I remember someone commenting on how much lift would be needed to run 33's on a CJ5 not too long ago. I commented that mine was running 33's with no lift that I could tell unless it was all in the springs which I knew nothing about having just picked the Jeep up a couple weeks earlier.
Update: I'm to the point where I want to replace my bushings and even go with 2.5" springs. After digging deeper, my front end has 9 leaf spring packs and the rear has 7 leaf packs. The front still has the OEM shackles but the rear has god awful long shackles. Is this an aftermarket lift that the PO installed? I want to keep 33's on it but I'm afraid new 2.5" springs may actually lower the Jeep from how it sits now, especially if I replace the rear shackles with OEM or similar.
Here's a picture from when I first picked it up. Can anyone help me out by letting me know if you think this thing is already lifted? Also, the steering wheel is exactly 180 degree off (upside down) which leads me to believe a lift has been installed but no steering adjustments etc.
