Post lift questions

Can someone with a rubicon, stock or lifted take a picture of their passenger side coil spring and knuckle. The clearance between the two on mine is very small compared to the driver side.

Sorry no rubicon here. well... no (suspension) lift here either... I did however, notice that when I purchased my TJ, the passenger side settled lower than the driver side. The overall difference was noticeable. Did you notice (or even measure) the four wheelwell-to-tire distance differences BEFORE the suspension lift was installed? They very well may have been there before the suspension lift...

You need an adjustable track bar. What/how much lift did you go with?

Mr. Madison, what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

i did redrill the bracket. the coil spring is sitting closer to the knuckel on the passenger side then it is on the driverside. also the sway bar links are sitting different on each side.

Hmm, that's what I did too. Guess you're going to have to get an adjustable track bar.

would being out of alignment cause this type of problem. i havent had it aligned since the lift went on yet.

You need to get the axle centered before the alignment.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
