Questions on lifting my TJ
Ok buddy of mine just gave me a pair of 1 1/2" lift spacers and extended bump stops for my TJ. My TJ has a slight front end sag, and Im installing a Warn M8000 winch next week. So I figure that I needed them and they were free so what the hay.
I installed them this evening with no probs, but it seems a little tall in the front. I mesured from the finder flair to the top tire and its about 1/2" higher in the front than the rear now. Did I mesure from the correct place? I assume that the 80+# winch will lower the front the 1/2" or so? Finally I didnt measure the space between the stock bump stop to the frame (inside the spring) but the extended bumpstop seems to have made that distance shorter? I ASSUMED that by adding a 1.5" spacer and a 1.5" extension to the bumpstop that the distance betwen the bumpstop and its contact point SHOULD stay the same? Am I correct in that logic? Ill measure a stock TJ next time I get the chance to compare actual measurements.
