Hi
Jeep Cherokee KJ 2005 3.7L
Realize this has been talked about a lot, just trying to get my head around it so i get get this resolved. Not many suspension places here in Brisbane deal with jeeps. I have a 2.5" lift front end leans passenger side (Jeep right hand drive) aprox 12MM very noticeable on a slight incline. Is it the front that I need to adjust with a clevis spacer on passenger strut or do I need adjustment on the rear passenger shock?
I had ironman struts installed and they added their spacers to bring the height up front to match the rear just now need to level it.
Thanks for your time

How much difference is there ?
However much there is , divide in half and install that much clevis lift on the left front . Drive for a while then recheck, may have to add a bit to the left rear as well. Some do, some don't

Thanks TOM

12MM Difference at front
That would make it about 6MM strut spacer which I believe I can get from JBA Offroad .250" Clevis Spacer which is 6.35MM making it 12.7MM. So is this a simple install for a suspension shop Tom?
Also what is used for the rear if I need to increase is it a spring isolator or is there a specific spacer for the rear.
Like I said here its hard to get answers from Suspension shops wen it comes to the Cherokee if I had a wrangler different story
Thanks for your time

You could always just pry it up a little bit instead of tearing everything apart, tighten good and done. for the rear, depends on how much you need after you do the front.
