Ok so i got home today from a trip into town and notice that my jeep was leaning to the drivers side. I did some measuring and it is sitting about 1/2-3/4 of an inch higher on the passenger side rear wheel. the front is only 1/4 inch high on the passenger side. I am stumped. Should I try driving it around a little to see if it levels off? I have no Idea what would cause this. I need some help here.

I have found with chrysler products if the ground is not level you will not measure evenly around vehicle

Your springs do not have retainer clips on them, to hold them in place on the seating plates. Make sure the ends of your springs, are sitting in the proper place, on the plates. I have had to adjust ours, a time, or two. You can buy the clips, to hold them in position, but they do not come with them. Go figure.

This usually happens after flexing to the max.

Ok thanks, Well I drove it around a bit and it still leans but now it is only 1/2". It is still noticeable though. The springs are all in thier pocket and the shocks are old but still working. Could it be that my front sway bar is out of adjustment?

Is that really possible? The jeep only has 20K miles and i only weigh 150!
Not possible, bigjeep, is full of poop, on this one. Tell us more about what happened before you noticed the sag. Did you go wheeling, or do a jump, or extended your suspension completely out, in any way? Or did this happen, after just driving to work, and back?

I ran to wal mart and came back home..thats all. That is why its got me stumped. It is also a 4 inch short arm lift.

Did your lift come with new short arms? It would take a lot of slop, in the short arms to create that kind of drop. Just thinking out loud here, I still would have to go with either the springs aren't sitting correctly, or you got a bad spring, in the bunch. With the few miles that you have on your Jeep, I can't think of anything else it could be. Just make sure that each spring is in the perch, correctly. Meaning that the end of the coil, fits into the divot in the metal seat. There is only one correct way for it too sit. Make sure that all of your bolts are tight on your s/a's and the rest of your lift. Keep us posted to what you find out on this.

This is one time, that I would politely ask you, to shut the f**k up...........this is not normal, and your comments are not helping any.
