Why did my BL unlevel my jeep?
 
I installed a JKS 1.25" bl and now jeep appears to be ~2'' higher in rear. The jeep has a 2.5" suspension lift on 33s and appeared (never measured) level prior to adding the bl this weekend. Is this typical???

Thanks -

There is no way a 1.25" bl can make your Jeep 2" higher in the rear. You just never noticed it.

I mean really think about it :)

All jeeps "slope" nose down. You'll see people do a 2" suspension lift with a 1" spacer in the front to level it out.

No doubt I thought hard on it and came to the same conclusion but then I started wondering if there was something I over looked. Honestly never noticed any front to back difference prior to bl.

Thanks for the replies,

The slope of your frame didn't change. The body lift just made it more noticeable.

Think about this. How would putting equal 1.25" pucks on top of the equal 1" tall body mounts create a small height discrepancy between the body and frame, let alone 2"? Doesn't really add up does it? ;)
