Confused about lift!!!
Alright about a month ago I bought a used TJ Sahara edition. When I bought it, it was already lifted and the previous owner was running 31 inch bfg a/t. When I asked him about the lift, he told me he had a 2.5 rough country lift put on. According to him, it rode too rough for his likings so he changed the rear shocks to blisten 5000 I believe, however I'm not completely sure. A few days after I bought it I noticed that it seemed to nose dive. I just measured it and the rear tires had three inches more clearance from the top of the fender to the tire. Is this normal? What would be the best way to level it without losing any high as to I would like it taller anyhow?
Well I just looked and neither set of shocks had any visible labeling from my view point. I do believe the front shocks are the originals that came with the kit and where metallic grey. The rear shocks were white and no I don't have a winch or aftermarket bumpers.
The front is lower than the rear from the factory. This is referred to as "rake". It is supposed to help with fuel economy and keeps the jeep from sagging in back when fully loaded. Most lift kits maintain this rake. The best way to level it out, if you feel so inclined, is with 3/4 inch spacers on the front coils.
