OK here is the deal. I have a 2000 TJ 4.0 with an auto. I got to spend some money the other day and just finished up the install of my new RE lift kit. Couldn't be happier with the lift. looks like good strong parts, rides great compared to what was under there.
Here's the problem. gotta it all done and the rear of the jeep sits a lot taller than the front. got to scratching my head over it and started comparing part numbers all the numbers match for what is called for on the 3.5 kit. Then began fine checking everything for a third time and all looks fine. Though the rear springs might have been put it wrong but then again there the same height either way or side.
Drove the jeep around thinking they might set in a little no luck. The jeep does have a winch on the font and I accounted for that but the rear sits a good two inches taller. Any one else had an issue like this before. I'm thinking they may have mislabeled the box and put 4.5 springs for the rear. Any in site would be helpful and thanks in advance.
I ran RE springs and they were stiff enough that even with a heavy 9.5K Warn winch, steel bumper, tranny cooler, driving lights, etc., the Jeep still sat perfectly level without the need for a spring spacer. I'd give RE a call and explain the issue and get their take on it.

Maybe you have the wrong springs....but I just went out and looked and dad's has a spacer in it to make it level. Now, a 8274 is at least 30+ pounds heavier than a 9500, but I can't see 30 pounds breaking the camels back
Well just called RE, they said they build there lifts a little taller in the rear to account for gear. It does sit taller in the rear but im going to live with it for now. Rides good might order some spacers for the front. thanks for the input and help
