from the pics it looks as if it not only needs to come down but also be tilted forward away from the jeep a little. but i agree on black for sure

you couldn't fit your stock bumper on it with the guard? or did i miss something? i think it'll look good once you've got it on there right. my guard is from my previous 01 explorer sport...fit like a glove. but all the brackets had to be fabbed up.

I like that you gave a shot, but it looks like ****. Fitment is everything with brushguards (and there are very few I like), so if it fit better on the front, I'd say keep it.

whens the last time you had your tires rotated and balanced? if one of the fronts has a bad wear pattern and the other smooth it will cause dw....also im not really sure but imo you right front tire shouldn't have both - camber and - caster. i know they adjust the camber on the right sometimes to help with the crown of the road. but me personally...i like all of my caster and camber to be set evenly. i also like my caster to be more neutral as well...i've got mine around 2 degrees. but every jeep is a little different. but i'd ask about the - caster and - camber if i were you. maybe someone else will chime in.

What shape are your trackbar bushings in? from what I understand thats one of the main causes. If your control arm bushings are shot thats probably not helping lol

FWIW when I did my 4x4 swap I kept getting dw and I found out it was my trackbar bolt working its way loose on the axle side. Some locktite and its been good since but give it a good crank.

If they aligned it unless the shop that did it was crap I'd think it would be fine?

looking good btw

so those numbers on that sheet dont look too bad? also i figured since i got my upper arms i put my front driveshaft back in and it has reduced vibes and it feels alot stronger. ive noticed though that when im going down a hill not giving gas i hear a humming noise also say im going 45 and idleing down a hill my speedomoter will bounce a little bit idk if this is normal or not
