Looking at the wrong end of the clevis
To do a clevis lift you slid the shock up a little bit out of the clevis itself
in this picture you can see the conduit nuts that I installed for measurement , they don't hold anything just so both sides are the same

With a 3/8 inch inch top plate and a 1/4 inch clevis it will sit at 22 inches middle of wheel to bottom of flare
also the trim packers do not give you height in a way but increase spring rate which in turn will give you some height
with just the springs it should settle in to be a good 2 inch lift ( 21 middle of wheel to bottom of flare)
hope that helps some

Lol. Well, that explains a lot... yea, with engines I'm good, suspenSION (note correct spelling) not really my area of expertise.
Ok, so I could prolly go with the 5 or 10mm packers to achieve a level lift from this kit.

And you used the conduit nuts to space the strut upwards evenly then locked it down by tightening the bolt just blow those conduit nuts. Gotcha.

So Tom are the trim packers the same as the dreaded spacers in a Daystar kit? If I'm looking at your picks correctly it seems the trim packers are lower spring perches with a 10mm collar on the bottom which will compress the springs - thereby increasing the spring rate.

Thoughts?

Bob

Nothing like the Daystar
The piece that the springs sits on comes off
Now you slid the trim packers down over the shock
then slid the lower spring mount back down over the shock
I guess I should of taken a picture since I've answered this question everywhere
never thought about it

Once the springs are installed on the shocks you can not see the TPs

Did you put the ironman setup on YOUR jeep? I ask because of the whole lowered/prelowered thing.
my kj was built 06-02 so im assuming i suffered the wrath of the car&driver dip$#!* who couldn't drive.

which brings up another question.... im sitting at 18" in the front and 19" in the rear from wheel well to center of rim... is this bad?
i know my struts are shot and im guessing im sagging like an old tired dog...

When replacing springs it makes no difference if its an 02 or 07 all turn out the same height , springs were what they lowered
If you are at 18 then you have sagged about an inch and 3/4s , so I'm guessing the ride is not so good anymore

"Not so good anymore".... ROFL!!!!!!

I've had better rides in a shopping cart down a flight of stairs!

But seriously, I bottom out over everything.
Yea, I figured the sag was bad but wasn't sure where I was supposed to be sitting stock.

Again, thanks for everything tom!
