TnDz TJ Nitro,

If you install a winch and winch plate, it will compress your front end about an inch to match the rear...lol

Fit a winch.

pdweston I left everything loose until I sat it back down on the ground just like the instructions said.
I will try loosening everything again and cycling the suspension and let you all know.
Nothing in the instructions said there were specific sides for the springs. I will say that I noticed it being un level after the front was lifted, but before that rear end lift was installed.
It measures 1" higher front AND rear on the drivers side, if that makes a difference.

I was not saying they won't fit which it is obvious that they will both fit on either side just you should always check if the maker took into account the movement of the engine.
Yeah my old man emu springs are specific to the sides. The passenger rear and the driverside front are a tad longer for those reasons

Loosen all the suspension bolts with the Jeep sitting on it's tires... CA's and track bars.. DO NOT REMOVE THEM.

Now bounce the front by standing on the bumper... do the same for the rear.... look at it again. You should be level unless you have something else mentioned above not right like a spring out of the bucket...

IF you are level... retorque your suspension to specs.
Yep, good call. Even if it was on the ground when each component was individually tightened, I'd go out there and loosen ALL the control arm bolts/ nuts, jounce the suspension SEVERAL times, then tighten them back up and see where you're at.

Now cycle the suspension by bouncing up and down on the front bumper... do the same for the rear.... look at it again. You should be level unless you have something else mentioned above not right like a spring out of the bucket...

IF you are level... retorque your suspension to specs.

Patrick H There is no "correct side" for the springs. They are interchangeable side to side.
12-09-2012 08:12 AM
pdweston I was not aware they had a certain side. How can you tell?
12-08-2012 09:11 PM
2JeepsThatRun Are the springs on the correct side
12-08-2012 09:06 PM
pdweston Front sway bar and sway bar links appear even. Springs are properly seated.
12-08-2012 02:48 AM
UFOtestpilot Make sure your springs are properly seated in their perches.
12-08-2012 02:17 AM
02 TJ Check you sway bar connects see if they are even.

Un level after the lift.

Just finish installing the Rough Country 4" lift on my 99 TJ.
Driver side is about 1 inch high than the passenger side.
I have only driven it around the block and it has not been aligned yet.
Any ideas?
