My jeep leans to the right, about two inches with the sway bar disconnected. The right rear springs are the culprit. They are year and a half old re 4.5" springs. I need to get this thing level again, it looks stupid! Here's what I'm thinking, Put in a used secondary stock jeep leaf? I'm afraid this wont net me the lift needed to level, Or add an add a leaf to the pack, I dont want to end up with too much lift on the right hand side, What you guys think?

Leafs aren't broken, I'm sure its a jeep thing, my other xj, my brothers and my dads all have the "jeep lean" mine is just a little worse

yep I have the driver lean! I think it is the jeep trying to carry the spare tire and not the one mounted in the trunk:D

I get the passenger lean when I hit the gas but I assume its from a lack of sway bars

Take it to a spring shop and have them rearch it if there are no broken leaves.

you run no swaybar?:dontknow:

if so, that can damage the springs when you "power off" from a light, it loads up on that passenger rear. thats how i really broke mine :party0010: but thats with a 4.7L stroker and I was racing a couple cars... its more fun when a lifted jeep beats a pimped out car [cheers] [36]

That must be it! dang why'd I even post this? :confused0006:

gonna try one single add a leaf on the passenger side on the bottom of the pack. It'll probably lean the other way:ballsmack

No, no sway bar, just when I leave town or extended highway I'll hook it up. That makes sense though
