New springs,front end higher than rear

Post by NRA life member » Wed Mar 09, 2011 1:31 pm

Just purchased a restored 46 cj2a, it has new springs, shackles, & bushings, not sure what brand but they have 10 leafs. Front sits higher than rear by mabe 2" anyone else had this problem, and how would you suggest the fix ? rear spring re-arch ?

The good thing about having alot of old jeeps is,it makes it more difficult for your wife to tell when you bring another one home.
