How to get rid of Rubicon droopy front end?
 
First time poster. Just got a new 2010 Rubicon and want to get the front end level if not a little higher that the rear end. Any sugestions? Pictures?

Don't have a Rubi but have put the Rubi's coil spring in and I put an Teraflex 1" coil spacer in my front and it was amazing what 1" did. I would say 1 to 2 inch spacers would be fine with little issues. I didn't have to change any other parts with this setup

Why would you want the front higher than the rear?

Teraflex Leveling Kit was designed to fix the factory rake.

I've seen Jeeps that look like they are an inch or so higher in the front, looks good to me. Now I wouldn't want it to look like something Cheech and Chong would drive! LOL At least get the front level with the rear. I'll check out the kit mentioned, you gotta look tuff when you are loadin' the groceries right!

I saw Quadratec had the 1" Teraflex spacers for like $20 each. Is that what you're running? I'm interested in doing the same thing. Not really ready for a lift until my offroad skills outmatch my Jeep's abilities, but I'd like to perk up the front end a bit.

yes, they were 19.95 when I got them from there. I noticed they went up a few cents lol

Replace stock front springs with longer one's.

When you start adding things like a real bumper, winch it will then be level
