Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Is anyone using spacers on stock 20" wheels while leveling/lowering with quadralift links?? I am curious to see if there are any rubbing issues..

JTS and Petey have both run them in that configuration, no rubbing as far as posts go here.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Just changed my front links to bring the front up to level. Just right to fit some 275 55 20 nitto g2's.
For anyone wondering about going up you can go up all the way to or2 and ride around all day like that but thats as high as a stock airbag setup can go the system will just keep trying to raise and overheat the compressor and have to cool down in a constant loop.
Also the front wheels end up riding on the outside edge of the tires real bad unless everything gets aligned to that height. Back didnt have any tire issues but did have the banging over little bumps and speed bumps. It got a little annoying so before i put new tires on and got everything aligned nice i went back down to stock in the back and barely up in the front. I can raise it up for off road purposes. Tires look pretty bad ass for an all terrain and now i actually have some sidewall to cushion some rocks.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

I am going with a 22/10 on a 285/40. Will I have any issues if I just want to close the gap a little? The rubber will be a 1/2 inch over stock height. All these lowered wk2s look terrific.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

Seems like you'll be fine based on other accounts. I lowered mine a bit in the front and back now and love the look. Wish I could swing some wider 22's right now.

Re: Quadralift lowering/leveling/lifting Links DIY

I need HELP guys. I had the jeep in OR2 mode so I could crawl underneath , changed links front and back , easy to do. I then tried to change the mode and NOTHING is happening. I now have the raise button and the lower button with a single light lit up.

Is there something I need to reset????

Ya go for a quick drive. Stop somewhere turn vehicle off and open door so everything resets. Did it several times with mine.

Double check the sensor direction. When it's hanging and you click the link in if even one is facing the wrong direction it will refuse to go up or down. I forced mine to go up then got a service suspension light almost immediately. After double checking them my drivers side rear was facing the wrong direction and let basically all the air out of the bag and I had to jack the jeep up just to reach the leveling link lol. Simple mistake

By lowering just 1 inch, you pretty much blow your chances of having a desirable camber/caster measurement in the end.

On some instances, I have elongated the adjustment slots on the lower control arms to achieve a more preferred spec, but again, there is still very little room to work with if the vehicle has been lowered. Option B would require the use of longer or shorter control arms depending on if you raised or lowered the vehicle.

I've been both researching this topic to death, as well as agonizing over making the modification, and have come up with this, so far.....

I took a good look at the front end of my GC yesterday, and I fully agree with "Ratchet"s observation. My GC, at stock height, has the inner pivot bolts of the lower a-arms, at pretty much the full limit, for camber adjustment. So, knowing that lowering the Jeep will increase negative camber, I probably have insufficient travel left, to compensate for any camber change. I suppose I could however, elongate the slots, but then I might not have the ability to adjust the caster, to the proper setting. And this is just in the front. Having seen all of that, I didn't even bother to crawl under the rear.

There is a "camber adjustment" plate, made by 'SPC Performance', and I first saw it on the 'Tire Rack' website. SPC's installation video, however, doesn't really explain, al least to my satisfaction, how their plate will work, if the Jeeps adjustment slots aren't long enough. They clain +/-1.5* of adjustment, starting with the pivot bolt in the "middle" of the slot, and this plate only goes on the rear side of the adjustment bolt. Their tech line opens at 7 AM, but they're two time jones away from me, so nobody answered, when I called a few minutes ago. (DUH!!!)


With respect to Zoro tools, while I was researching the DIY links, I found that Grainger also sells the Bahnsbach elbow joints, as well as metric threaded rod and hex nuts. They could possible be a better source for the materials. Grainger's p/n are #6VD1, for the joints; #25DM54, for the threaded rod. I forgot to get the p/n for the hex nuts....

I started doing the research, in hopes of finding both left hand threaded, as well as right hand threaded elbows, with the thought of making the links "on Jeep adjustable", for fine tuning the ride height. I called Bahnsbach's tech line, and was told that they indeed make LH versions, but while they're available somewhat readily, in Europe, they're not sold here, except by special ordr, of SIGNIFICANT quantities.


Just another of my $0.02 worth..........
