The effect of lifts on your steering, drivetrain, etc.

A few months ago I put together an article from the individual responses I've made and the topics that seem to repeat over and over. I finally got finished working on the CJ for long enough to write it.

Over the past 6 months and a deployment, I added several new sections, to include: how leaf suspensions behave (stock setup and with suspension reversal kit) and coil/link suspension.

Be patient, you'll download a PDF article... (updated 26 Feb 12)

Steering-and-suspension-basics

I deleted the resolution XPS version... the two versions took too much room.

I must have gotten to it before Copper broke it cause I have a copy as well. I probably have space on my web hosting service to post it up.

I was hosting the document for Gojeepin but ran out of room on my web server. See new links in post #1.
