How much lower is the front sitting? You can do a few things:

1. get the longer springs in the front
2. Get a smaller spacer to stack on current ones. (stock .75's work well for a bit of extra lift.)

I would hold off until.....

You decide just how hardcore you plan on getting. If you plan on staying in the mild range just get the springs, if you plan on evolving take it easy and plan the expenses. You don't want to buy something now that you would have to replace later to get bigger.....

can you do it....yes

are you looking for a cheap fix? and thats it?

Heads up....since you have a 4banger rusty's 3'' spring will most likely settle at 4''

if you do the rusty's 3'springs front and rear...you will most likely need to do a transfer case drop or SYE/CV drive shaft, Adjustable track bars are highly sugested and probally shocks again.. Those springs net slightly more than advertised and since you have the 4banger you'll net a little more than most jeeps "4.0L" which most companys run there spring rate off of.


I think you'd be good with a set of OME 2.5 spring for the front if you just want to level it back out. If you get the regular OME 2.5 coils they will net 3'' to 3.25'' in the front for you.


Lets see a pic of you jeep bud.
