Leo_Allesch Posted March 19, 2021 Share Posted March 19, 2021 I am in the researching stage for figuring out this whole lift situation, and I'd like to purchase everything in the next week or so. My plan is to get about a two inch lift all around and fit 32 inch tires. Here's what I have so far. - 2 inch AC Coils in the front from 4x4 - NRC 9949 or 9447 rear Land Rover Coils (Would love to hear opinions on what the better option here is) - Bilstein 33-185552 (To my understanding these should not require extending brake lines, diff breathers, and bump stops) - Struts???? Here's where I have questions I believe that if you lift in the front with AC coils and upgrade to KYB struts you will experience topping out. The only solutions to this that I have seen are to buy the expensive OME front struts or adding limiting straps. Is topping out so bad that it's worth spending the extra money to buy the better struts, or are limit straps a safe a reliable option for fixing the problem. I have also seen something posts around here about strut mounts, and oem bearings, so I need to learn more about that. Next, with the 33-185552, one of the bushings won't fit a 98 mount, so I would I have to replace it with a smaller 12 mm one. Is this just as simple as pressing out the bushing and putting in a 12mm? I saw a post about coil compressors, and they said not to use standard compressors, and to use this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DP2CDJU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_S2gXDbGPWBH66. Is this the best option, or is it not necessary (and what is the best option). This is going to be my real first ever car project so I was wondering if there are any recommendations or videos/pictures to guide me through it all.
