[QUOTE=sgtduke;29160313]2006 TJ Rubicon on 37's with the RE 5.5 long arm tri link lift and a 1" BL, just FYI I'm in the process of dropping down to 4" coils and 35's and eventually away from the RE 5.5. The 37's plays havoc on parts like ball joints and u-joints on the stock D44 axle, steering components etc.... All that being said I don't rub anywhere. I will add some photos of the rear at full flex tomorrow.]
Are you running the stock steering setup? I have the tera knuckle with a custom high steer setup. It's been on my Jeep for 3 years and no problems with the heims or anything. I don't see 37's changing that as my buddys with 37's on their broncos don't have any issues either. I change my axle joints annually as part of my maintenance plan, so not too worried about the u-joints. I didn't know that about the ball joints. How often do you change them out? I'm actually planning on maybe changing the knuckle out to get a floating front end, which will change my bolt pattern to 5on5.5, but that won't fix the ball joint issue.
I appreciate the pics and I think the pic of the rear being flexed up into the wheel well would be very helpful. Based on your pics, I think I'd have enough room to run chains with the 37s.
Built 97 TJ with WAY too much $ into it...
