Welcome to the SITE OF SITES,rated #1 by Google.
04 LTD 3.7 auto
Skyjacker springs, Rancho shocks, 3 washer clevis, 1 extra isolator
Both front = 20 1/2
Both Back = 21 1/2
Finally got around to measuring mine...
02 Sport 4x4 3.7l auto
245/75 Treadwright MT/Rs
Daystar 2.5" spacers and 3/8" clevis lift
Stock springs and shocks all around, no rear spring isolators(going back in today)
Front and back both sides: 22"
Our KJ saw a really sexy '02 Libby with a hot looking blond driving it... And ours got excited!
When I got home it got taller by another 1.5 inches!
Oh, maybe that was me!
OME 927 HD spring
Rancho RSX 17505 struts
Boiler's top plate shims
Currently no clevis lift
Front height: 22"
OME 948 HD springs
Rancho RSX 17004 shocks
two extra lower isolators per side
Rear height: 23"
After settling in my DIY Frankie and adding additional spacer to the rear, I am now sitting at 23.75" in the front, 22.75" in the rear.
DIY Frankenlift is detailed over here:
Just Installed RRO UCA's and Do-it-urself Frankie
Rusty .75" spacer
Daystar top plate
Stock upper iso
22.75" L and R front on the money
2006 LIBERTY LIMITED w/ 70,000 miles
Added recieved hitch
18 1/2" on all four corners
Lift: (Added 2 weeks ago)
Front OME 926 (medium) / Rancho RSX struts
Rear OME 948 (medium) / Rancho RSX shock
21 1/2" on all four corners
Granted, it hasn't completely settled yet, and I probably had lost at least 1" to sag, but a solid 3" lift from before - not bad.
Even with no lift I would definately do it over again just for the vast gain in ride & handeling. Feels like a new car again.
Now for some new tires....
3/8" clevis lift
225.75.16 Goodyear Wranglers
Mopar skid plates
Front fender height 19.5"

(lol) He said carvertel.gif
So, it's been nine months, nine days and 9979.9 miles since installing the Frankenlift on our Liberty.
The measurements here reflect all the coil spring settling:
Front end: 22.25 inches*
Rear end : 21.25 inches*
*from bottom of front and rear fender flare to hub center of wheel.
I have MINIMAL rubbing only or lock to lock right hand steering.
Other than that, all is excellent!
You do know you folks are flying in the face of the designers.
I remember reading in that @#$#%^! manual that they chose the original suspension height for aesthetics.
2005 Renegade / 29,650 miles / Daystar 2.5" lift on stock springs, struts, and shocks.....No clevis or extra spacers added.....

Work was slow today so I did my OME/Rancho with 1 extra iso in rear and boiler plate in front and the rear is slightly higher than the front and the pass side rear is 3/4" higher than the driver side (measured with less than 1/4 tank of gas. I gassed up on my way home so I will measure again and write them down this time)
