Hope someone can help me.
I purchased a 1997 Jeep Cherokee in September of 2000 with 64,000 mi. and it
came with a suspension lift.
I did some research and found out the suspension lift is from Trailmaster.
Now 5 years later I've noticed that my Cherokee seems to be sagging in the
rear. I Talked to the people at Chrysler on measurements of a stock Cherokee from center hub to bottom of the flair, they told me 17.5" front and 17" rear.
I've done the measurements, and I have 21.5" front 19.5" rear, which tells me that the rear is sagging by 1.5".
I contacted Trailmaster for some specs. on their 4" suspension lift,
the front is 4" but the rear is 3" that's how they manufacture their
suspension lifts for this particular application.
I used a bumper jack and jacked up the rear of the vehicle,
which brought it up to the 20" mark, then I tried 1.5" which
brought it up to 21" from the initial 19.5" and it looked great at the 21" mark.
I don't have an SYE on this vehicle and I don't have any vibrations, at this time
but I'm also worried about the driveshaft angle if I go to high on the rear
lift. I have the original u-joints on this vehicle, current mileage is
108,200 and I don't haul anything in this vehicle.
The leaf pack has a total of of 6 (six) leafs.
Any suggestions out there.
