Bump stop issue!
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey everyone, I just got new coils put on a few weeks ago but noticed that the front left bump stop is hitting my coil. How do I fix this? It's already started to rust my brand new AEV coils:(.

Thank you!

Need to have a sleeve of some sort to prevent the coil from rubbing.

I shouldn't need a sleeve for it. It should be in the center. Just don't know how to fix it.

It may not be in the center at ride height after a lift but it shouldn't be like that. Do you have adjustable control arms? What is your caster? How does your front pinion look? Is axle centered with an adjustable trackbar?

My first inclination is that your axle isn't centered. Adjustable track bar? What coils did you have before?

Is the right bent to the other direction?

Either extend your adjustable control arms, or buy some longer control arms. There is no such thing as a sleeve to prevent coil rubbing.

Do I need to lift the jeep up to adjust the arms?

That would probably make the job easier.

Okay, I measured the distance on both arms and the left is a little shorter than the right. So I guess I will need to adjust it. I hope the arms adjust enough. They are RC and the last piece of my bad choice in a lift. Any idea of good arms if I can't get it to work?

How high did you lift it? We're they centered before the new coils? You might need longer control arms to re-center to axle. I dont know but it needs attention.

So I had a mechanic look at it. He is one I trust and one that knows his stuff. He is stumped. He measured both sides in tens of places and everything adds up to perfect. Even though there is clearly something wrong. He said the frame could be Diamond...but how? It's never been in an accident or damaged in any way. Anyone have any other ideas?

I also have a RC 4" long arm kit and noticed the same issue on my right bump stop. I seen this issue after I was wheeling and had the tire tuck in the wheel well pretty good which caused some tire rubbing. I felt it was caused from that. Just some food for thought.

Do you have adjustable Control Arms ? Did you extend them some ?

If you have fixed Control Arms, are they long enough for your lift height ? Looking at the single picture, I would say probably not long enough.

Do you have an adjustable Track Bar ? Is the front axle centered ?

wlo2000 08-04-2013 10:51 PM

It has adjustable arms but the new coils lifted it a bit more. The issue is that the current position makes the tires perfectly centered in the wheel wells. Would new arms help? What would a track bar do? I had a JKS one installed at the same time as the new coils.
