Pic of jeep I bought. Left front Spring. I have never seen a stock spring perch ...unless this is one on my jeep. What do you guys think is this the 2.5" lift the guy said it has ? I have some other pics of the front end I will post also...and one of the back spring. Thanks for any observations.

Is the sway bar level or angles down to the sway bar links?

What’s the ground clearance at the frame rail behind the front lca (and what size tires)?

Measure the springs at ride height:

Front should be 12”, Rear 8”. Anything over that is lift (under is sag).

Looking at that, looks like you have a budget boost (that rubber spacer between the spring and the top of the perch). Also worth noting you’re missing your Jounce bumpers, which will make bottoming out the suspension a bit harsher.

I already ordered 2 stock bump stops. Can put those on rear and order two more *2" for the front.
I measured the springs....12" and 8" stock sizes.
Think I have front steering problems with slack in the linkage.
I don't know the names of the parts under there....saw a pic awhile back of all of it with names but can't find it now.
Thanks for the info
