I have 4.5" and the stock front trackbar. The axle is about 1" off, but there is no steering or handling problem.

Install an adjustable TB if you want to re-center your front axle.

nicolas-eric with the 1.25" BL and 1" MML you can get rid of the TC drop if you have one.

if you ant it cheap you could install 1" spacers in the rear and 2" spacers in the front. that will also work with 2" springs.

orange05tj 3" lift, 1" spacer up front, 1.25 BL on 33's. I have plenty of clearance.

Okay thanks. Good news and bad news I guess.

G54 Thanks for the replies. I think I'm having a senior moment, but, I guess what I'm wondering is - if I add a 1" spacer to the 2" springs - that would sort of make it a 3" lift - yes? So then do I need a drop pitman arm or something to correct the steering, or would it likely be okay?

And then also wouldn't that spacer give the same clearance in front as a 1" BL would? So add to that the flat fenders and then wouldn't I have enough clearance to run 33s without the BL? BTW - I run Soft 8s so they do stick out farther than OEM wheels.

It seems to make sense to me - but I've never heard of anyone doing it so there must be a reason.

orange05tj I have a 3" FT lift, and put a 1" spacer on the front to level it off, worked out good, plus I needed it for the winch. 2"+1" BL will be fine for 33's. I ran it for a while

Jma20a its fine to run a spacer over the spring, as for enough room for 33's i think you still have to go with the body lift, but im not 100% sure.

2" Spring Lift With Spacer?

I have a 2" Pro Comp spring lift on my '06 LJ. The front sits 1" lower than the back (measured at the rocker panels behind the front tire and in front of the rear tire.) If I installed 1" spacers on top of the coils in front to level it out would it cause any issues - such as steering problems? Anyone done this?

Also - if this is okay to do would it likely give me enough clearance to run 33" tires without a body lift? (I currently run 32s) I would also be replacing the oem fenders with the Xenon flat fenders pictured below.

(I realize I could just do a 1" body lift, but I want to level it out if possible and I was planning on those fenders anyway.)
