I did the f->r swap on my 95 ZJ. I used RE 3" front coils. I measured before and after....it gained 5" in the front and 3.5" in the back. I added 2 sets of factory isolaters to the rear to level it out. I did the lift in June and decided it would probably settle a little. I just measured it and still 5" front and now 4" in the rear. I couldn't figure out how it could be at 5"....so I asked what the stock ride height was from center cap of wheel to the fender lip. I remeasured and still it's 5" taller. Some people think I'm crazy to get 5" from a 3" spring....anyone have a similar experience?

Must be Rubicon Express springs... They are usually higher than they say.

Not to mention that ZJ springs are made to hold up a V8 and yours only has a 6 I would be willing to bet if you had the V8 you wouldnt have so much lift..

I am running 6.5" springs on mine and I am almost 7" taller than stock.. Even with the V8..

IF you are 5 up front and 4 in the back you should look nice and level...

Hope you have adjustable arms...

I have rubicon Express arms on the front ...That I cut and made adjustable for the front ... And I just cut the back ones and lengthened them ....

I have almost 112" wheel base.. Because I pushed the axles out..(stock is 109")

When you lift your Jeep you will notice that your wheels come in towards the center.. Thats what the adjustable arms are for.. To put your wheels back in the centerline of the wheel wells.. I actually pushed mine out a little front and back to give me added clearance for bigger tires.. (you can cut the front and back bumper as much as you want ... But cutting the door in the back and the hinge mount area in the front is not a good thing... Mr. Green
