Some 1.25" spacers would remedy your issue..

Can you take a picture of how you mounted the tab on the axle.

Curious to see a shot from the rear of the jeep looking toward the front and how the link was angled from the arm down to the tab.

Yeah I will when I get home tonight. The heim on the rod was barely making contact with the spring. Not sure I could get them any closer

If that pic is ride height you really need to shorten that rod and get it closer to level at ride height

Long term plans on hold. Looks like baby number 2 is on the way. Ordered a set of spacers so hopefully this does not happen again

Thanks guys. Cant believe there is another little one on the way.

I installed the spacers tonight, and put on the Metal Cloak TB. I know I will have bump steer still, but this is a hell of a lot better than the RE junk.



Took it for a drive today. Everything seems tighter. I think there was some play in my old track bar.

I think I like the new wider stance too
