We put 4100 Bilsteins and new spring isolators front and back so it raised the Jeep approx. 3/4" front, 1-1/2" rear.

The pictures below show 265 first and 255 second. Third is 255.

I went 275/45/20 (on 20x9 WK1 SRT8 REPs) and didn't have a problem at all with the upper control arm bushing (and/or the upper ball joint stud).

Thanks. Didn't actually think you were referring to mine, just was curious. I'm hoping that once I swap to SRT8 Bilsteins that it will drop it another half inch. Am please with it either way.
