OME Springs Questions

some weeks ago I noticed that I installed my OME springs in a wrong way. I installed the rear and the front longer springs on the drivers side.
Thatīs why my TJ is 3/4-1" lower on the passengers side.
But the front and rear is levelled out at the moment.

Tomorrow I have the time to change the rear springs, the longer one will be installed on the passengers side.
Iīve read that the drivers and the passengers side will be levelled out on this way.
But whatīs with the front and the rear?
Will the front come down a bit with the changed rear springs? Or the rear? Or will it stay like it is?

I have 2 more OME trimpackers and could install them in the front or the rear. But for that i have to know what will happen after i changed the rear springs.

Thanks for your help.

and didnt you read the directions before installing them?

iīm a lazy guy.
i visit my parents this week, and hre i only have the stock lifter and 2 jack stands.
i have to lift the jeep under the axle, then put the jack stands under the frame. and then i have to remove the tires to let the axle down...
and i really donīt want to do all that twice... :flipoff:

my OME lift came without instructions. thatīs why i installed them on the wrong side in the rear. :firedevil:

Hey you could allways leave it that way and just pull one side apart and put a 3/4" coils sping spacer in the low side.That way you get an extra bit of lift plus you only have to do one side.

hes already got 2.5'' coils, 2'' pucks, and a 2'' body lift.. plus hes in germany and the laws are strict over there =p

wow believe it or not my RC kit came with directions and my coils were marked: passenger and driver and the difference between front and rear was obvious. :D

youīre right MoA, i often hate our laws.
but an advantage is that because of these laws i am one of the "biggest" here with inly 35s and 6.5" lift.


with the changed spings the TJ drives much better. there is no more sag to the right while accellerating.
