Boundless:
I didn't add any additional spacer in front, it sits pretty level without it, but I think that is due to the hardtop. I will be romoving the hardtop next weekend so i'll see how much it pops up in back then....I'm considering going with longer springs (3") but I'm happy with the coil spring spacers for now...

I like it, rides good, flexes good, absorbs the little bumps way better than stock. It sits lop sided by a half inch to the passenger side, gotta figure that out??


poser flex of a yota that was with us, 34 inch swampers and this guy would go anywhere.

Looks great and I am leaning toward this approach myself as well. So, for now, you're running the stock shocks with the lift? Did you do anything with the track bar to center the axles?

I am currently running the stock shocks, but will be upgrading soon. I didn't touch the track bar, the axle is sitting pretty dead on center. There are some adjustments I have to make such as the steering stops and it definitely needs an alignment which I will be getting this week.

I went out a snapped a few more photos:

Mine was the same way until it settled some more. Now it sits level all around.

I'm jealous of your 35" mtr's. I stuck with 33s for now because I wanted to build it up more before going 35s way later down the road. Up next (soon!), currie steering

the currie steering is great, i am not sure, but i think it is most of why the jeep drives better on the road. It feels like i get more feedback, or less wobble.



how long did it take for your currie springs to settle?

Probably 750 miles or so, which was about 2 weeks for me. I didn't do any measurements so I don't know how much it settled, but it looks like hardly anything at all. It sits level all around now.
