Low front end


Recommended Posts

Why does everyone hate the rake? I love it. It looks a little mean, and it makes it so it doesn't look like it's dragging it's @$$ when it's loaded down.

 

More on topic though... if you have a 4 cylinder, you can throw a set of 4.0 springs in to pop the front up a bit.

Yes if your suspension is stock. Grand Cherokee (ZJ) coils springs rated for the V8 will give you about a two inch lift. so will the front coils out of a ford F 150. Or you can also do some home brew spacers

 

just a few links to help you out.

if it's 2wd, then 4wd coils will bump it up an inch. And if it's 2wd, all of above suggestions will lift in another inch on top of the numbers provided.

 

 

A sneaky way to gain a bit is to throw in extra coil spring isolators (the rubber donut above the coil spring.)

or if its anything like mine, replace the crusty old rotten isolator with a nice new one!

I noticed that too. I also love the rake but mine is has more than most. Dunno why. I noticed that when I bought it. It got a little worse when I replaced the rear springs. I added OME 930 coils for 1 1/2" lift but it still has a pretty good rake. About perfect now.
