What the heck is a leveling lift?

Hi Guys:

I saw this in a thread I was reading. Is it a lift kit less than 2 inches?

A stock TJ has a slight rake, meaning the rear is a tad higher than the front.

A leveling kit (usually just a pair of spring spacers for the front) raises the front up to make it sit level.

What is a leveling kit? A waste of money. TJs have a rake for reason. Leveling an empty jeep does silly things.

The towing capacity of a TJ is pretty low, if you need air bags you may be overloaded.

They are a good option if you tow regularly.
