Default Leveling and spacers

Need some education. I have 2008 JKUR that has OME shocks and what is reported to be a 2" lift. Maybe I can assume it is an OME 2" lift??? Question is this- the front of the Jeep sits about an inch lower than the rear of the Jeep. I do not like the rake and want to level out. I am looking at the Teraflex 1" spacers but am not certain if I can add these to an existing lift? Does it matter? Will the spacers sit on top of the coils just as easily as if they were stock springs?

Yes, you can add a spacer just as easily as if it were stock. It may be helpful to take some measurements to see what you actually have..

Agree, especially if just talking about a thin spacer to level things out. No issues.

Thank you. I see what appears to be a cup /spacer/cap at the top of the spring already. Would a lift kit supply a cap at the top of the spring between the top of perch and spring. The lift seems to high to be just a budget spacer lift... This is what is throwing me. I will take a photo and post.

Figure you're referring to the normal rubber'ish isolator that goes between the top of the spring and the upper perch. Just pop your leveling spacer between the isolator and the upper perch. Snap a pic though. Just curious to confirm you don't already have some sort of spacer in place.

I did confirm that it is an OME lift.

k, that is definitely NOT the factory isolator I was thinking. That looks more like a 2.5" spacer puck.

WIll do. Both front and rear springs have OME tags on them and there are OME shocks all 'round. I would assume that this would be an OME lift. This is why I was left scratching my head over what already looks like a spacer. Maybe earlier OME lifts (pre-ARB?) used this in their lift design?
