What is the best way to level out my front end? Also, How do i determine how much lift or spacer i need?
Spacers will level you, but the best way is through springs with the proper height and spring rate. My Jeep is level now, but if I add a winch on the front I'll have to get springs on the front with a heavier spring rate or taller springs and adjust my shocks (I have adjustables).I have an inch difference. I am also going to lift 2" at the same time. I was going to do 3" coil in the front and 2" in rear to level it but some one suggested that it might be so far off because my old fr springs sagged. So I should by 2" front and back then remeasure and if needed add a spacer in the front.
depends how worn out the ones you buy are, and how worn out your current ones are.How much lift will v8 zj springs give you?
you only use the fronts, because those share the same basic geometry.Will the rear ones lift the back of a tj also or is it just the front ones?
Does it matter the year of the ZJ? And if I am at the wrecker pulling them out, does it matter what year ZJ I pull the tie rod out of?UnlimitedLJ04 said:get springs from an up-country XJ and a V8 ZJ from your local junkyard. shouldn't cost more than $20.
use whichever ones you like the most.
