It may not be sticking, one set of pads could have grease on them, one set could be worn differently, could be getting more pressure in one of the calipers,one of the rotors may be worn differently, could be lots of things.

Well then I wouldn't think it would be brakes I mean the only thing that happened is your axle moved slightly over to the right side of the jeep when the spacers were taken out but that's it I mean I put my 2.5" in and the alignment never changed except caster and never had any pulling issues

it drove fine the last 3 times ive aligned it on my own. never had any odd tire wear either. i think its my wheel bearing its starting to make a bit of a noise when taking sharp left turns at speed. i just dont have the time this week to mess with it. with finals and then having to work on top of it i probably wont get to it until Sunday if im lucky

Tire carrier looks great. That's same way I would have built latch. I just wish there was a way to make the bumper cuts look better, but oh well. How much you have invested in the carrier so far or what you think total cost will end up being.

Surprised you didn't put it on the other side. Seems like the line of side isn't too bad though.

Looks bad@ss!

Makes sense I guess. I say that but when mine is built I will probably do what you did.
