2" bds lift

So I just finished the rear of my 2" lift...mostly. I can't get the axle to rest flat on the springs. It is tilted back a small degree. Is this normal, or do I still have it misaligned a bit


If it ain't broke, try harder.

Just make sure the u-bolts are properly torqued and check the pinion angle. If it's a degree or two lower than the driveshaft you should be good to go. Since they are new springs they will need to settle and that can only happen if you drive it. To recap, check the u-bolt torque, drive it for a week, recheck torque. Do that a couple times and see how it settles in after that.

post a pic of the issue... Make sure you put the head of the locking pin or center pin...
But the axle will title some due to the angled shims... Idea with the pics below...

That last picture reminds me of what happened to my 1.5" BDS lift. The head of the pin wouldn't fit in the hole on the plate. I had to grind a little off the circumference of the pin and it fit right in after that.

Finished the rear. Now for the front. Takes forever when you only have an hour in the evenings to work on it.😠

Finished in time for the Fourth of July. I have noticed that with the transfer case that it shifts odd and that the steering needs some work. Also will need longer sway bar links and disconnects. However the ride is tons better than my worn out stock suspension

get a t case drop. I have the same lift with 1" booms and t case drop. It's so much nicer than the worn out stock I might also add, do the brake line relocation and buy some extended lines

I do have t-case drop installed. Extended brake lines are next thing to be done
