Appears to be the lower edge of the upper bump-stop flare in the top.What is that even a picture of?
Most lift kits on the market eliminate the rake and level the jeep. If you are level, it should be ok. If the front is nose up, or if you rub, then you will want to add a spacer on the rear springs.So using this info my lift gave me 2.5" in the front(my measurement was 21) but only 1" of lift in the rear (my measurement was 6.25) I have a 2015 JKU Sahara and i installed the 2.5" Teraflex lift. do these numbers seem right?
My Teraflex 2.5 measures exactly the same as yours. I have heavy bumpers, winch, skid plate, bumper tire carrier. It sits level I think that's the way its designed. I did have 3.5 at the front before I added all those heavy accessories.So using this info my lift gave me 2.5" in the front(my measurement was 21) but only 1" of lift in the rear (my measurement was 6.25) I have a 2015 JKU Sahara and i installed the 2.5" Teraflex lift. do these numbers seem right?
It looks fine to me, but it ain't my Jeep. If you want the rear up a half inch or so, add a set of spacers to the rear.
Keep in mind that when level the gap between the front tire and fender will be a little larger than the gap between the rear tire and fender. The two fenders, front and rear, aren't identical.
Whatever you do, make sure your headlights are properly adjusted. Leveling the Jeep, or adding spacers to the rear of the Jeep, will change the aiming of the headlights.
You can only measure it to see where you are currently at. From there you can probably figure out where you started.I have a 2012 Jeep with a rough country lift that is sagged out and worn out I don’t know what the lift size is can anybody tell me how to measure it with it being sagged out
ThanksYou can only measure it to see where you are currently at. From there you can probably figure out where you started.
Also, the amount of bump stop extension MAY help you figure out what lift you have.
You can also remove your shocks to see what their extended and compressed lengths are.
But why does it matter?
You may want to start a thread where you can measure, post the measurements, and perhaps include pics of your lift. You can also include what you want.
You can add spacers to level out the suspension or to compensate for extra weight. Most lifts are going to lift more in front than in back, usually about a inch to inch and a half difference. That is to level out the stock rake they come with. Yours sounds a bit extreme, and if that is what you got it sounds like it sits front end high.Have a 2.5" RE progressive spring lift installed, heavy bumpers, tire carrier with 35", tuffy security rear trunk, winch up front, soft top on and I'm getting a full 2.5" in the front and only about 0.75" in the rear. I want to add some spacers for some extra height, I guess I should go with something a little taller in the back than the front
