I remember when I bought my ’08 JKUR new and installed a front bumper and warn PowerPlant the front end sagged miserably before the lift was installed. I hadn’t measured before the install so could only guess to the size of front spacers needed to correct things. Well I guessed wrong (not tall enough) and lived with a bad front sag (too lazy to re-do it) until I finally put in the lift.
Jeep spring weights vary and of course so does the extra weight you add with bumpers and winches, so what may work with one person’s Jeep might not work with yours. Measure first and install once.
Another option for you would be to buy a couple of different sizes of spacers and take them with you to your uncle’s school. That way if need be you’ll have the right spacer on hand if the first one you put in doesn’t do the trick. Afterwards just return the other spacers and get your money back.
