Lu, have you tried giving her the old bounce test? You know, jump on the bumper a bit and then jump off and see if she keeps bouncing more than once. That'll tell ya pretty quick if you got bad shocks.

LU, those Dynabeads still working well for you? Figure you've had them on for a week or so. Any updates? At the rate I'm going, I might have those beadlocks on by next summer.

You havent done the front ones yet? Are they the ones that COULD be balanced normally? I'm thinkng I am just going to order 5 sets and do all my wheels at once.

Hard to be certain...but yeah, you'll probably need some shorter coils to level you out after moving the buckets back.

OlllllllO

Yea, hard to be sure until it's done. Just do it, install your 4" springs, take some measurements & then see what you need. Worst case you drive around looking like an idiot with a drag racin' Jeep like I did until your new springs arrive.

Purchased some new bilsteins tonight, got 12" travel front 5100s and 11" travel rear 5125s.

Also made a friend with the guy I bought my MTRs from, talked about doin some wheelin trips together and got on the topic of different mods he has installed on his rig. Discussed how he installed his entire clayton longarm kit himself and loves working on jeeps. Our convo eventually lead to me asking if he'd be willing to do all the welding for me on a 4link rear suspension. Being the nice guy that he is he said absolutely so now Im saving up for the following:

Genright 4 link rear kit


TNT rear 44 truss and outboarding kit



Thinking of using these poly brackets for the rear uppers on the truss


The plan is to correct the rear upper spring perches as well but retain the current 4" zone coils I have now and run without a sway bar until I can save up more for the Currie rear antirock.

Planning to purchase everything separately and collecting parts until I can afford it all and tackle the project all at once. Estimated timetable Im thinking is roughly a month or two depending on how work goes in the next couple weeks and if I get a favorable monthly commission check. We'll see but I'm excited!
