    front TJ spacer lift



    I just got my spacers delivered today off Ebay! 25 bucks plus shipping NEW!

    I got a pair of "true"!! 2 1/4 inch plastic spacers to lift my sagging front end springs.... 1998 4.0 litre.... the rear had 7 inches clearance...the front was a whopping 3 anyways.........

    The install was easy...only 130,000kms on the rig... and wow!
    But the fricken front end now is higher than the rears maybe by 1/4-1/2 inch... the rears are now sitting at 6...and the fronts at 6+...not what I intended at all... I guess the weight transfered to the back now?...whatcha think?

    Maybe watch for a full set of springs to go up for sale, would be the best way to get everything level again.

    Buy a winch/numper for the front. Sure way to get your nose down

    I'll follow along and x3 on that bumper... Mine is nose down and that was after I tossed in a pair of 3/4" spacers in my front to try to pick it up again.

    ^ It would be possible, but he should put on the accessories that he will ecentually be adding anyway before trying to play around with adding/removing spacers.

    After I installed my 3.5" RE SF kit, my nose was low (with a winch). Installed 3/4" spacers and it sits level again.

    ^ yeah but im just saying this incase he cant afford the winch and bumper and such right now, he could spend the $30-40 on the stock isolators for now
