Looks good! Looks like it sits fairly level, with a slight rake? When you say you used an 8 mm spacer up front, you're talking wheel spacer right?

I'll be installing the 5100 series shocks and struts, along with OME HD springs soon... (parts just arrived today, YAY) I've had the ARB bull bar on my jeep with stock suspension for about 3 years and it seems to be sagging even more than it was before, this will finally get it back to the right stance!!

I went with:
24-225793 for the front
35-151632 for the rear

I'm assuming that the .75" lift up front will nicely make up for the weight of the bull bar, so the slightly nose down stance can be re-established

Current mods: ARB Winch Bumper, TABOR 9K Winch, OME HD, Bilstein 5100 front and back, AEV JK Pintlers w/P265/70/17 GY Wrangler Silent Armor
Pending upgrades: pinch weld?

So if I'm reading this correct. I can put bilstein shocks and struts on my 05 WK and it will lift it? Wouldn't need spacers or any other components to raise the vehicle? At what cost?

You'll need spacers for the rear.

Thanks.

Will the Bilsteins work with the air bags in the rear?
