    Make sure to check the upper length too. If you simply shorten the lowers and the uppers are too long your pinion could end up point up way too much. If you're running an after market DS the pinion needs to be pointed at the T-case.

    Try adjusting the rear lowers to 20Ē and then, if you have an aftermarket drive shaft, adjust the uppers as necessary to get the pinion pointing straight at the transfer case. I would also try the wedges while youíre at it.

    I'd put the factory arms back on until you figure things out. Seems like you're struggling a bit

    No such luck donít have them anymore . A trip to ORE for a tube up is probably in the cards . Was going to get lengths for 3Ē enforcer lift for all rear control arms and go from there but right now going to just drive it for my trip

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
