Does my jeep have a leveling kit?

Sorry if this seems like such a noob question. I read that most JK's have the front end sit about 1" lower than the back. I went and measured from the ground to the bottom of each fender flare and they are all 34.25". Any ideas? Here's a pic.

Edit: Just to clarify, I bought it used. Dealer didn't mention any upgrades but he knew next to nothing about jeeps so they may not have noticed if it did.

No. A "leveling kit" is a lift that raises the front more than the back. Your Jeep is not lifted.

That was what I thought a leveling kit was. Why is my front end the same height as the back then? Or am I mistaken in assuming most stock jeeps sit about 1" lower in front than back?

Thanks!

Measure mid wheel to flare. The rear stock can be 1" higher. Sometimes less.
Usually a spacer is installed for quick height up front. If there's no spacer it's probably not lifted/leveled.

My performance leveling kit measures 37.25 inches on all four corners from mid wheel to flare. Minus the right rear due to the gas tank. that's at 37.

What are your stock coil numbers. Should be a tag on them.

17" lift ? Lol

Stock = 201/4 front.... 211/4 rear. +- .5 from the number of jeeps I've measured.

I'm not sure if these are what you are looking for but here is what I found:

Front:
6800 (or mabye 0089)
4255AA

Rear:
5212
6313AC

I remeasured from the middle of the hubcap to the fender flare and got the rear being .25" higher than the front. Can't remember the exact numbers.

Ok 55 rears and 13 fronts looks like. I had 14 fronts and 56 rears. So you have the lowest of spring coil rates. I didn't really notice my rake until I slapped on the Rubi takeoffs myself.

What exactly does that mean? I remember seeing a thread about how lots of the same models of wranglers have different springs, but I can't remember what the numbers actually mean.

They way Jeep has chosen coil spring part numbers, the higher the number the spring rate (stiffer). The two numbers represent front and back.

In theory, the choice is random but in reality auto manufacturer's don't leave much to chance anymore.

Actually the lowest is 12/53.

Thanks for the clarification, guys. It seems weird that Jeep would put different springs on the same vehicle.

4 doors usually have the stiffer/longer coils.
