Just installed 5.5" RE long arm kit
Just a quick question....I just installed a RE 5.5" lift and I have noticed that the front sits lower then the rear. I do not have additional weight such as a winch or rear tire carrier yet. I will be installing a homemade tire carrier this weekend and it is pretty heavy, but I do not know if it will level out the suspension yet. My question is: is it common for my rear to sit higher? would the front regain some height once I dial in my axles?

The Jeep has a natural rake to it. The rear sits higher stock. This is so that when you load the rear down with gear/equipment the *** end doesn't sit lower.
After my 4.5 LA kit was installed, I thought it was lower in the front too, but then upon further investigation, I discovered it was an optical illusion created by the fender flares. The rear flares are bolted to the jeep in a *slightly* higher location than the fronts, giving it that sloped front look. Although there are cases where the front of a jeep really does sit lower than the back, most the time, IMO, I think its just an optical illusion.
