leveling kit question

hey folks!

went to the local 4x4 store today and i was asking about leveling kits and got some confusing responses.

first of all, i dont have a lift on my jeep (98 tj) and i was wondering if a leveling kit would be a good idea (just to get away from that kind of forward lean look on stock jeeps)? i dont claim to be very knowledgeable on this subject so any advice would be a big help.

basically, when i asked about getting a leveling kit the lady looked at me like i was a crazy person. it seemed like she didnt know what a leveling kit was. then she started trying to talk me into getting a full coil spring lift.

i guess basically my question is; am i getting dicked around? or am i completely off base?

any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!

Ask them about a budget boost or spacer lift instead, its basically the same thing but its not called a leveling kit on a jeep

just go to the junkyard and get some XJ/ZJ 4.0L and ZJ V8 front springs. Use whichever ones that make your Jeep "level" to your desire. Cheap and easy.

this is exactly what you want

Daystar 1.75" Budget Boost Kit for Jeep Wrangler TJ | Morris 4x4 Center

there is also a page for a 3/4 of an inch spacer kit, depending how badly youre pointed down in front

Daystar is probably your best bet as far as quality
