Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

got my kit in, does the rear adjuster go at the top or the bottom, i was thinking top

i am currently lowered on bwoody's and my drivers side exhaust pipe is already taking a beating from the diff. what are you guys doing to fix this?

i'm on cut bumpstops and wondering if this is the noise im hearing vs. the bump stops or something else that i can't see up in there entirely

If you have the coil overs in what Bwoody's are you on? I have my adjuster on top to keep it out of the weather and easy access with tire on. We told you on the other forum to get rid of the bump stops and the bump stop towers. I have never had my exhaust hit the diff with any of my set ups.

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

How are you guys running at 31" without the UCA's hitting the towers when you hit a bump? Right now I'm at 31" with Jeepinbyal UCA's and the arms hit every time I hit a swail in the road or a bump. The wife hates me at this point. I can certainly fix the problem by cutting and raising the towers a few inches, but thats a drastic fix. The back is a whole other problem.... very bouncy even with the settings all the way to soft.

You look lower than 31" and what kind of bumps are you hitting? I will hit occasionally but I'm still 4 clicks away from full firm on the front. You may need to turn your rears in a little and start to firm it up. Here is what 31" looks like or do you have 22s which might explain why.

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

I have 22's on the truck now. I never adjusted the fronts...couldn't get the little adjuster tool in there... The ride in the rear is horrible...even set at soft, it was even more bouncy when it was set in the middle. Personally I'm not seeing the benefit of the coil overs verses just springs, especially for the money difference. Between the coli overs and the UCA's I've got quite alot of money tied up. I could have bagged it for not much more... I just adjusted the truck up to 31.25 in the front for now, until I can get it on the lift and start cutting the tower. to provide more clearance. My wife hates me right now. Shes even given the truck a name...Jerky the Jeep.

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

You need to learn how to adjust the rear and I believe the 22s are why you bottom out in the front so bad

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

@402 motoring...... Hope this helps the tire size im running in the front is a 265/40/22 which gives me a good cushin wen hitting pot holes etc. maybe thats wat is making it harsh my rear tires are 285/35/23 it is bouncy but not too extreme depends on how bad the road is too

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

Yeah I'm currently running 265/35's in the front, and 295/30's in the rear. The tires I used on these rims were take offs from a customer job. They were in great condition so I threw them on for the time being. Next spring I'll buy new tires and probably will go with the bigger side wall in the front when I do. Last night I raised the front up a bit and that seemed to help. The ride is still a bit stiff and I need to work on that more. My wife is highly upset with me and since we ride into work together each day I am trying to balance her confront and my need to have a cool looking truck.

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

Can anyone give me a height measurement on an Eibach lowered rear SRT spring? I'm thinking about going back to this type of spring but receasing it up into the rail / floor in order to maintain my drop. With a set up like that I would gain the better ride of a bigger spring.
