates this week.

I never intend to load my 80 down with much weight in the rear so I am not worried about the rear sagging as some people are concerned with.

I did search this topic but couldnt find the exact answer.

Thanks

The main issue will be the impact on caster. Recall the higher you lift the more correction you will need. I would suggest getting a caster reading before ordering any CC parts to determine which CC method is most suited for you.

if you don't need the load capability in the back or the lift height that badly, and if mostly the stinkbug that bugs you, you could also use a lower lift (shorter spring or less rate) in the back. Would keep your life simpler.
