    18 JLUR driver side sits 1" higher than pass side

    Quick background...2018 4dr JLUR. Mopar 2" lift. Cooper STT Pro's 37'' tires, all four same pressure.

    I've noticed, while standing behind the jeep, the drivers side sits higher than passenger side. I thought perhaps it was an illusion, but I used measure tape from fender to the ground and in fact drivers side is at least 1" higher front and rear on driver side.

    Any idea why?? I would only think springs??

    I think the JL springs are side specific... maybe they were installed wrong? Just a thought.

    I double checked. Tags are still on the springs. 2.0L in the directions shows LR and RR are different numbers. They are installed correctly.
    LF and RF show different springs for 3.6L. But... there is another spring on the chart that shows quantity 2, for 2.0L, and the # is the same. Kit sent me these two springs. SO...both fronts according to Mopar chart are same spring. And they are installed that way.

    My guess would be is the gas tank is on the passenger side and is full, plus maybe three springs are set up top account for the eight of the driver in the seat

    Dang, I knew this was common on JKs but thought the JLs had corrected the Jeep Lean

    Just make sure it is not big Uncle Eddie because the results could be skewed 😂

    I would think if this is true...ALL vehicles would be higher on driver side. Before Mopar springs were installed the Jeep was pretty even.

    And gas tank is on driver side.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
