well i just went and measured my black one w/ spring over, and old 2" springs. and 33's.

it is 29.5" in front
and 25 in back, but there's different spots to measure also.

if you can take some pics of the suspension i can usually tell by seeing the spring.

i think the body lift is throwing me off, it just doesn't seem like 7 total inches. my black one sits around 6-7.

but those look like they have too much arc to be 2.5, so i'd say 4".

soa w/ 4" springs is just too much. besides, that 4" spring won't flex great anyway. i agree though, lose the body lift, i can't stand them

i'm sure you don't wanna buy new springs, but you'll be buying some parts and doing a lot of work to lose the body lift, and do soa.

unfortanetly it seems you are understandably not happy w/ 4" sua lift, and 3" body lift, i wouldn't be. it may be time to start over, lose the body lift, go soa w/ new stock springs, or a 2" spring. soa on stock springs has plenty of clearance, any more than 2" gets excessive and back to being a stiff suspension.

i don't like them. they're cool for yj's first small lift, everyone does it, i did. i always take them off w/ soa. steering and suspension geometry is important w/ soa. changing just one side of the spring doesn't really help, it only lifts half the amount of the shackle and it pushes down the front side of the front spring. and the best thing about soa is the ground clearance, so no need to change the front spring angle.

hey ditch the track bar relocation bracket. its ****in up your steering. the track bar is supposed to sit parallel to the tie rod adjuster. myn looked like that and i got the jks slider. it really makes a difference.

My steering seems to be fine goes down the road when I let off the steering wheel I'm new to this so don't take offense also isn't it dangerous to remove track bar ?
