22" Wheel alinement, questions I need your help

Here's a question for everyone who lowered there Jeeps. I got a set of the Eibach lowering springs the ones with the least amount of drop I can't find the part number right now. I'm looking for the best set of "adjustable upper control arms" cause my guy said that he could not get my alinement back 100% and I drive my jeep way to much to have unnecessary tire wear.

So I'm trying to see what you all have done to fix this problem, before I just put the stock ones back in. They make the jeep sit really nice & she looks so mean I hate to go back but if I cat fix it I will go back!

Again, Thanks for your help in advance

Re: 22" Wheel alinement, questions I need your help

to be honest... they dont fall back into alignment perfectly but they are within spec... keep in mind that these things came from factory with alittle camber to them. most havent done anything to fully correct the issue. if you want to though, check out black ops whom is a vendor on here... they sell a nice set of adjustable control arms that will get your back to perfect!!! chad is his name and he will get you set up!

Phillysrt, Thanks bro for the good information. I can't deal with unnecessary tire wear...

Now I have to make a serious decision on weather to keep these springs in or not.

Re: 22" Wheel alinement, questions I need your help

There is no need at all for upgraded control arms with an Eibach kit. I spoke with an SRT tech at my dealership who checks out all of the incoming SRTs. He said the factory ships them with -2.2 camber in the front. I'm running -1.8 and -2.0 on mine with Eibachs.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, leave the Jeep the way it was designed. Negative camber is a big part of the way this vehicle handles. Deal with the tire wear. It's not unnecessary wear, it Necessary wear!!!!

Re: 22" Wheel alinement, questions I need your help

I wanted to comment but was second guessing myself on this. With the eibach kit, you still can fall back into factory specs...

Been running mine for over 25k miles.

A-Kon, thank you good info. right there, do you have any rubbing issue, I rub every now and then. I'm quite sure my roads are not as nice as yours.

CLStech, are you still running stock wheels?

Re: 22" Wheel alinement, questions I need your help

Zero rubbing even on big bumps and bad roads. What offset are you running? I can't remember. I know anything more aggressive than a +40 in the front will rub in the right circumstances, on any drop.
