bakerboys Ok. Rear diff is 8.75 inches. And bottom of door is a little bit above 22 1/2 and.have 31 inch tires. So .i guess i.have a 2 1/2 lift. I guess 33s will work
02-19-2012 03:34 PM
bakerboys Oh. Ok. For tire size.
02-19-2012 03:33 PM
bakerboys Curious. What is .75. For
02-19-2012 03:30 PM

add or subtract

Measure the height to the bottom of the differential. Say it is 9.75". Then add .75" to 18". The bottom of the door should be 18.75 for standard suspension. If yours is 20.75, then you have a 2" lift.

bakerboys Couldnt i just add a inch.to top of tire to.see.if.33s will.work
02-19-2012 01:17 PM
bakerboys Sorry. Stock tire is 29 my bad. I ll try to figure it out
02-19-2012 01:16 PM
bakerboys Ok. So mine has 31s. Dont know lift either but 33s look like they will fit

So i just measure from ground to jeep under door stock should be 18 lets.say.mine is 22
Do i subtract for tire what is stock tire 28 inches

Need to know about to buy tires

that's what I was checking

It looked like my springs had sagged as there was only about 1.5" between axle and snubbers. But according to the original specs (9"/18") mine was right on. Actually it was 9" to diff and I have 235's on it. But only 1/2" there.

duaneduanet You can't go by the math exactly. Over the years the jeep will sag some.

Could just be the difference in spring arc.
I have P235/75 R15 tires. P205/75 R15's are what came stock on the YJ.
I would say your calculations are pretty accurate.

JYD Mine is a stock 93 with 29" tires and I have 9" to differential and 19" to bottom of body under the door.

that works out

11" at the differential minus the 9" = 2".
2" tire add + 6" lift = 8"

18" + 8" = 26".

33" tires against 29" stock is 4" = 2" higher differential.

Love it when a plan comes together.

1BadAssJeep I have a 6in lift with 33s and the body underneath the door is 26 inches and my differentials are 11inches.

differential

From what I understand, the differential height is 9" and the height to the body under the door is 18". Measure the differential height, compensate for the door height and the rest is lift.

Mason505 Okay thank you for the help
02-17-2012 12:08 PM
ClayL so from what im reading the stock ride height is any where from 69.6 in (hard top) to 72 in (soft top)
02-17-2012 12:01 PM
ClayL no idea, but if you can fit 33's then you have about a 4" lift.
02-17-2012 11:59 AM
Mason505 I know it's taller than that though because 33s could fit easy, do you know what the stock height is so I could just measure and subtract the difference?
02-17-2012 11:51 AM
ClayL Could just have 1" shackles, you can really only fit 30's under the stock suspension, unless you change flares.
02-17-2012 11:48 AM
Mason505 31s
02-17-2012 11:29 AM
ClayL What tires are on it?
