How much lift do I have?

Just bought a jeep today! 50k miles 1 owner sahara, been looking for awhile and while I'm not big into the chrome that can be changed! Here are some pics of the jeep... the transfer case is dropped so that leads me to believe its 3 inches or so.. has 30" tires. I am also wanting to lift the rear a bit more to level it out since its sagging a bit, but before that I'd really like to know how much lift I have prior...Thanks

Front springs 12"/rear 8". Anything over is a lift or measure the width of any spacers on top of the springs (BB).

The speedometer is 10mph over so I think they had 32s or 33s on it at some point.

The front axle side track bar mount looks to be re-drilled, look here for information on that: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/br...racket-905624/

Those control arms look like early TeraFlex arms and are only good for tearing the control arm mounts off of the axle and frame... HTH

I was looking at quadratec and found this 3" suspension lift...pretty sure thats what I've got!: http://www.quadratec.com/products/16110_012.htm I guess the PO just also put extended rear arms on the jeep...Does this mean I could add a 1 inch spacer to the rear to match the 1" spacer on the front safely? I want to say within the proper geometry of my suspension...Thanks!

I don't see a 1" spacer on the front?

What I posted is saying that you need to replace the aftermarket control arms with something that actually works...

Ok so I guess those are just dampeners like on my old ranger's dana 35 coil springs...
