    Actually ordered replacement springs because I thought they were stretched.

    They have yet to arrive.

    Not sure new bushings will help.

    But I'll address this with the vendor before I install anything. If I get more of the same stuff, I'll get another set of springs from another vendor.

    I sent the tech team photos. I'll see what they say. Don't want to bad mouth the vendor without giving them the chance to get this right.

    And thanks for your replies.
    You've confirmed my suspicions.

    Replaced the springs, shocks and shackles so new bushings all the way around.

    Vendor said the springs should have never been installed with that gap between the spring bushings and the spring hanger. That definitely was a major contributing factor to the early wear.

    Initial test ride is still a bit stiff, but not nearly as stiff as before and no popping, loose steering or collapsing shackle.

    I'll get a decent test at the Ultra4 Nationals next week when I'm doing race support/recovery.

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.
