Default rear XJ leaf packs

I feel dumb asking this since I built the packs myself, but the rear end of my XJ sits uneven being higher on the driver's side than the other by about 3/4". Until I took out the front spacers it was closer to an inch! I just wanted to pick everyone's brain about how I could remedy this. The parts I started with had the same amount of arch to them and I'm using the same stock main leafs that the XJ came with. I know it's not a matter of them settling, since it's been to evart and the Badlands. Offroad, I don't notice any difference, but when it's sitting on level ground it has an obvious lean to it. If anyone has any input or knowledgeable experience in this area please PM me or coderedxj@yahoo.com


Thanks!

Eric

You mentioned pulling out the front spacers .. uneven spring rates in the front could cause this same condition. Have you measured heights in the front?
