Hi Folks,

still engulfing myself in a lot of reading and tinkering on the Jeep to become more familiar with it. We replaced the shocks with Pro Comp ES3000's and the steering stabilizer with the ES2000 this weekend. While in there I couldn't help but think the coil springs have spacers and that would explain how it can fit the 32" tires. I'm not aware of what the max tire size is that a stock TJ can take, I don't believe it's 32" tho.



I found the spring measuring chart. When I get home tonight I'm going to measure the springs. It had Rubicon Express shocks installed and they were very stiff, really didn't care for them. The more I'm digging I'm starting to think the PO installed an the 2" economy lift Rubicon Express sells.

Also wanted to note, our parts guy informed us the ES3000's we bought can go on a stock ride height and also fit for a 2" lift which he asked if we were interested in.

Thanks for reading!

Looks like a 2" suspension lift. The spacer on top of the spring is part of the lift. Some refer to it as a "hockey puck" . IMHO.

Looks like stock springs and 2"BB spacers, stock swaybar links. Bumpstops seem really long in the pic.

Thanks guys!

Definitely lifted 2 inches with spacers, measured it last night. Being our first Jeep and no "lifting" experience, I just didn't know. The Pro Comps are a huge difference over the Rubicon Express shocks. This Jeep, for now, is 98% street driven. So the softer shocks are better for what it's being utilized for. Think I'm going to put the Rubicon Express shocks up for sale on craigslist.
