when i look at my TJ from the side it seems like the front is further down then the back... is it just an illusion? or is there something i can do?

Re: leaning?

got a winch on that thing? If so, it's a common enough problem, they aren't too light.

Re: leaning?

My YJ does this BAD. It's more a of rake than a lean. I think it's do to saggin. Although I'm not quite sure on a TJ.

Re: leaning?

i think all jeeps lean, i think my tj leans to the passanger side because my tool box is always back there on that side and probably ways enogh to make the jeep lean. If you think the fort is leaning maybe add some 1" spacers to the front or if you add a spacer lift go 2" in the front and 1" in the rear. That would probably level it.

Re: leaning?

It's the driver's weight up front making the springs sag....just kidding!

Actually, I've not looked too close at TJs new on the lot. Mostly off-road! You might have a look at a brand new jeep and see if they are leaning forward too. Most '93 on Ford trucks are about 2" higher on the back end then the front. I think it is to give them a more agressive look--to make sales,no other reason. I know my '95 was that way until I dropped the canopy on and that leveled it out. Of course F150 and Rangers are coil front/leaf rear instead of coil/coil. Not sure honestly!
