Rear sits higher after lift.

Just installed my 3.25 lift and after getting the front and rear on, the rear sits about 1.5" higher. I do have an aftermarket tube bumper up front, but I guess I just need to give it some time to settle?

Did your kit come with new rear control arms?

Ok only reason I asked is because I did a 2" lift had the same issue because I failed to loosen the control arms before lifting and they got bound causing additional lift. One trip of hard wheeling got them settled in nicely and now sits more level

Oh no, it came with a trac bar relocation bracket, not a control arm. sorry I've been working on the thing for about 18 hours and read it wrong.

Lol yes. Did you loosen all control arm mounts when you put on the lift?

When I had my RC 3.25 lift I had the same problem. Get yourself the RC 4" front coils and your rear should be .5 higher. You always want the rear a little higher in case you have alot of passenger in your jeep or heavy stuff in the back.

Lol I'll wait a little while before I do that...I had the WORST time with the coil compressors. I'm going to give it a while the way it is and hopefully it'll even out a little.

I didn't mention that it was jacked up on the front suspension overnight.
