    Evo plush ride coils bowing - a lot

    Have Evo 3” plush rides on all 4 corners . The rear is sagging and especially the back right ... causing a noticeable lean .

    Went under to check it out and found the springs bowing a lot .

    First photo is back right . Second is back left . The fronts seem fine .

    Thoughts ? Are these bad coils ?

    Mine look like that but on a two door. Yours shouldn’t. Control arms probably too long.

    Any issues driving it like this ? Don’t think it’s rubbing track bar currently — at least not much . Back right already has a 2” spacer compared to the other corners that have 0.5” spacer so the lean is pretty strange

    Front looks ok. Back looks jacked up to me. Try some synergy coil wedges. A 25 buck product that may help. Also try shortening your control arms.

    Doesn't look like the axle is tilted much, just too far back. Also, you have some room to shorten the rear LCA a bit. Do that first to pull the axle forward. If that tilts the axle too much you might need the correction wedge.
    I put the 3 inch EVOs on my 2 door and they're not bowed like that. But my rear LCAs are at about minimum adjustment. I'm running the wedges. Don't have a good pic at drive height but here's one at max droop when I was doing the installation. 20190407_175918.jpg

    Seems like consensus on shortening LCAs and trying out wedges at the same time . Seems outside of my technical comfort haha. Prob take it to the shop

    2 door at ride height.
    Looks my axle isn't as far back as yours, springs not as bowed.

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.
