    Mine didn't drop at all, but I reduced weight with synthetic rope, plus the springs are new.

    Mine didn't drop much, but it was already pretty low in the front. I think I have some stock spring droop. I think I am going to be amazed at how much lift the 2Inches will actually be once I get it on. I think mine sits lower than stock to start with.

    I bet you will be. With my new springs it only dropped about 1/4" after adding the aftermarket bumper and winch.

    Measure the front springs from bottom coil to top, not including the spring pad cushion at the top. 12" is stock height.

    I haven't ordered my lift yet. I am going to this week, but was waiting for some gift cards and rebates. This Jeep is costing me some dough.

    I hope you're not waiting on us to send you gift cards. As much as I'd like to see you get that lift on there....I have some things I need to get too.

    I was just curious to see if and how much your stock springs were sagging. An OEM spring in good condition should measure 12".

    Once I put my lift on I will measure the differences. I am curious also.
