Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

I am taking mine in for an alignment tomorrow. Just seeing if the links affected the camber and get it adjusted to specs. Needs to go in anyway - wheel is tilted to the right just a tad.

Nope. Place I took it to only had the alignment equipment that grips the rims. They were afraid of scratching them. I have another appointment for next week at a place that has the style that hangs on the tires.

Holy sex. What did the wheels/tires run you if you don't mind me asking? That is a money setup.

Love those wheels. I just installed a set of blaque diamond bd8 20" on my 2011 summit. Love them so far.

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

I hate to do this but I have been denying making links to the last few PMs I received. It was just becoming too much work and time consuming for the amount I was charging. Not only that but I noticed the ebay guy I was buying them from upped his price almost a dollar per socket.Sorry guys. Its relatively straight forward though for anyone that really wants a set.

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

Hi guys. New member here. Just picked a 14 GC Summit...love the truck so far.

I'm interested in this mod to make it a bit easier for my wife to get in/out of the truck. She's only 5'2".

In the grand scheme of things...this looks like the simplest suspension mod I've ever seen. Love the look.

I have one question. How does this affect the camber at normal ride height? It's got to add negative camber, right?

Dont want to trade tire life for this mod.

Does the jeep have enough stock camber adjustment to correct for this?

Thank you James, I too am glad I got a set from you. You are a good man.

Re: DIY homemade air suspension links. Install with pics!

Well here is a before look at my alignment. A lot of RED. This all can't be from the links right? I have about 11,000 miles. Never went off road and I avoid all pot holes. Maybe it was never right when I took delivery?
