Re: Rear Lift

20'down: if you haven't yet, take some before & after measurements. I am curious as to what the net height gain is

Dude, that's a killer looking Jeep!

Re: Rear Lift

Ok so all of those eagerly waiting i have to say the jk front spring spacers are a perfect fit for the rear of a wk2. It fit snugly on the body and firmly in the spring.
Previous measurments to bottom of fender
Front 35 7/8
Rear 35 5/8

Post measurments
Front 35 7/8
Rear 36 7/8

The amount of rake will be consistent for others but i have bigger tires than most run. 275 60 r20 33in tall

Congrats!! I think a little bit of rake is perfect and the 1/2" spacers provide just that. It's not too much. And it's CERTAINLY better than the nose up stance that you get with the RRO "leveling" kit alone.

Re: Rear Lift

I agree it is perfect. I do have one issue if anyone has any advice. Wjen i finished the install i took the jeep for a test drive. The Abs light is on and the parking assist is not working. The only wires and electronics involved are tye abs sensors. I know i did not damage them other than when the hub assembly is pushed down to remove the spring they do get pulled slightly. What could i have damaged and how would i fix it.

Re: Rear Lift

I disconnected the brackets holding my wires to make sure it didn't stretch at all. Yours may have been damaged unfortunately.

So, with a 1/2" spacer you gained 1 1/4" out back?

He will probably settle into about 1"-7/8" lift once everything seats properly as well. Mine did.
