I think I got an issue after steel bumper and winch

Sometimes when I go over bumps i hear a bang from the front, i think the bump stops hitting hard as I cannot see any damage anywhere else..

I took some pictures so if you can look at them and let me know if my shocks and sway bar are normal in this position.

I know i have to correct it by new shocks but I am confused on the best full kit that I have to buy to bring me back to normal with some little lift and for a better ride

I got a steal bumper, a steel winch and engine/gear armor with steel side steps.


Can you post pictures similar to this so i can compare mine with the stock

You are def sagging but the stock bump stops won't "bang" being rubber. Something else is contacting. Look for shinny spots on metal.

Best I can do. I still haven't installed my factory jounce bumpstop but the TF extension is still in place.
Stiffer longer coils and better shocks will help you.
Another option is to install a 1" spacer to bring the front back to stock. Better shocks for ride,

Have someone lift up or rock your rig from the front. Look at the sway bar links. I recently had the same issues and it turned out the the passenger side swaybar link was popping in and out.

Just a thought, look at the sway bar, from the pic it almost looks like it has less travel room before it hits than the bump stop does,
Check the top of that bar and see if it has been hitting.

I checked, the sway bar is not hitting anything, i compressed the springs until the bump stop hits the metal and nothing else is touching.

What shocks and springs you recommend for a stock + an inch or 2 of lift and do you think i need to lift the back as well at the same time, money is not an issue and I want to buy the complete set/best in the market.. What do you do if you are in my place?

I am thinking for a DYI installation but I need to know exactly the pieces I have to buy up front because They will ship international.. I prefer a single kit.

I am planning for 33inch wheels, and maybe I will keep my stock rims and just put a spacer and MT tiers.. I go off-road (easy-medium terrain, mostly over small-medium rocks) and I drive on highways at 60+miles but ride comfort is not the only factor I will consider.

Google or maybe somebody can post HD 19/60 spring upgrade. These are stock springs but stiffer and may provide a little bit of lift.

Do your coils have tags on them ? Look at the last 2 numbers. I'm assuming your springs are very light.

If budget is a concern this or even a small budget boost will be inexpensive. Look for some rubicon/Saraha shocks to go with the springs.

Just went through similar issue with my JKUR. Swapped front springs for Teraflex 1.5" Coil Springs. Levelled the front and eliminated noise while braking. Looks and handles better as well.

13 (front) is the lowest they go. I'm going to assume the rears are the same. (Low 50's)

Take a peak in our classifieds or CL for some 18/59's and some rubicon shocks.

You have a 2 door which will benefit more with the spring upgrade.

Found some but I just realized you are from EU.
Shipping would be a mess. Check your local CL

This is what you need to look for or better. True 19/60's can be bought from mopar but not sure of the cost.

Or scrap this whole idea and just go with a budget boost or coil lift.
