Rough country suspension add-a-leaf

Hi all

I have a 95 wrangler with 4” suspension lift and 3” body lift, all from rough country. 35/12.50/15 wheels with 2.5 motor.

My problem is that when I am offroading, I tend to cause the rear tires rub on the body and at some point, I am sure the tires will be ruined.

I can’t afford to get 6” or 8” lift right now, so I am was thinking of getting the SUSPENSION ADD-A-LEAF from rough country, but I am not sure if this recommended by the experts or is there any gotchas that I need to be aware of.

Buy a set of Daystar poly extended bump stops from Quadratec... I had the same problem. Got sick of slicing my rear tires....

you are absolutely correct sir, because and as a matter fact, I don't have any bump stops at all, which explains the problem I am having.

I'll go ahead and get the ones you recommened and post later to let you know how it went.

Thanks a lot.

+1, you need bump stops. Going with 6" lift spring will NOT STOP YOUR TIRES FROM RUBBING. You can still flex the springs into a flat shape. As a matter of fact, with the right bump stops you could go down to a 2.5" lift spring and still run 35's with that body lift. I doubt that you will even need extended bump stops with a 3" BL. Just get some bump stops period. Bottom out your suspension to find out how much you need to limit it. Then get the proper bump stops. Going too long will limit your flex, but going too short will allow the tires to hit the body.
