The Rear of my ZJ is Higher then the Front 2'' ?

I had asked in another Thread what the Curb Height was Front and Rear on a ZJ as Mine looks a lot higher in the Rear then in the Front?
I measured the Rear ---->
Center of Axle to the Top of the Wheel Well = 20''
Front ----->
Front Center of Axle to Top of Wheel Well = 18''
I was told 18'' is stock all around so I'm guessing someone added heavier springs in the Rear ?
There are no Spacer Blocks on the Jeep at all.
Would just adding 2'' Spacers on the Front even the Truck up ?
I'll post a Photo of My ZJ later on today.

Mine was similar . I added UC spring to get it back level but , in your case , a 2" BB should work . Doesn't look like a 2" difference . Just the BB , no stock isolator . A little rake is ok .

I figure UC = Up Country - Are you saying add that on the Front ? And BB = Budget Boost ?


Actually it doesn't look too bad in the driveway but I measured it while it was in the Garage and its completely flat.
I can check it again tomorrow as I may have measured it right after it came down from a Jack in the rear.
I don't think I bounced it at all to make sure it settles itself after dropping it.

you can use any size coil spacer to make it look any way you want. It only looks slightly higher in the back. maybe post another pic from farther away on a flat surface?

You're correct about UC .

Just suggesting remove the stock isolator , install a 2" BB on the front , get some UC shocks all around because they better suit the measured height , done .

Ok I backed into the Garage and bounced on it in the back and rocked it a bit to make sure it was at rest.
Using a tape measure it shows almost 20" from Center of the Axle to top of Fender well in the back.
The front was 18" center axle to top of fender well.
Any ideas ?

a little rake is normal. if it bugs you, stick spacers in the front. PO mightve installed different, more heavy duty springs in the back if he/she was carrying heavy loads or towing with it

or throw 100lbs worth of rocks in the back to lower it down.
