New jeep lift help??

Hey guys I just sold my 97 4 banger and bought a 6 cyl Sahara and it is supposed to have a 4" lift just like my old tj but it looks and feels a lot shorter. This jeep has 33"s where mine had 35s but it shouldnt make that much of a difference. My ?s are 1. How can I tell if it was a 4" lift and 2. Can I just put new 4" springs under it to pick it up? It has a drop pitman arm and extended sway bar links so any help is greatly appreciated......

Post pics.If it has a drop pitman arm,most likely it's a 4" lift.If it doesn't have an adjustable track bar with a frame side drop also,remove the drop pitman arm and go back to stock.You can just replace the 4" springs IF it has a 4" lift.

My old 05' when it had a 4" lift and 33's.

some springs sag and arn't as big as other companys, the lift in your new jeep can be a different company if it has a drop pitman arm its most likley a 4 inch as said above throw some different springs in and you should be fine!

Ok let me try to figure out how to add photos from a iPhone and I'm 99% sure it's got a drop pitman arm and I know it's got a tcase drop
