So a couple of weeks ago I noticed my xj was lower on the drivers side than the passengers side, I assumed one of my leafs was just breaking in faster than the other, then when I was trimming my fenders I noticed the angle of the passenger and drivers side shackle was very different, the drivers side was way to the back but the passengers side was fairly straight down but a little to the back. Moving on, when I got my fenders trimmed and my new tires on, I went out for a test run, and after some flexing the shackles are at the same angle and my jeep is back level. So I guess my questions are, was the shackle just stuck in an awkward position and how can I prevent this from happening again?
I will make sure to check the torque on them soon, I think at that time the shackles are going to be replaced anyways. On a side note, I also need to re-bump stop now, and I have read a bunch of threads that are all pointing me in different directions, is there any way I can estimate what I will need without having to measure exactly what I need? Because its kinda tough when I am normally only home for a few days every couple of weeks and would like to get some ordered ASAP. I have 4.5" lift with trimmed fenders (normal trim in the front and cut and fold in the back, both about 1-2" trim), 33x12.5's with 4" bs, if that helps
Alright, thanks for the insight, I guess next time I go home I will just have to take some measurements, probably just going to do hockey pucks up front and the 4.1" extended in the back with whatever spacing I need extra added in with tubing.
