I got my 44044s flipped and the ride is so much softer. Not sure if it is because of the springs or because my cheap shocks are less effective because of the more mellow angle. My 33s are touching the back of the wheelwell that I already trimmed, I'm gonna have to cut out quite a bit more for the 35s. My driveshaft and pinion angle seem to be fine and I think i lost some small vibes on acceleration. I think having the perch farther back on the arch of the spring lowered the angle and compensated for the stretch. I'm very happy, I would definitely recommend these springs if you can fit them!
Sweet I want a pair for my fronts. That turned great!!
Hell yeah man I'm really happy with them. I'm not sure exactly how much lift they gave over my old springs because I didn't measure first but my Jeep sits pretty level now. I'd say they are the same as the BDS 3.5". I still need to wheel them to break them in. All I've done is some test flexes and probably 40 miles since my girlfriend drove it to work a couple times last week.
I tried to do a little wheeling today and realized that my front pass shackle hanger broke again. It didn't break all the way through but I wanted to be able to drive it home so I didn't push it. I'm gonna order a pair from Ruffstuff tomorrow.
I was tired of having an impact that wouldn't break lug nuts loose so I ordered an Ingersoll Rand 231C. $115 on Amazon prime and my company covered it since I'll be using it to rotate tires on my work vehicles. This thing is badass. It's heavy as hell but it zipped off a lug not on my Duramax quickly and it was able to torque the others down tighter than the tire shop set them. I was looking at the Harbor freight Earthquake but for $20 more I figured I'd go with a known brand.
Jeep is looking great. I have an earthquake that survived serious abusive behavior. One of the better things you can get at HF as long as you have a coupon. IR im sure is better though especially for $20. I'm gonna get an Aircat when mine dies.
What days are you going to Moab in September? We are gonna be there the 6th through 13th.
Thanks Clint! I had heard good things about the Earthquake but I don't have a Harbor Freight within 4 hours from me so Amazon Prime made sense. I was worried that my compressor didn't have enough CFM but it is working well. Curious to see if the hi-flo fittings will make much of a difference.
