AEV Tummy Tuck

I got my skid in today & was looking through the instructions. It mentioned some upper control arm adjustment may be necessary to correct any offset pinion angle. I was wondering if anybody that has one of these had to do that? I have adjustable uppers,just hoping it won't be necessary. Running a 4" kit if that helps. Thanks.

The tummy tuck is equivalent to about 2" more lift for the driveline so I would definitely check your rear pinion angle in relation to the driveshaft afterwards. I'd expect some adjustment would be necessary. I installed my SYE at the same time so couldn't say how much of an adjustment is needed.

I had to when I installed mine, but I was also installing a suspension lift at the same time so I can't say for sure that JUST the skid would require UCA adjusments. However, since you already have 4" springs with adjustable uppers, I'm guessing you have already dialed them in and you may not have to mess with it any further. Only one way to find out?! Besides, it's easy enought to adjust them, what's the issue? Are yours seized or something?

no they're not seized. i think aev sent the wrong instructions though. i've got a 2001 tj & the instructions say tj-rubicon model. it has how to remove the locker pump & shows a np241 tc. gotta call them tomorrow. the invoice says it's the correct part.
