hopefully that alignment will solve the DW. mine is going in for a rotation and balance to try and solve mine...still waiting on my control arm bushings from casanova too. i've got that shop on my board now. hopefully i wont have to use them lol. get some pics of those uppers and post em for us...ive been toying with ordering the rears from IRO so i can get some more lift and tires..haha.

i hope so too man, if this doesnt fix the dw im gonna be pissed. do you think if i put bigger tires on it will make it more stable and not as bumpy of a ride/not fall into death wobble easier?

no...the bigger tires that wear faster and are harder to balance will make it worse. did you check to see if the bolt hole on the axle trac bar mount was circle....it may be egged out a little and causing the DW. i really dont feel like the upper ca's are causing your dw but you never know with a jeep. im almost positive mine is coming from my lca bushings. but i went ahead and bought the trac bar mount and new trac bar bushings just to be safe. i didnt have the DW when i used a trac bar bracket up front...but now i have it with the RE trac bar. but i talked to josh at IRO today and he's going to get me fixed up here shortly to get my RE trac bar to my HD mount. so well see what happens i suppose. have you retorqued all of your lift bolts yet? you may try to do that...just loosen them a touch and then retorque them. especially the control arms.

i meant the control arm bushings but some tires are def in order. I've been trying to find some decent mud grips for a 16" rim on there too...found some 255/80's for 100$ but the guy hasn't emailed me a comparison pic with a penny or anything.

got my car back yesterday it drives sooo good now!! it was a little shaky on the highway but no more dw i guess its just how a lifted vehicle drives. i scored an xj brush guard for free so i got some acetone and cleaned all the old paint off and got to this chrome. the way its on right now is kind of a mockup i still need two more brackets that will make it come down more and look flush. i also have two pieces of metal that fit perfectly on the corners to make it look more flush i need to make a trip to home depot for some hardware.

lemme know what you guys think of the bumper its gonna come down some and the bumper not the brushguard is painted black now (last pic) should i keep the brush guard chrome or paint it black?
