help me indentify my lift

Previous owner did not know what height the spring lift is on the jeep.

The leaf springs say rough country on them, and the fronts have number 6008 and rear leaf springs say 2108 stickers on them are faded out.

it has 2" lift shackles (8" hole to hole)

and it has a 1-1.5" body lift.

35x12.5 tires.

below is a picture.

I mean, if you want to take the time-
take the bumper height of your Jeep,
subtract the stock bumper height,
subtract the lift from tires,
shackles,
and body spacers,
and the number you have left will tell you what your springs are pushing (post sag of course)

Using the above formula will work but do not subtract body spacer height. A body lift doesn't effect bumber height.

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

Happens to the best of us. If your using rocker height instead of bumper height you would need to account for the body lift though.

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

35x12.5 tires.
stock shackles are 6" hole to hole...your shackles, being 2" longer, will give 1" of lift

haha, we're all messed up!

I gotta say, 8" is some serious shackles.
brianfulcher15- I know you said 8 hole to hole,
but what's your total length on those? 10"?
curious if the holes were closer to the edge because of that length or not,
sorry to tread off topic,
just a quick question,
I won't dwell on the subject.
