my stock suspension is SHOT

well after a lil poken round. i noticed my kk leans left. on top of that my drivers front bump stop is shredded. the suspension is sagging so much that the cv axels are angled up. on both sides i could barley squeeze a finger in between the upper control arm and the bump stop. now my question is....is this normal 25k miles later?

No it isn't. Not sure how old your Lib is, but any suspension components that fail after 25K should be removed and replaced under warranty.

Edit: Unless of course, you have been thoroughly beating it to death off-road. In which case, yes maybe 25K miles of hard off-road use will use up a suspension. But, we have Liberty field vehicles at my work, and they get used off-road quite a bit, and we have never had any problems with the suspensions (at least not like you describe anyway).

Most vehicles lean towards the driver side because of the drivers extra weight sagging the coils and on the KK the gas tank is on this side which is another 121 pounds of fuel plus the weight of the tank itself.

Right, the shape of the vehicle is what makes this more noticeable.

The CVs angling UP is normal though, ALL KKs are like that, and so is mine.
