Been asked before...But?

My idea is to raise front, and level rear with spacers. My objective is modest tire size 31” is my expectation. Raising front with 5100 height adjustable Struts (Replace sagging stock springs). Recommended after market springs( not OME please)? Rear springs sagging, and too soft. Spacers, how much spacing needed for leveling? After market springs( again not OME please). Rear shocks will also be 5100’s.
Alignment, and clearance problems with 5100 height adjustable Struts I need to address? Will I need adjustable track bar?
Sorry if this has been asked before, but after searching threads nothing I could find answers my thoughts, and questions. I am new to IFS folks, and want reliable above all else. Thanks Cheers.

I also am in a quandary, I installed a RRO 2 1/2” lift kit with new moog coils and 5100’s all which resulted in a 3” lift total. Now the rear is lower than the front and I have been unable to find 1” spacers to fit and lift the rear of my 2008 Grand Cherokee.

I have found some 1” spacers at Canadian Tire, correct diameter as well( Bonus $11.99 each). Now onto alignment, and upper A arm clearances with 5100’s at highest setting. Is there any past posts that address these concerns.

Thanks guys, trying to track down some relatives that that live up there, as they don’t ship to USA. My next problem is I need 1” spacers to lower my tranny cross member. Already ordered the bolts for Fastenal. Can’t find any 1” bushing/spacers

Thanks guys should be receiving spacers this Wednesday. Now most say it looks weird 3” lift with regular tires. Maybe used to the look by now, but I will not ride without a spare! Which reminds me of a wk I saw on this site that had a rear mounted swing out spare tire holder. Guessing it was customized. Don’t remember the tread.

I run 5100’s up front maxed at +2”, and Dobinsons 2” lift springs in the rear. They are the heavy duty springs, so they sit about 2.5”. In hindsight, I would have gotten the medium duty springs instead. I’m happy with this setup on 255/70R17 on jk rubicon wheels and 1.5” rough country wheel spacers.
