View Full Version : Lift Spring Questions
04-24-2003, 05:05 AM
One of the things on my list is to raise the front end 2" to match the rear. I was wondering if I did install 2" springs or 2" add-a-leafs, would I gain a true 2" of lift? Or would I need to get a 3" spring/add-a-leaf so when it settles with the weight of the front, it will settle down to actual 2" of lift?
I will go with a bigger lift, but later on down the road(yeaaaaarrrrrsssss in the future)For right now I would just like to match the front with the rear.

When you get a lift, it will raise it 2" above the stock height position. So depending on how bad your springs are shot, you could get 4" of lift :D

Well they might be shot, they are flat! But there is only 3 leafs on them(one really small), so it could just be normal lol

What I was told, by one of the other forums,, to have a new leaf placed in the spring pack instead of messing around with the add-a-leafs. For about the same price as the add-a-leafs, I had new new, thick leaf installed that held my V8. Go to a nearby spring shop and have them do the same.

I have done this, so far, so good, not bad, decent lift for the price.
Would I do it again?
Rides like a tank, (not that I would know the difference), have only ridden in two nice FSJ's.
My plan for the J20/HD44Front/D60Rear axles is to return to a new set of stock springs (SOA) up front.
