Your Pass. Side also has the 16 which is a slightly taller coil spring.

I am also betting you had this same spacing before you added the spacers and the bumpstop extenders. You just didn't notice because you weren't working on the suspension.

Yes, I agree... it probably was this way I just never noticed it.

Thanks to duneslider I installed a set of Teraflex 2.5" springs up front and that fixed my problem. I now have about 2 inches of clearance at the front bumpstop and the Jeep rides smooth over bumps. I gained an additional 1" of height up front.

So the question is... I now have two new front Teraflex spacers for spare parts. Should I 1) cut them in half and add an additional 1" of height up front? 2) sell them? 3) play hockey?

Sell Them.


Also, Post pictures of your new setup. Both of the Jeep and of the bump stop.

Please post some pics when you get a chance. Looks like I will be getting the front springs too.

How hard were the spacers to pop out? When I heard them seat with a loud pop, I figured I'd be cutting them out if I ever went with longer coil springs.

Glad they worked for you! I know my friend with a winch and stuff on his 2dr has those springs and added a 1/2" spacer to help level it.

The spacers were not too hard to remove. I used a set of large channel locks and was able to pry them out. I will post some pics on the weekend once I have time to take them.

So could I cut the spacers I have to shrink them from 2" to .5-1" ? It seems they are solid and I could just cut them to size without any problems. Feedback?

I think it can be done. Not that everyone could though.

So if you're considering cutting down your spacer, would you suggest I just get the 3" springs to start? When you get a chance, can you give me a measurement from the top of the shock mount to the center of the bottom mounting bolt? I'd like to get a better idea of what your setup is now in comparison to mine.

Do you have the rest of the needed mods/parts to accommodate 3.5" of lift?

Go out and flex your front axle, that will seat the Bumpstops if they are not already.

Right now I don't have a need to raise the front any higher. I'm just debating if I should try and sell the two front spacers (if anyone would even buy them) or if I should hang onto them in case I need to add an inch when I install a winch. Alternatively, I could just buy a basic leveling kit if needed at that time.

I measured and I have about 11.5" from the top of the shock mount to the top of the bump stop. About an inch less if you measure from the rim of the shock mount.

It's hard to tell, but I have a couple inches of space now between my front bump stops. No more harsh ride on bumps.



Jeep now sits level and has plenty of space up front.
