Just curious if anyone might have some info.
I have a 4.5" rubicon express lift with 37" nittos.
My frame sits 19" off the ground. My buddies synergy lift with 37" hancooks sits 21.5" off the ground. I know no two lift springs are the same or tires but damn... 2 and a half inches?

No 2 tire brands are the same height either. Use the diagram above to determine your true lift height

I don't like this one. The shock and coil height don't seem to coincide.
Agree, use this one:



The shock length measurement isn't quite right for some reason.

I have a RE 2.5" coil lift and a heavy JKUR. After install and no winch, 2.5" front and 2" rear. After winch and 1" spacer in front, 3" front and 2" rear. Measured at spring tower/perch.

I will go confirm but iirc there was a 1/2-3/4 difference.
I just remeasured mine in both locations. 22 1/2" at shocks 13 3/8" at spring as per the diagram. 4" difference at both locations.

Now I could see there being a difference if you measure from the front of the spring bucket to spring perch because as you lift the axle housing turns.. A high enough lift would even produce a different measurement between front of spring and back of the spring. The perch will tilt forward but the buck stays the same.

Do any of you guys have the measurement for the rear or is it the same
Just found my front is 1 3/4in lower than it should be with my 2.5 lift and want to see how far the back is off
