-12 offset? Jesus. Yea that's probably what's doing it. +18 to +30 is the sweet spot for these.

Re: old man emu kit for WK2. Who has it?

Could you describe more about the clunk and your overall impression of the ride quality?

Actually I was wrong on the offset. The wheels are +30. The odd thing is that it doesn't rub with the wheels cut all they, only at about 30 degrees.

Re: old man emu kit for WK2. Who has it?

Sure, the clunk is coming from the drivers side rear. It sounds like a loose upper shock mount. I spoke with 4Wheel Parts and we found the cause. When we dropped the Jeep off they called us soon after and told us that when they checked the kit for the rear, only he passenger side rear shocks had bushings. They told us they'd have to call ARB and get them overnighted. When they called ARB, ARB told them to just use the factory hardware because they only recently started including it in the kit and before the factory bushing was used. Turns out the factory bushing leaves some play in the upper mount causing the clunk on harsh bumps. They ordered 4 other rear kits and called me today. One of those kits had the hardware so I'm taking it in tomorrow to get the OME bushings installed. I'm guessing that will fix it.
