is there any spring sag here?

By looking at the picture, can you tell if my YJ has any spring sag, and if so, how bad it is? The first picture is pretty easy to see. My frame is about 19". The picture to the right is also of my front frame, as seen from between my tubular bumper. The green lines point to the bottom of the frame where I measured (you know, that tube-like crossbar that a frame cover usually hides). Same for the bottom picture, only it is of my rear (well, the rear of my Jeep). [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] So basically about 19" in the front, depending on where you measure, and 18.5" in the back. (What say you, 91muddyj? It's hard to compare to your measurement since I have an aftermarket bumper.)

Why don't you compare the measurements fo the spring to frame.. that would be more accurate... take a picture of the actual spring, and we can see if it is sagging. if their is any Neg arch, then they have sagged

In the rear measuring from where the shackle is bolted to the frame - to the ground is 19'. And I measured the front like you did and got about the same measurement.
