Stock TJ level?

I have a damn near bone stock 2000 TJ and I kept thinking something was off and it just dawned on me that it might not be level. Do jeeps come level or need something to change that?

Your front springs will start to sag a bit sooner than the rears because of the extra weight from the engine. My '02 was like that when I bought it; the front sat about an inch lower than the rear. I did a coil spacer lift and got two inch spacers for up front and 1 3\4" in the rear. I kept the stock isolators in up front for the full 2 inch lift and took them out in the back, giving me more like 1 1\4" of lift in the back. That leveled it out almost perfectly.

Jeeps do not come level from the factory. and no, you don't need to change that.

think about it- you add some gear, tools, passengers, hard top, etc to the rear end, and the added weight will sit the suspension down some. you don't want the headlights pointing at the sky, or the rear suspension riding on the bumpstops, so you need some forward rake.

I assume this was directed toward me? I got some slight vibes after the bb, so I have a tc drop installed for now; I do have a BL, so I may do a MML to eliminate the tc drop eventually. I did need to adjust my toe-in after the BB, but that was pretty simple. I do have some shimmy, but no death woble; my tires are pretty worn though, so I think replacing\balancing them would eliminate my shimmy.

eboven,
Thanks for your response.
I also want to do a mild BB, 1.25" Front and .75 Rear (trying to avoid a TC Drop). Presently I have 30" tires and I am undecided to go to 31's (do not want to loose any power)
