why steering wanders
I read the post about caster and all the problems a lift kit can make. Just got through installing a RE4.5 extreme lift with a 2.5 degree shim in the back and a 2 degree shim in the front that was included in the kit. I assume this was to help drive shaft angles will it also fix the camber problem. Anyone ran into any problems with this lift. I haven't got the body or the tires back on so know would be the time. I might just run it as is and see how well it handles. Its a jeep with 33's I don't expect it to handle like a sports car and I'm not going much over 65 in it anyway. I would love to see some pics of this lift on a cj it may be sometime next year before I have the body painted and back together. thanks jc
