Help with lift problems
I lifted my WJ. 39000 miles. There is a thread around here about it. I have been chasing a problem that is driving me crazY! I put a Fat Bob's 2.5 spring lift, shocks, JKS Track bar, new Tenneco magnum SS, New TRE's, New Moabs, New Coopers. Driveway aligned to 0.0 Toe as directed in the instructions for the Rusty's front springs. Had it toed in and it isn't good there either.
The truck is horrible to drive. I only drive it locally now. Highway is downright scary. It isn't too too bad on smooth pavement but if I hit a bump with the right front tire Oh Holy Mother! It feels like the tire is going to fall off! I have not got DW. It settles down fairly quickly but I about crap myself when it happens. Trying to figure out if this is just what you have to live with on a lifted WJ or if others don't experience this? I am going to take it down to a local shop to check the alignment and suspension. There is another place that is an offroad shop that I am going to stop by as well. I guess my question is could it be a balljoint or control arm bushing? Is this normal or does it sound like something is wrong? Tell me there are spring lifted WJ's out there that drive nice and behave on pothole roads. I must say that if a stock WJ is 18" at front hub center to fender measurement, then I got a full 3" of lift as I am at 21" now. I thought at 2.5 that from what I read, I would be safe from ill effects of lifting. I shouldn't have to live with bumpsteer like that with a mere 2.5 lift should I?
