Leveling out my tj.....

I have an 01 jeep wrangler sahara edition. She has a 4" rough country suspension lift and a 3" body lift. She is sagging in the front and im looking to pick it up but I really like the cali lean (A little higher in the front). So im looking to put spacers in the front. I really want to do 2" spacers but I also have a set of 1" spacers in hand. Really my question is what all is necessary to make the 2" work and not cause "death wobble".
Thanks for the help, Andrew

So you want to create a 6" total short-arm supension lift up front coupled with a 3" body lift?

hmmm....

I wasn't really looking for opinion just looking for what would need to be done for it to work. Not an everyday driver just mudding.

4" lift, soon to be 6" in the front and a 3" body lift. On 31's... Awesome

To answer your question. Just add all the spacers you want, where you want. It wont create DW.

Sorry then: Yes, you can surely wedge the 2" spacers in there up front but it'll likely ride like a grain cart.

3/4" or 1" spacer's would likely give you back your stance. As you lift the front, it'll slightly offset weight to the rear, so 1" spacers make up more than 1" of the difference when it's all said and done.
