    Yep, I learned shortly after that the correct way. Was a bit embarrassed to post that but you asked. 🤣. All things being equal, if I repeat the same it should still be the same overall net, right. Fender skirt, inside perchlorate outside lip. But I did learn the error of my ways and you have reinforced that. But my 3.5 measure and current 4 in measure were done the same for comparisons sake.

    Weld on bracket or bolt on and is everything tight? You can get some pretty bad road transfer to the vehicle if anything is loose there as well.

    Sounds good. I think an even better comparison will be once I get the arms on too. And I need to check out your exhaust from inside the cab.

    WJCO the axle has the optional raised track bar bracket.

    As for the flipped drag link, I'm sorry I am a bit confused if you mean a bracket for that.

    I am not sure which vendor provided the flip, but the person I bought from thought it was AEV. I bought the PR44 as a pkg upgrade from my D30 from someone stepping up to 60s.

    Appreciate very much the help and suggestions.

    I was referring to the track bar bracket so you're good there. And I assume track bar is mounted in the top hole?

    Yessir, it is.

    If it helps clarify things a bit, it's not a steering complaint that I have. I do notice more road feedback, but that's not what I'm trying to assess. What I'm really trying to hone in on seems to be spring related to me.

    The overall ride seems slightly more firm than the RC coils with the Fox 2.0 shocks, but an initial impact on something such as a road divot, parking lot speed bumps and similar, seem to be harsher than I was expecting from the rave reviews on here with these coils. The initial compression of the spring is certainly felt, and the rebound seems slightly quicker. If I were still dirt bike racing. I would be setting sag and adjusting clickers.

    Cozdude gave me some things for concern to QA my install in the manner I torqued up the fasteners, so I will certainly be investigating that.

    Or was my expectation too high? Was the RC setup better than I thought? At any rate, I do appreciate the suggestions and will look it all over again when I get home with the advice given in mind.

    Riding in his will def help sort out if this is an isolated issue with your Jeep/install needing more troubleshooting or if that's just the way they ride (given that you both have/will have pretty similar setups). Do the bolt torque checks at ride height/weight and def ride in his back to back. I'm scratching my head too as internet lore would certainly favor the Plush coils over RCs.

    Yes, we shall see. And don't worry, I'm not gonna ask for a refund.

    It kind of sounds like you arent happy with your shocks. The Plushride is a soft spring, so the harshness you are feeling is MOST likely from the compression/rebound rates of the shock. While it is in theory good to pair the soft springs with a stiffer shock, perhaps your Fox shocks are a little TOO stiff for your liking when paired with such a soft spring? The reason you didnt feel "harshness" before was because the spring was heavier so the shock didnt have to work as hard to slow things down. The spring took more of the impact load... if that makes sense? I.E. the axle (and thus shock) is now moving further thanks to the softer spring

About us
“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.
