    Quick Disconnects

    Hello I hope I can explain this good enough without pictures. When I look at the top part of my quick disconnect on the driver side it sits about a 1/4 inch from the spring. On my passenger side it is about 1" to 2" from the spring. Can anyone explain to me what is causing this and what can fix it? Please Help 2866F59E-F85D-4E8D-8E02-4188A6F22B54.jpgD97B788A-FB1A-47BF-A38D-02EC7CBECBBB.jpg

    It depends on what your set up is, i. e. adjustable control arms or not? Give us some more info...
    Also head over to the Give us a wave section and introduce yourself.

    Welcome

    Looks like a Rubicon Express kit. Did it relocate the track bar mount? That displaces the lower sway bar mount on the passenger side. On mine it didn't cause the problem you're having, but makes the passenger side not completely vertical.

    It is a rubicon express lift. When I took it back to the shop that did they lift they told me it is supposed to be that way and their JK is like that too. I knew they were lying to me.

    Do you have adjustable control arms? Measure them and confirm they're the same on both sides. If not adjustable, did the kit come with the relocation brackets? Check those, seems like they have different holes for what size lift you got. Maybe they didn't use the same hole on both sides.

    Problem is I have had this lift for 2 years. And about 2 weeks ago is when I noticed this. It was never like that before. I replaced the quick disconnects a month ago after someone stole one and it was not like that. I need to find out if they are adjustable.

    One other thought. My RE lift came with the option of using camber bolts. Since you've had the lift for a couple years, if the control arms were set wrong, or the relocation brackets were off, you'd know way before now that something was wrong. However, with camber bolts, if they used them, can wear the hole out and move. Maybe check. Good luck

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
