Height??? I think my springs are dead
So I bought this 74 CJ5 this weekend, it says it has a Rancho 3" lift. It has paperwork from a shop that says 3"... it was done in like 1990 though... anyway It has 33" tires and my front fende flair is only like 35" off the ground (measured at hub) my 33" tires are more like 32". Anyway, my rear is like 37.5" measured at the hub... does this seam low? My TJ with 4" and 33's seamed like it had about 6" between wheel and well.
i'll be honest but..i'm still pretty new to jeeps...on what i've read on previous treads, I would check the angle of the shackles. Normally the shackle angle should be like in the first picture. If they look like the second picture i would say that your springs are done..

My buddy has Rancho springs and his started sagging after something like 9 years and he called them and they replaced them under warranty. You might call them. He did this last year on his 56 (I think) CJ 5. Worth a shot at least.
