Saggie Skyjacker Springs

I put a 4" skyjacker lift on 2 years ago... my jeep doesn't see alot of abuse but 1 or 2 times a year. The rear springs are already starting to sit lower than the front...any suggestions? Has anyone else seen this?

Have you contacted SkyJacker yet ?
Ask them about it and what they can do to help.

Skyjacker springs are famous for doing that
I like the BDS better, and they have a no questions asked guarantee, if you are not satisfied, under ANY circunstances, they will replace them. Yes even if they sag LOL

I live in one of the cities where they make skyjacker springs!!

One of my good friends Skyjacker kit sagged from day one so don't feel bad. BDS just made up a set of springs for me the other day. I haul a lot of weight with my work so I know while the sagged they said there springs would hold the 3 tons of payload I sometimes carry in my Ford and it did for about 3 years. I have bought four kits from them since they recently opened a few years back.

That is why I decided to buy the 4WD Hardware (BDS) kit. I didn't want to worry about the springs sagging. I've done quiet a bit of reading and decided that you can't have your cake and eat it to. You either get a less expensive lift that will ride stiff but probably won't ever sag, or you spend a little more and get a better ride that articulates better for rock climbing but chance loosing and inch or two over time (faster if you add heavier bumpers, winch, hard top, etc.).

My ride is rough, but I'm sure it will loosen up a little after time. Also, I plan on better shocks in the not to distant future too. I may go with the Rancho 9000's.
