So i have a 3.5" lifted '96 XJ on 31" tires with no added body armor/major sources of weight. I put this lift on about 3 years ago and recently the front passenger is starting to sag causing it to be off-level across the hood. I have read a ton of posts and still am not clear. I need it to be .5" higher on the passenger front. I have an add a leaf kit in the back (with 4 leafs- i have seen some people ask in other posts if it matters) & Rancho 5000's in the front with Rusty's 3.5" lift coils (I didn't know any better at 16- i get it now
Measurements: I measured between the e's in Jeep (the middle of the wheel) on stock rims to the bottom of the fender flare- uncut/unmolested
Basically i am wanting to get this back to level and i don't know if i can just add a .5" spacer to one side (Being suspension this seemed unlikely) OR if i need new coil springs OR if the source of my problem is just a bad shock.
- I have checked all of the parts in question & none are visibly damaged. No spring spacers at all so far so nothing got shifted/moved. The shocks "feel" even when adding my roommates body weight to either side and measuring travel (~2-3's depending on if he sat or i tossed him onto the hood- appx 175lbs). I was measuring travel from the bottom of the respective side of the plastic bumper cap to the pavement. That to me pointed to the coil but the "Honda Expert" roommate swears its the shock. Help!?! Much appreciated
