    Nope, but you will need an alignment.

    Actually, if your shocks are old you might want to replace them, but most shocks can handle the 2 more inches of travel.

    Do you plan to use it much offroad? Do you disconnect the front sway bar while wheeling? If yes, you will need longer shocks and extended brakelines. You will also need an alignment. I put my skyjacker 2" lift on 2 months ago and I also put on new Rancho 5000 shocks and pro comp extended braided stainless steel brake lines. I havent had an alignment yet but I need to. My steering is awful and the camber needs to be adjusted. 31" tires would probably be the max with just the lift.

    Been down this road myself.

    You will need the 2 degree camber bushings.

    Depending on the type/brand shock you have you may need longer ones or extensions...

    Serious extension will break brake lines.... Nursed home on a leaking one.

    My .02, save your money and do a 5.5. In the long run you'll be much happier..

    Brakelines... i suppose check how much play ya got once ya get the lift on... if yer only onroad with that lift, then no, ya wont need new lines... if you go wheelin, just be careful... i wheeled with 4in of skyjacker lift (class II lift) w/ the stock lines and was fine... It's another one of those "depends on the vehicle things"

    All you should need is an alignment, cause you don't get axle drop brackets so your tires will look like \ / after you put the new springs in.
