Watch a modified rig when it rolls beside your stock truck. What do you notice? In most cases, these rigs have a more aggressive stance because of the aftermarket bumpers, mud tires, wider and deeper rims, and lifted suspension. Of course, there are also modifications beyond what your eyes can see at that instant. But let's focus on modifying the rig's stock height. Lifting your rig is a common practice among off-roaders. It improves ground clearance, allows you to fit bigger tires, and can possibly improve your rig's stance. While we are more partial to coil spring lift kits, we decided to try the ARB coil spring spacer together with the stock suspension of our Jeep Wrangler.
- 10mm additional lift
- Tuned and matched for optimum comfort, load carrying capability, and control
- Tested and modified in different combinations of terrain and loads
- Applicable to Jeep models
- 2 years warranty
- Installing the ARB coil spring spacers was just as easy as installing new coil springs. We put the rig on a lifter then proceeded with removing the wheels then dismantling the coil springs. When these parts were cleared, we proceeded with mounting the spacers. We've spent about two hours mounting the spacers on the Jeep. It's actually not bad.
- We thought it's really a practical way to add height if you just want to bump your rig up a little and clear some space for bigger rubber. But if you want monster tires, then you need more than just this spacer to make it work.
- We drove the Jeep out with the newly installed spacers. We felt no difference with the ride and action. This could be a good thing for people wanting to preserve the stock performance of the Jeep as much as possible. However, this is not the suspension upgrade for people wanting to improve the ride of their Jeeps.
- A spacer is what it is - a block that provides extra height. It has no other function beyond that. We thought that this is more of an aesthetic upgrade than a performance upgrade.
The ARB coil spring spacer is a practical solution that can address your rig's height issues. It offers you versatility in mixing and matching suspension components. Likewise, it gives you a fixed lift since it doesn't compress. However, keep in mind that a spacer is a rigid component. Despite the additional height, it will offer ride and performance improvements that you can expect from aftermarket coil springs.
