Is yj ome 2.5" installation correct?

So just picked up my YJ from the shop with a NEW OME 2.5 Suspension system installed but it seems that it's not level. The rear is higher than the front and I noticed that the're 4 leaves in the front and five leaves in the back.

Was this installed done correctly?

Thanks for your help.

Depends on what duty springs you have in the rear. Heavy duty springs with no or soft top will do that because they're meant for heavier loads, so unloaded they'll arch more. Load it down with a seat, some gear and a hard top and it will probably level out.

Mine may be slightly higher in the rear (heavy duty both ends) because there's much less weight back there. I loaded 4 transfer cases back there one day and it leveled out nicely not to mention the smooth ride!

If you run a soft top or no top with little/no gear in the back the rear will always be slightly higher.

Also, welcome to the forum! Please fill out your Jeep's profile

ditto. ^^^

I put heavy duty on all 4 corners and after adding a heavy winch bumper in front and a tire swing with a 35 in the back along with 2 jerry cans it leveled right out and rides great. more flex than I know what to do with.

Guess It's Right

Thanks for the replies. After further research I've determined it was done right. It's got CS014F in the front and CS036R in the rear. It'd seem that you'd want another leave up front with the weight of the engine.

The ride is great much better than the worn out stock that I had. Well worth the money.
