Hi guys, my 09 Rubicon Unlimited has had a 2” lift from when I bought it, but I noticed that it appears to be sagging from the right hand front, now how can I be sure that it is the right hand front and not the right hand rear?

Make sure you are on very flat ground when you measure, as well as tire pressures being equal. Could be the shocks are going as well.

Measure from the ground to the fender, the fronts should be close to the same and the rear should be close to the same measurement.
The right hand front is definitely lower than the left side. You can even see the coil spacing is different :/(

There are a number of things that could make a corner of a vehicle lower. I suggest taking it to a shop that deals in 4 x 4s as much as possible, or at least trucks.

If the coil isn't obviously broken, that is the best I can tell you. Probably a worn out coil, but maybe not and if you try and diagnose it yourself, you may end up spending much more in chasing the problem down.
