It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Garage
Hey man sorry I'm just not getting my new measurements up. I didn't get garage time until this moment.

It looks like I'm still sitting right at 20.75" all around with a little over 3/4 of a tank of gas. Actually, my rear drivers side seems to be even a touch over that. So in almost 6 months, I have lost no lift due to settling isolators settling in, spring fatigue, etc.

I had forgotten you were using just the B springs. I'm curious to see what you get!

So, FINALLY I get the OME springs on. Took forever!!! (In both senses, took like 6 or so hours, due to breaking tools and loosing bolts! )

Lift Height: My measurements as of now are 20.5 front and 20.0 rear (Rear has 3/4 gas, subs, two jack stands, floor jack (holy crap that weighs alot) and misc parts which I think that accounts for the 0.5 amount of loss of lift rear)

Shocks: The rear has about 2 inches of down travel, the front about an 1 inch. So I am going to look at Summit, online etc, and talk to Kolak and see what he has and also consider some parts from AlwaysHI! So I can feel them bottom out on the bigger bumps, again shocks will be addressed very very soon.

Spring Perches... As you will see below, they are TERRIBLE and on the one side, YIKESSSS... I am not happy and need some advice please.

Rear Sway bar: is NOT that bad due to it only being about 20 inches in the rear. When the new shocks go on, the 3/4 inch rear spacers are going back on.

That is a good idea! I dont have a welder, need to find someone who does and possibly learn how to weld. The top half of the one perch was gone but the bottom half was still pretty decent but, do not trust it.

FB me about the shocks. I am considering all options right now.

Look at pawn shops for a welder. My buddy picked up a Lincoln MIG for $50 the other day. And its always good to know how to weld so you can hire yourself out

my spring perch on the driver side is all rotted out as well but i got "lucky" and i still had one side holding the perch or nipple or whatever you wanna call it so i sprayed some rust preventer on there and wrapped it up with electrical tape ...kinda ghetto but it will pass until i can fix it ...hopefully
