Keep in mind I have owned it and been building it for 10 years. I or my friends do 98% of the work so labor is cheap. I am not rich by any means I just do one project at a time.

Well this thread has been here for a while, I might as well post my jeep in here too...

This pic was taken when the lift was just installed, a 2 inch BDS lift with no lift daystars and 31x10.5 inch BFG mudterrains
This is the current setup with the springs all nice and broken in


and finally the flex shots.
The 31s rub just a little at full flex. Any bigger and I would be in trouble. Ohh and the bump stops are useless now.

You've got quite a bit of downtravel hiding in there. Try removing the shocks and measuring for new ones. Your spring clamps are probably also to tight. If it doesn't see much trail time, then disregard previous statements.

Well it does see the trail quite often but its also my daily driver. That and I tend to take pictures right after I wash the thing. New shocks I thought of but loosening the spring clamps I haven't. Thanks for the tip.

This may sound dumb, but what are the spring clamps?

Also, do you get less flex if your u-bolts are really tight? When I was installing my lift kit, I was following the instructions of the Rubicon Express booklet. I torqued it down to what they said. Later, I looked at the Procomp U-bolt instructions, and they had around 20 ft/pounds lower for the suggested tightness.

Is it a bad thing that the ends of all 8 u-bolts in the back are slightly bend outwards?

Tighten those U-bolts down good, they don't affect flex, and they will break off the center pin on the spring if they shift. The spring clamps are the clamps about half way between the center of the spring and the end of the spring that hold the leaves together. Most aftermarket leaves have a U shaped clamp with a bolt at the top to hold them. If you loosen that bolt a little, the leaves can move more freely. As for your u-bolts being bent outwards, I guess I'd have to see a picture. If your u-bolts are cocked at an angle, then I'd say you should get them perpendicular to the axle. If they are just bent from hitting stuff, get an angle grinder and cut them off at the nut like you should have right away

Thanks, and yea you are right about how I should have cut the bolts at the nut before. I have scraped a little with those bolts, but they were bent out after I first tightened them. The problem is that I only have a Saw-zaw, and it would take forever to cut 16 bolts down to the nut. Would a grinder be much faster?
