Everybody sucks except me

Edit: Not gonna troll through Spoke's build thread anymore, i feel bad...i mean seriously if you look at it youll see alot of *****ing and moaning, i suggest everyone else does the same, i mean it is a build thread, not a chatroom.


Spokes, as far as your deathwobble goes, have someone shimmy the steering wheel back in forth and take a look at the front end and see what/if anything has play in it. Let us know what you find.

In an anti-trolling effort, I will attempt to be beneficial. This ^ is a good thing to do. You would be surprised what exposes itself when you have someone else go bat**** crazy at the wheel while you looked. Fixed a lot of DW woes that way in the past. Make sure you grab the parts while you do this too. Even if you dont see anything, a lot of times you can feel it and single out the problem that way.

I think if you just add 1 or 2 more steering stabilizers it will cure your DW

Hows your LCA bushings? Im sure you have new LCA's from the 4.5", but you never know. You get the fixed lowers or X-Flex? X-Flex joints needed to be retightened after some driving.

Im currently toed in noticeably, and have a TRE at pitman arm going on its way out, and still have no DW. I feel for you. DW like yours can be frustrating.

You can do this yourself with a tape measure and it is free. Start with it set to 1/8" toed in and see what that does.

So today I had time and motivation. So me and a buddy did some fine tuning on the jeep. Measured it and after an "alignment" it was an inch off, the left side was an inch more out, and the lower BJ was ahead of the upper due to the arms being adjusted wrong at the shop. So I shortened the arms to get lower BJ below uppers and made the front end even. So now it is even. Drives smoother and no dw yet. The wheel is off center cause of moving the wheel. So ill get it aligned at a proper shop and I should be good to.go!!! (Hopefully)


Than I get to do it all over again when I swap in a hp30 lol
