Very confused as to how a control arm bushing effects height for a spring
, maybe this can be better explained cause , I wanna hear it !
That don't mean they are good , I replace them all the time on any ZJ I buy . I just don't see what this has to do with height .
If you were parked on level ground doing those measurements , you have a weak sagged spring . 18" fender to hub is the stock starting point except UC which can be over 1" more , suppose to be 19" . Double check your measurement in different parking spaces
Cheap fix , toss a 1" spacer on the spring .
Best fix , replace springs with new
For a no boaty feeling replace the sway bar frame bushings minimum ever 2 years , front and rear . IMO , it's the most abused bushing on the whole jeep . If you really want it gone , buy a rear Adcco sway bar
