stumpbuster I also did the zone lift, that's how they come, ridiculously raked 4ward..
they wont settle out, I put the 1" spacer in front a year ago and I have a perfect stance imo

TJDave I forgot to add that you may want to wait a bit longer and give your new lift springs time to settle.

I have a few pics to share of my battle with levelness. When I swapped out my BB for a 3" lift a few years ago, the rear end sat pretty high. I measured and cut a BB spacer down to 1.5" to level the Jeep. But, it was empty. First trip out after the spring settled, and loaded up with gear, I got this.


Not too long after, I swapped out the low quality 3" springs for a very popular name brand 3" springs, and swapped the front 1.5" spacer for a 3/4" spacer. A bit of a rake towards the front when empty. Just fine with me.


Couple more years in the books and I think my springs have continued to settle just a bit more. This pic is of the Jeep loaded with tools, gear, and fuel. I think I may take the 3/4" spacer out of the front.


I would give your springs a little more time to settle out before adding anything just yet.
I'm not to worried about the leveled look much anymore these days.
Good luck.

bighamms @all...i bought/installed the ZONE 3" lift which came with new springs. I assumed that the springs in this package were designed to create the proper level front and back. I'll recheck my height this evening as I just realized that the 33/35 was my starting height. Also, my rear bumper (37lbs heavier than the front) includes a tire carrier and I didn't factor in the weight of the tire in the height because i don't currently have it on the vehicle.


To be continued...

I hate the front lean and have always corrected this on my rigs
better yet, buy springs of the proper spring rate and unloaded length. the spacer won't fix the root of problem...

TJDave Load your Jeep up with fuel, recovery gear, tools, and everything else you would take with you on an outing. Re-measure.
