Wrangler JK Mopar Lift Kit Lean - Spacer or Springs?

Hey guys,

I have a 2012 JKU with the Mopar factory lift kit. It leans quite a bit to the right side (1-inch). On our last trip with a fully packed car I noticed that the right rear wheel rubs on the flare when flexing through bumps. My theory about it is, that the dealership probably put the the springs in the wrong way as the fuel tank and armory is on the right side and therefore the spring (rate) needs to be a bit longer (harder) on that particular side. Probably followed the instructions for the LHD version of the Jeep.

Anyone had the same issue? Would it be better to:

1. get a spacer for the right side to maintain the same height and would you do both front and rear (think the front is okay though, need to measure it).
2. Swap the springs over on the rear
3. replace the springs with something better (actually very happy with the lift, been driving a stock JK which was way worse on handling corrugated roads)

Thanks in advance

I would swap them over on the rear see if it Improves, If so look at doing the same on the front. I would n't replace anything unless it is required.

I Have never worked on Jeep but so i am not sure what your in for, but it's cost effective if doing it yourself and i like that.

Yeah I agree mate... Swap the springs over first and see before you go spending money on new equipment... Should be a basic job, coils are easy... unbolt the shocks and jack it right up til the spring falls out :) if you don't have two jacks/can't do both sides at once, just put a solid block in place of the coil to hold the chassis while you swap the other one out...
