After searching Jeep Forum and Jeep Garage I'm still flustered. I will be installing my Rough Country lift within the next month, but I'm not sure whether to install the 58643 or the 58646 shocks. I have a 3.7, and will not be towing anything. The longer 58643 MLL's seem to add too much rake, and the 58646 seem to be the perfect length for me since they bring it back up to the OEM rake. Any input? I will be keeping the stock front struts if that matters. Everyone on this forum seems to be running the longer F-150 model MLL's, but alot of you also seem to have V8's, OME lifts, or tow things.
I installed the 58643's about a month ago and in my opinion I think it sits perfect. I wanted a little rake and it gives you the rake. Figure the 3's give you about an 1 1/2" of lift and the 6's give you 3/4" of lift in the rear. When you do buy if you havent alreadt go through amazon and get the "used" ones which you can get for around $50 or so and all it is is and open box situation. They are new just have been returned or the box got damaged or something.
If it aint dirty you aint doin it right
05' WK, OME HD lift w/bilsteins, hypertech
There's a thread around here somewhere that was started way back when we began using the Load Levelers with alot if measurements. Basically on a 2" lifted WK the stock MLLs will yield roughly .75" while the F-150 MLLs will give you close to 1.5".
If You're not sure which ones to get, measure the distance from the center of the wheel hub to the fender, then put a jack under your hitch and raise the back .75", then raise it another. 75" and see which you think looks better.
I've got the RC with longer MLL and honestly would like the rear to be even higher... If u go through pictures, the level look doesn't match the WK body lines or wheel wells. I think they should develop these lifts to keep a stock stance rather than level it out.
I have the RC lift with a 3.7 w/o longer LL but have them and plan on putting them on soon. I think the back looks a little lower than the front.
Go with the f-150 MLL and let them settle for a couple weeks. U won't be disappointed. If u still aren't feeling the rake all u hav to do is add a .25 spacer to the front if u want the level/saggy rear look, but I hav a feeling u will like it.
