We can all find stuff to make fun of each other about.

Like making fun of spokes for his lift issues and selling different jeeps.

Or Back in Black, maybe i find it funny that you didnt check the inside of your axles you recently bought before you bought them, if that was you i remember seeing pics from i recall it looking like a european mud bath in there

Maybe you not having the sense to check the diffs should demote you to noob status?

Im not taking shots at anyone here even if it seems it. Just pointing out that everyone can benifit from a little critisism at times, none of us are all knowing. The bitching back and forth is getting childish.


So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

Being in the middle of an axle swap yourself, i think you have tons of knowledge to offer. I wouldnt say you shouldnt post.

i can understand why you want to send the lift back on principle, dealing with arrogant jerks who are suppose to represent the product you purchased always sucks.

but i tell ya, if it were me, i'd take one look at the amount of work to pull the lift off and say ***k it......i'll deal with it. but then again i have just finished 4 axle swaps recently so i'm a little burnt out on wrenching right now.......

Yeah, I woke up ready to pull it and the first thing that came to find was that I didn't have stock uca! So that idea went out the window. I may try and tweak it for my liking better. The sky is black, so its not happening today.

Could probably pull some stock LCAs at a junkyard for cheap. I would cut the lift off with a sawzall and send it back to them in pieces... Oh yeah, you want your money back forgot that part.

i looked at shipping prices, UPS wanted almost $500 to send it al back!!! so needless to say im keeping the lift. i just finished rotating the little shims on the leafs, now they are facing the right way.

before:

after: (didnt tighten u-blots yet) that is how much it will shim it.

Before:

After:


its better, but i think it still needs to me shimmed more. the jeep DEFINATLY rides better now that the leafs/rear dont have that added stress on them. much much much better!!

the front still gets a slight death wobble and doesnt feel right. im thinkin the track bar bracket is egged out causing the track bar to have slop. also wondering if i need a new pitman arm drop to help equal out all the steering components.

here is the DS angle at the SYE... think i may have to install the t-case drop or a longer shaft to help reduce the angle.
