smitty58 Thanks, I'll back the pressure down to see if that helps. If not I will be changing shocks ,or I'll have to wear a helmet so I don't knock myself out on the rollcage.

Shoot I have mine down to 25psi. Yj's do not ride soft. There are times when I should have a kidney belt on running up and down the 15 fwy here in Southern California.

smitty58 Thanks, the shocks are pro comp es3000. I don't know anything about shocks but would like a little less stiff ride.

flatline shock might be nitrogen filled, a little stiffer than stock. and if you want a softer ride replace the lift with Old man Emu lift.

jpdocdave post some pics of the suspension and side view of the jeep, lots of variables to deal with, that will help narrow things down.

and it ain't gonna ride soft.

Too stiff suspension

Just bought a 95 yj, it has a 2 1/2 inch lift. Looks like just a spacer. The guy told me it had new shocks but man this thing is very stiff, too stiff really. What might be the problem and how to I fix it?
Thanks
