yea that's what I figured. I don't think I need limiting straps for the shocks or any other components, so I'll just lengthen the connecting rods on the AR.

Dan, when you say it "flipped over", you're saying the "sharp" part of the anti rock with the holes facing towards the back of the jeep rotated 180 and is now facing forward?? I can't picture that

Wow that's pretty wild lol. You should call currie and see if they've ever seen anything like that, maybe you've just discovered a hidden issue!

The arms should be horizontal or slightly above that.

Just got back from shopping. Picked up a new Milwaukee drill, and Milwaukee 4 1/2 angle grinder. Milwaukee drill bits, grinding, cutting and sanding disc's, a new measuring tape, new set of punches and chisels. And a new bag to carry all of it in. Spent just over $400 but it was money we'll spent. All my old stuff was a bit worn out.

When wheeling with the wife. Found a couple of cool old mines. One big enough to swallow the jeep. Beautiful weekend for wheeling.
