I think my Badlands with Sasquatch will be fine and doesn’t need any lifting - But to each their own!

I'll wait for the SAS Bilstiens to go bad then replace them with FOX Live valve coilovers.

@Broncola I'm in blend date of 6/30 but in Utah. So the level will probably be here before the bronco. I'm planning to level and put 34s on the BB on day 1.

Please just stop with the cheap lifts people, they ruin your suspension and cause damage, not just by going offroad but something as simple as going on a lift for service.
I'll admit I'm inexperienced in the world of suspension lifts. But how is a 1-2" level spacer system going to harm the suspension? I've seen numerous experts here and elsewhere say that a lift under 3" would be ok.

It causes balljoints to take damage because of increased angles, it causes upper control arms to hit the coilsprings, it causes a worse driving experience. All for very minimal savings. Just drop the couple hundred dollars to do it right

1" is no issue at all. 2" is barely concerning even off road. In the end, any affordable lift technically hinders some aspect of suspension performance. I'd run a 1" and not blink an eye.

This is more in line with what I have read. It may mean a *little* less travel, but 1-2 isn't going to affect the upper control arms etc. like some have said.

What @Raptor.Tremor.Bronco said is true, but the non-squatch/BL Broncos are the exception to the rule. The control arms are designed to run at Sasquatch height. Beyond that, proceed at your own risk.

You will compromise a little down travel. Stiffer springs or "coilovers" net the exact same result and drawbacks and add more preload making the initial compression movement of the spring stiffer. Everything is a compromise..

Thank you. This is what I've read here and elsewhere. I have a BB so I would qualify as "non-Sasquatch."

Personally, I think 2" would look a little choppered out on a BB. Would be nice if they posted side pics on level ground.
