there was a problem and you were able to contact the manufacture and got helpfull information????? i thought only RC had problems with their lift kits and everyone else was perfect...

Anyway sarcasam off.....

Looks nice, definately 33's in your future. I have HD shackles with about 3/4" in them and allmost thinking about going to 35's vs. 33's beacuse the difference is only like $10 a tire. Alread have my rear fenders trimmed for a little more room.

Hmmmm, still concerned about those shackle angles, hopefully the springs will continue to settle.

Lift issues aside..that is one ugly jeep. I mean, come on. And that interior? Trust me on this, it's hideous. The pictures convey a sense color blind grotesqeness. Yuck. I just went to my garage, looked at my identical color combo, and.....nevermind!
Cool jeep. Glad it all worked out. I went one step Hallowneenier (?) and added the tri-color orange/rust/yellow Renegade stripes. Wish I stopped where you did! Serioiusly, very classy.

Yes, that is a nice looking jeep. I have the kit on my 84 for four years now and love it. Still stiff and flex's good. I am now up to 35's and still have plenty of room in the wheel arch. Wife now needs a ladder now but it's all good...

In a world full of copy cats, be an original...

The suspension looks like it's fine. I'm sure it'll settle more as you drive it. Your caster and driveline angles may shift as it settles in.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

looks good, i would recommend a set of currie shackles. ive got a set and they are sturdy and about 3/4" longer so its not too much but it gives it a bit of a boost and better flex. also the curries are greasable
