Rear Shock Mod (Spacer lifts, look here!)
 
So in my mission to rake my rear end a bit and help get rid of the sag when loaded, I asked a few people here and was givin a clue! So I came upon Monroe Load Leveling Shocks (part #58643). They are a shock with a spring assist. I found a thread on another forum where, to my surprise, this is a very popular mod!
Iv never heard of these on JG so I figured id share, the part number above is the longer shock, amazon has the best price, but it says it wont fit out jeeps, but they will, you just need a few washers at the top mount to make up the difference. Basically you get an extra inch to inch and half of lift in the rear, and they take a heavy load much better then the OEM setup.
I plan on installing these in a month or so, and pulling the bilsteins in the rear, possibly installing some OME springs in the back to to make up for my stock ones being beat to hell. Seeing as this mod will give me some rear rake, and will take the sag out when I have a load in back, it seemed like a good thing to share!

no it's the other way around...jeep forum is super "socially unacceptable" and won't let anyone post links of other forums or they will come up as stars. jeep garage is much cooler and understanding.

Agreed, but I have to admit I do go there for info on things, there's a lot more guys on there with lifted wk's then here, but I think I have like 12 posts there lmao and like 2,400 here
