Installing a Frankenlift - Have Questions
I'm installing a Frankenlift II Premium with Upper A's by Al's Jeepin'.
So far I have the driver's front installed and torqued. A few questions:
1.) With everything attached and back together and the front suspension in its lowest position that the stabilizer link will allow it to go, the upper A arm contacts the strut spring and the knuckle contacts the new strut lower side bumper. This is of course with rotors and calipers only on the wheel flange...no tire installed. Is this typical? I realize once the tire is on and the suspension is off of the jack stands, these areas will not be in contact, but what happens when I hit a deep run....won't these areas collide and possibly damage each other?
2.) Per the suspension condition above, the back surface of the clevis brakcet is almost in contact with the inner CV joint boot. There is around 1/8" or less gap between the two surfaces. I'm concerned that with the boot in motion, it may stretch and hit the clevis bracket. Is this also typical?
3.) Upon putting the driver's side battery back together, I noticed that the front differential vent tube does not fit on the the strut top bolts anymore as the new Frankenlift top studs are about 1/2" or so too short. How anyone figured out a solution to this?
Thanks in advance for all your help!!
