Reznor I'm not sure that the above method is really reliable. Springs will sag over time, and will have different spring rates.

My understanding is that the space between the wheel hub (center) and bottom of the top of the fender flares is 19" in the front and 20" in the rear. This might not tell you what size lift it was *originally* but should tell you how much lift you currently have over stock.

skyhawkap Thanks! I have not had my Jeep long and the PO put the lift on. I was just wondering what I had so when I do need to start replacing parts I'll know where to start. I measured and am showing just under 4" difference from the stock numbers s14sh3r gave. Can I assume that that is a 4" lift? That seems like alot compared to the pics I've seen with Jeeps with known 4" lifts (mine seems to be lower).

XTRyan Measure your springs against those measurements and you'll get the approximate height of your lift. There might be an inch or so off because of the springs sagging or settling in.

If you're measuring for shocks, you can also take your shocks off and measure them. you'll want to get a measurement of them compressed and extended. then compare that to the shocks you're looking at getting. Most manufactures have the measurements of their shocks on their pages.

s14sh3r The length of the stock springs, installed and with the jeep on level ground are 12 inches front and 8 inches rear.

Measure Lift

How would I measure my lift to determine how much lift I have?
