I have been speaking to them on the phone since the second wrong spring. Emailing and PMing would take a little more time and my jeep has been on jackstands in the garage for two weeks now. So calling I can express more urgency

Turns out skyjacker packed Jk springs in tj boxes and sent them out to quadratec so all the tj spring boxes were quarantined because they all had the wrong springs in them. So a correct spring will be sent to me overnight sdirectly from skyjacker. Man I can't wait until this is over.

I got my new seat covers today. And they are just that, seat covers. My last covers fit perfectly and had padding everywhere and these ones are so thin. I didn't expect much by what I paid but I was hoping for better. But I am glad to get rid of that faded red/pink seats and now these are all black with a white pin stripe and jeep logo. I'll post pictures later because it makes me resize them and ****.

Yes. With he first set I thought someone in the warehouse messes up but I figured something else was up wheni got the third wrong set. Quadratec was great on the phone and getting them next day air is awesome.

Yeah I've been happy with them in the past. Something was fishy.

I need a new tailpipe badly but Im not so sure I want to go through the hell getting this one off and a new one on. Usually I try and do everything myself but this might just be worth letting the muffler shop do. Just not sure what it would cost me

Got the spring in, got the shock back on...butttt there is a major stall concerning the LCA. I could not get that arm to line up with the axle for my life. I put the upper bolt in, didnt tighten it but I had it hanging from the top, then put the lower part in the mount but I just can't get the holes to line up. I tried pushing the axle forward but I still couldn't get it to line up good enough and even if I did there was no way I could put the bolt in at the same time. I had to get it out of the garage bc my dad was ready to kill me for the jeep being in there so long so I put the tires back on and rolled it out of the garage back into the driveway. So now I have to figure someway to get that arm in. I jacked the axle up a little at a time and even that didn't do anything to help me. Ugh sooo frustrating.

Whats even more frustrating is my jeep still has that gangsta lean on that side. I know the LCA isn't in yet but I don't think that's going to give it enough height to even it out. I have no idea why it's leaning so much to that side and idk what to do about it but it's so noticeable it's stupid

This lean on my jeep is bothering me so much. I started thinking, if I replaced my spring and it isn't the spring, could it be a body mount? I don't see what else could be causing this. Both the mounts in the very front look the same and look to be fine. So I took pictures of the second body mount, the one right behind the wheel well. I took a picture of the mount on the passenger side, and the driver side. It is leaning towards the passenger side. Maybe one of them is bad? Or is torqued too much? I did have to remove them to put my rockers on..

first pic is passenger side and second is the driver side

Is it a rear spring? is it clearly coming from the front?

I had some body mounts that had started to cave in and when I fixed them they basically crumbled...but I didn't have any lean

EDIT: one front spring is different to compensate for the torque of the engine...could you have the wrong spring on the driverside front?

EDIT: I think the taller one is supposed to be on the driverside...so that would be right....are the rear springs right?

It is clearly coming front the front. I did measurements and the difference in the front from the passenger and driver side is significant. The lean itself is very easy to see and the space between my tire and flare makes it even more obvious, well lack of space on the passenger side. The springs are not side specific.

The rear springs look to be fine. It's the front that shows significant lean

I could be wrong, but they should be side specific, I know the factory springs are & a lot of aftermarket springs are. A longer spring on the front driverside and rear passenger side to compensate for the torque from the engine.

Other than that, idk...just start measuring things and see if something is bent. The body mounts look pretty good.

I would get real annoyed at the lean too

I actually measured my spring that I took out the new springs that I received and they all measure the same. They are skyjacker springs. And even if the driver side is supposed to have taller springs for the torque, that would mean I would have the springs in the right place. And I can't imagine it would cause such a lean.

Plus, this lean did not always exist and I've had this lift in my jeep for over two years. So Im not convinced with it having to do with springs in the wrong spot haha. This is something recent. It's bothering me so much. If its not the springs, the shocks, sway bar links or the body mounts..then I really don't even know where to look next
