97 Jeep Please Help, What Size Lift Is This?

Hi Everyone,
I`m new to this site but not to Jeeps Wranglers. This is my third so far. Anyways I just bought a 97 and trying to figure out what size lift is on this. I`m pretty sure there is a body and a suspensions. It has Superlift stickers on the jeep.But nothing on the shocks. With 36x12.50 TSL Swamper`s. Not sure if the lift was install by a professional. It had a pretty bad front end shake before the tires were balanced.And the steering wheel is almost upside down(will not center)I`m just trying to figure out whats on this jeep before I get a alignment done and many other things I`m sure.Last but not least how can I get this darn steering wheel center/straight? Thanks in advance...

At the top of the drag link there is an adjustment sleeve (circled in yellow). It has two clamps on each end. Loosen the nuts. Have someone sit in the seat to watch the steering wheel as you turn the sleeve. Try to get the wheels as straight on the ground as possible so you wont have to do it too many times. Once they holler that it is centered, tighten the nuts and go for a drive to see how it looks. If it's not where you want...repeat.

I agree and i think its 3" bl also. Take a shot from the rear or measure the gap from the rear bumper to the body.. If its 2" bl it should be like 2.5 or 2.75 and if its 3.. i should be 3.5-3.75...

Very nice JEEP MoA, i know they're not white, but the reflection in this pic makes your wheels look that way. I'm wondering when the white rims are gonna come back to life, I saw one with them the other day and it looked nice with a decent lift and bigger tires?? I like em.

Thanks everyone for all your help..Steering wheel is nice and straight. Sorry about some of the bad pics. I just used the ones from the posting ad. Also I tried to find the last owner and had no luck.But I`m all good now.

IMO - Looks like a 4" suspension and either a 2" or 3" body lift.

Love those tires. Welcome to WF!
