Batty says...i need lift!

Alright ya'll...I want to lift my front end to match the the height of my rear end on my 2013 2 door sport. I'm guessing 2 inches...not sure? Is it as simple as putting spacers on top of the coils without any issues of alignment and or shocks? Thanx in advance....Jeff

Yes, though it's likely less than two inches. It can be as simple as a coil spring spacer, or as involved as a full budget boost/leveling lift kit with shocks, trackbars and a few other parts.

I'd try the coil spacers first. Measure your jeep at the bottom of the body, behind the front fender flare, and in front of the rear flare, at the pinch seam.

What is your current set up, and what do you plan to change and or add, if anything?

You have options. This leveling kit is one.

I think this is about as low $$ as you're going to get unless you went with just spacers.

I put the front of the teraflex leveing kit on last night. 2" in the front. I haven't put the 1" on the rear yet. With just the front spacers in it still has a slight rake to it. Not sure I'm gonna do the rear.
