    Front spring bowing on 2.5 Evo Enforcer Overland kit

    Anyone with this lift have an issue with the front springs Bowing? I finished up the install a few days ago and noticed my front passenger spring is making significant contact with the bumpstop. Making a nasty banging sound when I hit a dip in the road straight on. The coils are seated correctly.

    I gave Evo mfg a call and they told me that they have been fixing this issue with a spring correction kit like rancho has available.

    I had an enforcer lift on my JK and didnít have this problem.

    It looks like the rancho spring isolators or the rock krawler isolators might correct the bow. They both look about the same. Iíll give the ranchos a try. I wish I had a set on hand when I did the install.

    I've got the same issue with my 2.5" Evo Enforcer Overland lift. Front passenger spring is bowing and making contact with the bump stop extension. Aftermarket isolators were recommended by Evo based on what the shop that did the install is telling me.

    Mine look (and sound, clunk) the same, I might try the Rancho correction isolators and see if that helps.

    Good to know info. I will likely do the EVO 2.5 lift too. What actual lift are you seeing?
