Front end lift for my YJ

Hello, I've been reading threads on this site for a while now but this is my first time asking for advice. I have a yj with a 4 inch suspension lift that i put on back in april. the front end must be starting to sag because its a few inches lower than the rear. what can i do to correct this? do they make leveling kits for yjs? i have been looking at a front shackle lift or add a leaf to the front springs...(im a poor college kid so please dont tell me to just buy a better quality lift thats not really an option right now). thank you for all your help!

I have an extra add-a-leaf kit that I didn't put on the rear of my jeep. I bought the kit for the front and rear but liked the way it sat with only the front on. They are the same part number (front and rear). I would sell it kinda cheap. Where are you? PM me and we can see what's up.

Get in touch with the lift manufacturer, take some pictures and send them to em. They may replace the saging springs for nothing. Free is good!

If the springs are starting to bend (settle out) an add-a-leaf isn't going to correct or stop the problem...the main springs will start to bend past the end of the add-a-leaf and eventually snap! Matcheen is right, get pictures AND measurements (park on level concrete or tar, measure from center of shackle bolt to the ground, all 4 springs, both bolts on each one) If any spring looks like it is going 'flat' (settling out) get good picture of that. If you get nothing but 'black' pictures with poor detail under the rig, get a sheet of poster board and stand it up behind the spring-gives you contrast and the spring will show up great. Then write down tire size, etc. and double check tire pressure-have them all equal...send it in to the tech department of the manufacturer and ask what they think! It happens-you could have gotten bad springs and may end up with new ones!
