are you talking about "fender" wheel clearence? I have never heard of wild country, is it a suspension lift? Did you install it yourself? is it severe or just .5"-1" or so, if so get a pair of spring spacers to level it out.

remove the rear spacers.

don't forget to set the bumpstop extensions correctly (which was not included in your kit).

you need the front and rear spring isolators. those are different than spacers.

English translation:

OK, thank you all, isolators it is.

Which still doesn't really make me feel confident that he understands what we're telling him......

I installed a TeraFlex 3" lift kit a little over a year ago. I left the factory spring isolators in. No spacers.

The distance from the front tires to fender is noticeably less than the rear. It bothers me almost every day I look at it.

All I added to the front was a 65 lbs bumper. The rear got 130 lbs of bumper/tire carrier, plus a 33 inch spare attached, and it didn't make a difference.

So I don't think you are alone.

Nope, not an English teacher. I just know how to use proper grammar, spelling and punctuation--traits not only practiced by English teachers. And I weld, as well....these aren't mutually exclusive skills so that's not a valid excuse

Keep practicing, one of these days you may actually have to put it to good use.

Notice how, due to your lazy/incoherent posts, the entire point of your thread has changed?

"Shaprest touls"... Lol.

I know how something is said is hard to convey over text, but really, you have some good guys here giving you the correct info. That's the main thing you can hope for, right?

Anyway, back to the Jeep, I see these 'level' pucks of 0.75" everywhere (they are like isolators but then thicker), maybe if you fit those it would level out better?

Been thinking about doing that myself when I just put the lift on, but now after a few trail rides, it seems to level out a bit by itself.
