    Rough country 3.5 inch lift
    Hi i have installed a 3.5 inch rough country lift and i know i should have spent a few more dollars and got a better set up but i am stuck with it.My question is i have 3.5 inch lift and the front is lower than the rear and i bought a 3/4 inch puck for the front coil and i am going to remove the original one will i get away with an adjustable track bar or do i need a drop down bracket? I am guessing the spacer is going to ad maybe another 1/2 inch if that.

    Some rake isn't a bad thing if you plan to haul any kind of load in the back.. friends, tools, gear..whatever.
    I know people like the level look over a slight rake but load the back down and you will be dragging ass.
    Just something to keep in mind.
    Adjustable trackbar should be fine though it may need some adjustment after the spacer install.

    You are absolutely right about a slight rake I just feel it might be a bit too much.I hope the spacer lifts it just slightly. Thank you for your help. Stay safe
