Measure every coil under the vehicles weight. Stock coils are 12" front and 8" rear. And I'm not sure about the correct side coils, I didn't have to do that. But I don't think one would be longer, I think it would just have a higher spring rate. So if you're just measuring the coil out of the vehicle, that may be the problem.

But I've had this lift in my jeep over two years with no lean..this is new. Why would it start now? I assumed one sagged so I replaced it, but the problem still exists.

Well then it could be something more. What shape are your control arms in? You didn't wreck it, or smack down on one side wheeling or anything?
Edit: take out ALL of your shocks. See if its level.

I replaced my control arms and shocks with the lift. I haven't even drove it in a year so no damage as been done from wheeling. This started since my jeep has been parked for the year while I was at school. So nothing can be damaged like that, it wasn't like this when I was driving it. It's soo frustrating

On the front axle spring buckets their are these specials keys that the springs sit in. Make sure your spring are keyed in them correctly. I had the same problem when I first put my lift in. The spring will sit about a half inch higher if it isn't seated correctly in the bucket.

I'd still take the shocks out and see. It could be a dead shock.

Ya I thought about that too, but the lift has been in for over two years and this is new, so the springs are sitting correctly. Plus, it's more than a half inch difference

Well I took the shock out of the passenger side when putting the spring in and it seemed like it was in good shape to me

So like I said not really a fan of the new seat covers because way they fit and the some grey parts of the seat are exposed. These will just have to last me a little while until i can afford a better pair. I guess it's better than my faded red/pink ones.

Also, painted my ring around my windshield lights red, painted my sway bar links from gold to black and paintd half my faded hi lift black. Much better

Cel came on, jeep drives awful. Sputters, bucks, backfires, high idle, horrible gas.

Tps code reads, replaced tps, problem not resolved at all, cel never even went away even after unplugging battery.

Searched several forums and found it could be clockspring, horn relay, bad wires...unplugged clockspring, cel till there and it ran th same. Same with taking horn relay out. I started to measure the voltage of the tps wires but I wasn't sure what I was doing, I followed other members advice but it was getting dark and pretty much the only thing I got to was about a 5.12 volt read from the middle tps wire..key in the on position...so that means the sensor is getting power?..

Anyway, I don't know where to look next. My o2 sensor was changed about a yer and a half ago, same with the fuel pump but it doesn't stall on me so I don't the itsnth fuel pump anyway. I don't know where to look next and im incredibly frustrated.

Any help would be great.

been a while. busy with work and school and moving. Pretty much the only thing I've done recently is pretty much replaced most of my front axle. New hubs, new ball joints, u joints. Had to do it all for inspection. Also, upgraded to 35s I bought a set of 3 a few months ago then ordered one brand new one online. Then after mounting them I found a set of 2 brand new ones for 200 bucks. So right now I have 1 new tire installed and 3 used with no spare but next weekend I'm gonna replace two of the used ones with the other two new ones I bought and mount a spare. The jeep does not drive much different from 33's to be honest..not as dramatic as people express around here..I think when I get the 2 new ones on I'm going to have them put the white letters out this time

Are you still running the 4:10 gears with the D-35 on those 35's? I bought some 4:88's but they are collecting dust until I can afford the install. How is the braking with the 35's and are they 35x12.50?
