Second time XJ owner. First one was a 2wd Limited I bought in 2000. Kept it until 2010 and immediately regretted selling it. Picked up this 4wd Limited about a year ago off Craigslist. Has 208k miles and doesn't leak anything from anywhere..crazy, right?

Anyway, have a bunch of mods planned, but first thing that had to be done was suspension. Rear leafs were inverted on the passenger side and completely horizontal/almost inverted on the drivers side. Decided to do it up right and went with ARB's OME kit.

Extremely nice set up, but the leaf spring packs are very bent upwards. Rear sits about 2.5 inches higher than the front. Folks at 4Wheel Parts say this will settle over time and use.
