Question Lift???

OK here are the specs: 89yj, 25" to bottom of rocker under drivers door, 2" body lift spacers, 33" Pro Comp Mud Terraine Tires, shackels are 4" eye to eye, Can you tell me what I have for over all lift over stock, AND how much of the lift is comming from the springs? Im getting ready to order the shocks and Im lost as to what size to order. The trac bars and sway bars are staying on if thats a consideration. I measured the skid pan under the transfer case and it has 1" square metal spacer on the sides, is this whats called the "drop" so the angle to the diff. is correct? I didn't get sqat for info from PO so Im trying to figure out whats in my jeep. I Thank you for all your help, this newbee stuff is a pain in the A!! I should have learned this stuff 40 years ago Oh Im not sure if my signature is correct!!

I believe stock height to rocker is 18", That leaves 7" difference. Ignore the 2" BL and that leaves you with 5" of non body lift. Shackles sound stock, the 33's give about 1.5-2" over stock height, leaving your suspension somewhere around 4-4.5".

My educated guess is that you have a 4" suspension lift as stated in your signature. And yes, the 1" square is a transfer case drop.

Not sure if this info is quite what youre looking for as it's all things you have basically already mentioned.

tigerblood Thank you this is exactly what I was looking for.I started double guessing myself and ended up totally confused. So when I go to order shocks I can look at ones for a 4" suspension lift??
