Not an expert, but judging by what you described and how the vehicle is sitting, it looks like the PO put a spacer in the front to remove the factory rake.
Thanks for looking. I appreciate it!Just checked my stock JK to verify. You definitely have spacers in the front. Like I said, this is was probably to remove the factory rake.
It does look like its about 2". I had it twisted up yesterday pretty good with no rubbing. I don't know how but that back tire wasn't rubbing. (That I could hear or see) That electric sway bar disco is pretty cool! Beats the heck out of trying to line pins up and jumping up and down on the bumper like I used to do with my TJ.Looks like it may even be a 2" spacer in front. You can get a 1" spacer for the rear but the rear will probably sit 1/2" higher when you take off the hardtop. Do you rub at all at full lock? If not, you may also have wheel spacers with that tire size.
