    Sitting at 21.5 all the way around right now with the Daystar lift. What's the easiest and cheapest way to add another inch?

    Clevis lift (spacing out strut from clevis fork, 3/8" max) gives 3/4".

    Top strut plate from jba is 1/4" so gives 1/2".

    Kk clevis fork is 3/8" longer so thats 3/4" lift.

    I am on 927/948 OME springs and OME shocks and the height is approx.20" front and 21" back. Have you added a clevis lift/top plate spacer/rear upper isolator?

    No, I just replaced the coils and shocks. I got the heavy duty springs.

    Most likely recently replaced stock parts or worn springs and spacers for a "lift".

    Front:
    Removed the eight year old Rusty's lift 20 3/4 inches.
    Installed OME 927 and Bilstein #24-139168 plus 1/4 inch top plate got an alignment 21.5 inches both sides. I hope it does'nt drop any from there.

    Rear:
    Removed the Rusty's springs and shocks still at 20 3/4 inches.
    Installed the 948's in the rear with one extra upper isolator 21.5 inches.

    I just installed those coils and shocks in the front as well, no top plate, with an 1/8th inch clevis on the driver side, and I'm sitting at 22 up front, and without an extra isolator, with 948s and Bilstein 24-185660 shocks in the rear I'm stilling at 21.5. All of this before alignment. I will comment with new heights after the alignment is done, hopefully tomorrow at this point. I missed my window today before work.

    Indeed, after alignment my front instantly was 1/4"-3/8" lower. A quick clevis lift should "fix" that.

    So nearly a good inch lower than when new... must ride pretty harsh too, I know mine did with fewer miles on it (but more sag) than that.

    If you change clevis height after lift you should have your alignment checked again

    It's rather floaty. I definitely want to get an OME kit of some kind because I want a harder spring and shock setup. BUT, my car is already 6' tall and the parking garage I use is 6'2", so I'm afraid that even the most basic kit will lift my Jeep up too much and mean I have to take the roof rack off.

    Mine is 6'11" and my garage at home is 7'. I get nervous if my tire pressure is a little high... :D

    I have 12 months from initial alignment to get it checked and re-adjusted for any reason, regardless of the parts installed or what I change. Just drop it off, go eat some lunch and BK next door and pick it up in an hour or less.

    I need to cut out and replace my LCA bolts and lower balljoints anyhow.
