Front sits alot taller than the rear now. Damn. But I have a pretty wicked gangsta lean. I think my spring hanger on one side is farther forward than the other making it sit taller on one side. Good thing I only tacked them. My axle also looks like its not lined up under the jeep. Like the right wheel is farther back than the left so thats why im gonna move the mount back to even it out and hopefully get rid of the gangsta lean. I have pics but jf went all gay with the size limit

Get a photobucket and host em. Easy as pie, and way better than teeny tiny JF uploads.

Ok so I think my problem actually may be that the stock cast in spring perch is taller than the perch I welded on. Hence the gangsta lean. I measured the mounts again and they are only a quarter of an inch in difference so its not that

Yea all my measurements are within a quarter inch of where they should be. I still havent setup a photobucket but I got the jeep driving. I built a z link draglink just temporary until I could afford crossover steering. I think my z link is bending when I turn the wheel so my steering is loose. Also instead of bump steer I think the z link is bending when the suspension cycles so its like bump steer but very frequent and scary. Definately gonna beef up the draglink.

Im building a crossover steering arm today. Gonna weld it on and maybe bolt it down to the knuckle too. Make fun all you want but I think it will hold. Im gonna put the knuckle in the oven on 500 degrees for like 45 minutes and then weld it with my mig welder then put it in on 150 degrees to cool down slow. Probably gonna make the arm out of 1/2 inch flat stock. Also yesterday I started putting tj flares on so I could be legal. And heres a flex pic
