Add-A-leaf help

Hello again after a few short jeepless months, I now am a proud owner of a mint one owner ( old lady ) 99 cherokee and plan on installing a 2" lift. I plan on an aal in the rear but my stock springs are alittle saggy and wanted to know if I should get a 3" lift aal to compensate for the old springs or would a 2" lift spring be fine? Thanks

P.S. I want to get a long leaf not a short one.

AAL is probably not a great fix for saggy leaves.

What is your desired ride height? What is your current ride height? Desired - Current = X where X is the lift you need. Chris is right though - if your springs are truly saggy (like, they sit flat with your vehicle not loaded to the brim with gear) then an AAL will only provide you a temporary solution. A whole new leaf pack isn't terribly expensive and will provide 1) A longer lasting result 2) A more predictably flexy spring 3) A overall better feel for many many more miles.

Aals won't fix sag. You're better off just getting new ones. It'll save you money in the long run.

Just to update, I got a good deal on stock spring packs so I just put my aal lift on them then installed it on the jeep. Rode pretty high in the rear for a few weeks but settled down to a good height. Happy with the results, thanks, now only if I can fix the 50mph shaking......

Take a look at the tires, see if one has a bunch of weights on it. That rim probably bent. Good chance, you know how little old ladies drive....
