Re: Customer service Questions, concerns, praises, Ass Kissers

Let's just say, hypothetically, if someone had installed the BWoody (WK2) links and wanted to return the suspension to stock, what would be recommended as bushing inserts to return the drilled-out lower control arms to the original dimensions?

I've found some steel bushings that seem to be (nominally) the correct size (1/2" O.D., 3/8" I.D.), and the same in bronze. They'll need a bit of work, but should do the trick. Question is more about the most suitable material.

I installed the links, paying attention to ALL of the instructions. For the first couple of days the Jeep felt great. . . then the ride quality started to deteriorate. Body sway was reduced, but the overall "tightness" and solidity of the ride was compromised.

I then had the work checked by guys who do this for a living, and replaced some of the bushings that had become torn up as reported earlier. Alignments looked good, everything was lubed up, bolts re-torqued to spec. Again, the ride was great for a couple of days, then started to soften up again.

The small amount of stock body roll is an acceptable trade-off (for me) in order to get the more solid feel back to the suspension. YMMV.

Any thoughts out there to share? I wish I could be counted as one of the successful owners of this mod, but it seems I am not going to be happy with this going forward. I really want to return everything to stock, and am seeking any advice possible.

Thanks!!
