Blocks in back and pucks up front. $100, +2" increase, better looking, more functional and way less half-assed than a body lift.I've got a 1991 Bronco which is bone stock and I want to know if there is a way to give it a modest lift without having to replace the stock shocks and suspension parts. (Modest = 1 to 3 inches)?
I'd take coil spacers over a body lift any day. Inch for inch they're better than a body lift until you get into stupid and unsafe sizes, at which point the body lift has the advantage because you can at least drive it to the mall as long as there aren't any speed bumps.There is nothing half ass about a body lift when done right. If its going to be a street rig blocks are fine for the rear. I would still stay away from the coil spacers for the front though. You also have the option of an add a leaf for the rear that would be better than blocks.
You're gonna have to be a bit more clean about "ruin your suspension" because I've done just that and had zero problems. I've had 0, 2 and 4.5 blocks out back and 0 and 2 up front. I've had stock and junkyard coils and re-configured my leaf pack more times than I can count. The only problem I ever had in front was with a nut backing off a shock absorber and the coil bucket turning the stem into a J. Out back I had one U-bolt come loose enough to rattle one time after changing up the leaf pack. Since then I re-torque everything a few times after install so I think that may why I've not had problems so far.if your going to go wheeling or do a lot of dirt driving do not go an put spacers on u will regret the moment u put them on they ruin your suspension, do it the right way spend the money go with a 6 inch fox lift it will give u the clearance and they are a very nice ride body spacers in my opinion is ugly and pointless, just don't do it cheap a 1 inch lift is not going to change the look of your ride a lift like that you will only notice if a pull out a tape measure,
just get a nice suspension lift im sure your shocks and struts at this point are ready to be replaced to begin with,
