thanks Ant. That pic was just what i was looking for. nice looking WK!
I like the look a lot, especially with the moabs. real clean.

I do wish the front was just a little higher.. you def. see the rake in it. It isnt bad at all, can totally live with it.. but its def. still there... it looks like a factory rake just higher overall.(which is nice..but like i said.. wish the front had another close to 1/2" (for my purposes).. either way though, thanks for the pic.. your WK looks great. and youve at least DEFINITELY swayed me away from the 643s. you know the measurements you have now?

My driveway is bowed in the middle and the front end is sitting in the belly of my driveway, thats why it looks raked

Out on the street i just measured 6.5" (top of tire to fender) on BOTH the front and rear... its a dead even stance!

Re: Monroe load levelers

Just an update on these shocks guys. They are awesome and the ride quality is great! I have ran into an issue though. I have the 646 shocks and its raised the truck quite a bit in the rear. The springs on the shocks are contacting the shock body and created a rubbing/squealing sensation. Its annoying as hell and im wondering if there is a fix for it? I'm Thinking of wrapping a section of heater hose around the spring and clamping it down where its contating along with some grease. Has anyone ran into the same problem with the LLs?

Common problem. There should be a rubber sleeve where it's contacting. It most likely just fell down. If you glue it back in place, the noise should be gone.

Re: Monroe load levelers

I bought the MLL 643s. My mechanic said he couldnt get them to fit and line up wihout hitiing gas tank. I know he used a lift. Should this be attempted on ground with a standard jack. Some help would be appreciated. I don't want to send back. If u can send back at all. I have RC 2" lift.

Re: Monroe load levelers

I put mine on with a car lift. Started the top bolts. Took a bit of man power to push them into place in the bottom. Then I used a punch to line up the holes for the bottom bracket. Be careful, i would add some washers to the top shock bolt becuase the shock is way narrower than the oem one. I ended up just cranking mine down and it bent the body flange. Its fine though, just don't plan on putting a oem one back on.

Re: Monroe load levelers

i installed mine without using a lift or removing the tires. Only used th4e jack to raise my jeep about an inch to get the lower portion of the shock to line up with the mount.

1) remove the x2 bottom bolts
2) remove the x2 top bolts and remove shock
3) install new shock (top bolts first) do not fully tighten
3a) trim plastic flap in wheel well to give clearance for the LL spring (tin snips and utility knife worked for me, also a dremel to smooth out the edges)
4) install x2 lower bolts... will to use a jack to raise the vehicle about an inch to line up the holes on the bottom of the shock with the mounting point
5) torque everything down (70ft/lbs top -- 85 ft/lbs bottom)
6) done

Re: Monroe load levelers

ant, I believe they are talking about the 643s.. not the 646s like you installed...since those 643s are longer, I would imagine that they take a little more of a fight to get in.

and I've heard about the noise issues with the MLLs.. like mentioned, it just that sleeve that fell down.. glue it up in place and youre all good....
Ant, did you run into these sleeve noise issues at all with the 646s?
