Yesterday, I completed the front portion Of the lift kit for the wife’s new Jeep. Today I will do the back and get everything dialed in.
I buy all my parts from Northridge4x4. Probably 2k in the lift. Not hard to install at all, though the older I get, the less fun it is. My shoulders and hands are a little sore this morning due to a little arthritis.Nice!
I have an idea on the wheels and tires but what does the lift cost and where did you get it?
how hard was it to install?
when you are done will you have any issues at highway speeds?I buy all my parts from Northridge4x4. Probably 2k in the lift. Not hard to install at all, though the older I get, the less fun it is. My shoulders and hands are a little sore this morning due to a little arthritis.
Had it regraded Monday to 4.88. Alignment isn’t necessary since the front control arms are fixed length, castor is not adjustable, no adjustable ball joints, so camber can’t be adjusted, and I stayed with the stock tie rod, no toe change from factory. If/when I go with a heavy duty drag link and tie rod, I will get an alignment.Don't forget an alignment.
What's the gear ratio?
No adjustments. On TJ’s, used to use a straight edge and a measuring tape and set toe in 1/8” and it worked great.Wtf? There isn't a scratch anywhere on that thing? My SD has more dirt on it. Time to get out and wheel that poor thing.
I just use strings to reset alignment. I like a little toe in to keep DW at bay. Are you sure that there aren't bushings under the joints for caster/camber? A little toe will add a hair of camber, but nothing to worry about.
Ha! We just bought the house in April, so the garage is still a work in progress. The wife’s list inside has priority for some reason.Ok, after seeing that floor, I want to see pictures of the rest of your garage! Or maybe not, I'll probably be too jealous. Oh, by the way, nice jeep.
