Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

Thanks mate and know exactly where you measured from. Did the same and got 4 degrees as well. My 7 degrees came from the diff spreader holes each side of the cover so why it looked higher.

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

One thing you could do to quickly narrow down your problem is to remove the pictured spring and see what it looks like without any load on it. Obviously if it bent, you found your problem.

Looking at the picture again, it definitely looks as though the upper mount and bumpstop are in correct spec. The axle end is the end that is off. Whether it is the control arm mounts or somehow the bottom axle mounts were welded on incorrectly, something is definitely off.

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

Will check it when the time comes to pull the drive train stuff all out. Doing the inside first while it sits at stock height to make it easier, then will sit the whole show up high on stands to drop all the drive train out and cut the mounts etc.
Might have to drop the pinion angle slightly anyway as the wheels base will be 8.5" longer in the Willys if I keep that stock.
Thanks for your help again.

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

Can I ask another big favour? I really need to know how much clearance I need to leave above the upper wishbone so it wont strike the underside of the Willys guard when fitted there. I dont have the inner guard so dont know how it is in the area directly above the wish bone. Does it come out level with the top of the strut there or is it higher than the level of the top of the strut?

I really do prefer the look of this caliper over my 2008 one. What models was this on? Pre 07 update?
Were they noticeably worse than the update or any other reason they changed them? Will they bolt on to my later backing plates?

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

If you are talking about the part that says jeep, that is actually just a metal cover that snaps onto the caliper. I think they discontinued the part in mid 06. But you possibly might be able to get them from the dealer or on the web. The only reason I believe jeep got rid of them was for cost cutting.

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

That is great information. Had no idea it was the same underneath that. If I end up with very open wheels where the caliper is obvious, I will see if I can get a pair.
Thanks

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

Rang the dealer here today and they said they were never imported into the country.
Did a worldwide search even and none left in stock anywhere. If anyone comes across some, I would be very grateful.

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

I have them on my Jeep...... how about, when I sell it, I'll snap them off for you.

You won't be needing them soon!

Re: Puzzeled over coil and axle angle.

That is the site I used and part number I gave my dealer when he did a world wide check for me.
