Leveled out my 2wd

::I work in a shop so doing things like this is easier for me than others for obvious reasons::

Ill keep it short and sweet. I wont disclose how/what was used until put in some miles on it and determine it would be a price effective and viable option for a small lift. I only did the front because 2wd's have a large rake in front than the 4wds. What i can tell is that after install, both front and rear fenders measure the same distance to the ground. Still trying to figure out what a better option would be that would upgrade the suspension instead of just using some sort of spacer.

Watching.

Interested in what you did for lift. Would you be able to do the same for the rear? There are lift springs available from Eibach for the Cherokee but they are only available in Europe. I found a US based distributor tho' but I wonder if they actually have them in Stock.

I know about the springs and actually got in contact with eibach germany. avaibility is scarce for some reason but it would be a nice little lift that would upgrade the ride.

Nice. I will be watching this with hopes that it works. The FWDs need a lift option also. I was close to purchasing the budget lift just to see if it would work on a FWD, but was worried about wasting my money on it. Any chances that you can squeeze larger tires under it now that it is leveled? I know other vehicles I have had in the past, just leveling it out would allow for larger tires.

you can squeeze larger tires without having to lift it. a 29" overall diameter tire thats 10.5" or less wide will be just fine.
