Just bought a Wagoneer, have a few questions.

Hi i have owned a few lifted XJ's but this is my first lifted Wagoneer. So i have a few questions which are probably a no brainer for you experienced guys.

First is how many springs are stock in the front and rear spring packs? And how can you tell if they are stock spring packs or lifted ones. My Wagoneer is sitting on 36" Swampers and does not rub at all. I have no binding issues or anything in the front end. But my front is sagging compared to the rear, like at least 2 inches lower than the rear. I think they just added add-a-leafs. also one of my front springs is sagging more than the other and it looks totally different than the other one. I can supply pics for anyone that might can help.

I love it but just want to get the front even with the rear.

First, I will say welcome to our Disease! As for the springs... if you are tucking 36s my guess is it is probly not stock springs. Add-A-Leafs though possible and common just wont fix a bad spring. If u want stock check out Team Grand Wagoneer. If u wanna step it up BJs offroad has some very nice All Spring lifts, but that is entirely up to you. To get very accurate id really have to look at a pic or something. Rolling 36" rubber is no light task. Usually the vehicles doing that are set up with drop pitman arms(to prevent binding) and brake hose extensions, but at the end of the day W/O seeing it I cant make a proper judgement just a guess. Either way I hope I helped a little in my rant and happy (level)motoring

I am way to sober to be working like this!



Dont underestimate the other guy he may be pulling you out later!

Pics are always helpful. Is your front axle currently SUA or SOA?
