You do have all the track bars and sway bars off, right?
You can't really test articulation with one jack. Put a jack under the right rear near the tire, and another under the left front near the tire. Simulate two opposite corners holding up the Jeep and the other two just drooping, like really happens on the trail. Don't expect to see things the same with any leaf spring as the hot 4link coilover super flex photos you see all over.
The trouble I have is the rear axle doesn't move much. I'm not sure how to explain it but the Jeep several times has felt like it wanted to tip over on slight obstacles, trail buddies who were behind me said the rear didn't move, that if the right tire went up, so did the left instead of going the opposite direction. The entire axle only goes up and down, not at an angle and only a few inches at best. Does that make sense?
I don't have track or sway bars.
The 4 wheel parts store has a articulation ramp. When I put it back together I may run over there and test it, maybe get some pics of what it is doing.
