RC 2 Inch Issue
 
Well about a week ago I had the rough country 2 inch spacers, bilstein struts, and 255/70/17 firestone destination a/t's installed. The jeep sits significantly lower in the rear then the front now, what can I do to the rear to make it level or higher? And yes it was installed correctly I was there the entire time.

The springs provide the lift in the rear, could they be shot? 83,000 miles

Could be. The RC is more of a leveling kit though. When i installed the one on my gf's XK it gave 2" up frot and about 1.5-1.175" rear. At this point you could get new springs or perhaps ditch the spacers and get either OME MD or HD springs.

Yep, I much prefer the level lifted look over the lifted raked look, as does a large portion of the marked (the reason most kits "level"). The front wheel wells are slightly larger than the rears possibly giving a leaning back look, your probably just fine. My springs have 180k on them and are not failed, I would hope yours are just fine.

Jeepinbyal.com I believe sells the springs by themselves. Or you can contact Kolak@aol.com. Tell him Sean with the WK reffered you. He usually has the best prices.

What kinda lift does it provide? I do like the factory rake so if the back was a big higher that would be nice, looks like I need to get some m/t's just for summer use! Lol

OME MD about 2-2.5". HD about 2.5-3", but will be quite a bit firmer.

What am I looking at cost wise for the rear setup?

+1 on calling Nick at Kolak. He is very helpful and has the best prices I have found on allot of stuff.
