misalignment bushings,, and also IRO uses the same adjustable control arm for front/rear. normal stock use is fine but what I just found out is that when you move your rear axle back 2-3+ inches they are adjusted to far out (even tho they say they have 6+ inches of adjustment). If I would do it again (and I might anyway) I would go with IRONMan adj lowers with the bend and tell him to make then a few inches longer. and IRO adjustable rear -arm..

I can post a few pics if you want.

Edit:
No I did not do the other mod as you did.... but i might just do it now

4.5in up front/5.5in in rear on short arms

Adjusted to rear stock length


Adjusted all the way out


The reason I am moving the axle back so far is for my 37's




Front test fit

I'd like to see the pictures of the IRO arms. I'm only at 3 inches of lift so the axle wouldn't have to be pushed all that far. Control arms are probably in the fairly distant future. But that'd be another vote for the iron man control arms. Posting pictures is always good.

The air box mod was easy and probably helps haha. I'm not sure if ill cut that tube part out.

Yeah you got a lot of lift and had to push the axle wayyyy back. I guess that's why the started to max out. Thank you for the pictures man.

Okay guys, another Jeep buddy needs some help.

Specs/Details:
-1994 YJ
-2.5 Liter 4 Cyl
-Was running fine last year (about 10 months ago)
-Did not run for that entire time
-Jump started it and then started up with out much issue.
-Will rev up with out an issue, BUT the issue is ---> under load it will fall on its face and stall out.

-Has fresh gas
-He had put Iridium spark plugs in it. (I had told him that copper plugs would be best, though)

I have told him to check:
-Fuel Filter
-Fuel Pressure
-Run some cleaner through it.

Anything else you guys can think of or suggest?

Here is the front drive shaft. Those pieces fell off immediately when I took the straps off the front. No beating or hammering at it. Just unbolted and it fell. The rzeppa joint is basically maxed out. When it is on a lift and the axle droops, it goes into ultra death mode. I will have the front drive shaft out for while so more pics can be taken if needed. I have class and then I will do some highway speed test driving later this afternoon.

I would take that over to the YJ thread. We could guess all we want but really those guys would be able to help faster. I would definetly check the fuel pressure.

1. What happened to that u-joint?
2. Can I just put that back in there?
3. I do not know 100% if that was causing the vibes yet. I was only able to get to about 50 mph today. I think that the vibes are actually still there. It may be a wheel still out of balance. *mad*
4. Still can not confirm 100% on vibes because I have not been on the highway.

I'm sure that bad seal did it in, see how it was cracked? Probably had no grease in it did it?
