Ok well first off, sorry everyone for freaking out. It was just one of those days yesterday!

That said, I loosened the leads and that helped alot there were some burrs on the springs so I filed tem off and that helped too. So the bak is ok now. Slightly stiffer than my other one. And the front is washy because the trackbar bracket on the frame is egged out I discovered. So I tightened it up and thr helped a little but there still is slop. So I'll have to get a new racket, than the jeep should be set!

And yes I had a good alignment done. They had to adjust one uca to get it right but oter than that it's good.


Like I said before sorry for being a little girl haha it was just a day when everything that could go wrong did.

Hell...at least the 3GS (which is free now).

Anyway, yeah, kinda figured just in the first few days of reading (although somewhat common knowledge for a long time gear head) that you spend endless hours readying, planning, testing, buying, installing, uninstalling, *****ing, fantasizing, wheeling, etc. before it ever is right. And just about the time you get it right....you want to go higher (lift kit wise).

I'm a noob to Jeeps (and 2000 Red Jeep like yours...3" RC lift just arriving too). and I know this isn't even the start of things to come. But I look at like this: I need a capable truck that will get the job done and earn me money (via my business, not the Jeep itself). It may be a DD now, but with gas the way it is...I'll get a geo or something eventually to roll around town with.

Life may be short, but patience is truly a virtue.

Yeah...there likely is a ton of critics....from those that ARE NOT PAYING YOUR BILLS. Advice is appreciated, but not when it is dictated.
