coil spring lift question

I have a new 2010 sport with Rustys 2" lift that was installed as part of a package the dealer puts on select wranglers. While installing the trailer hitch, I noticed that the rear coils angle or bend towards the front of the jeep. The fronts are straight. Is this normal? Thanks.

Anyone? I need to know if this is normal or if it needs to go back to the dealer. Thanks

No pics, so we don't know what you're talking about

If you have the assend jacked up ??, hard to tell, but

If the jeep is sitting on a level ground, NO OFF CTR LOAD, the coils are straight vertical, BOTH LATERAL AND LONGITUDAL

Sounds like they didn't use a trackbar relocation bracket or adjustable trackbar.
The lift is upgradeable. Hope you didn't pay much for it though.

How bad is the angle of the swaybar links up front? I bet that the one on the passenger side looks like the leaning tower of Pisa.

I went to an independent Jeep shop today and they said it was normal when putting on a lift.

If all they did was put in longer springs and stress the bejesus out of everything else...

It begs a person to define "normal" for you.
Jimbo gave you a good answer in CAPS. Jimbo means it when he uses caps.
