Long story made short: I've been totally burned by the shop that did my build. I had an issue with the rear lower shock mounts only allowing for 2 9/16ths up travel. I took it back and they put new shock mounts on. They sent me pics to show that I now have 4.5" up travel, but the flex pics they sent are bothering me. I've also taken it out wheeling a few times, the wife and friends have taken pics and it seems as if the Jeep is leaning far too much and that the Currie A/R is almost non existent. I know (well, lets say I'm pretty sure) this isn't a Currie A/R problem. It has to be something else. The Currie is such a simple install. How could anyone bugger that up?
Here's a couple pics of me at flex. Does anyone else have the same build specs. that would allow me to compare the body lean? I have 4.5" RE springs, 10" Fox shocks, adjustable tri-link RE long arms, 35" TrXus MTs, and the Currie A/R. From what I've seen in many pics and read in many write-ups, I should only be losing about 4-5% of articulation as compared to fully disco'd.
What think you guys? Lets see your pics so I have a comparison.
Here's the pics the shop sent me to show they'd put the new mounts on.
From a trip a couple of days after I got it back. Shouldn't the body be sitting flatter?
Flatter like this pic of a TJ with ORO steering like I have (I know it has the Sway-Loc, but still...)? The body has minimal lean. I couldn't achieve this if I did the same thing. I'd be leaning so much I'd probably fall over.
What pics of comparable rigs and ideas do you guys have?
