    The last part on my most recent order finally arrived. A heavy duty steering box brace which moves the box forward 1.25 inches. When I get the new frame, the company said they would mount the front spring brackets forward by that same measurement. The shackles stay mounted in the same place and will lean a bit more forward at the bottom, but I have the wiggle room as now they sit slightly negative and should end up where I want them to be.
    The CJ factory set up has the wheels set too far to the rear and causes rubbing and turning issues when larger tires are added. (At least the sizes I'm running).
    I was going to do a heavy duty bracket anyhow so getting this style was a no brainer. Luckily, the rear tire sits pretty centered in the wells, only had the common issue with the front.

    Yup, did exactly that with my frame build, along with a shackle reversal and pushed the axle mount forward by an inch up front on the springs. Back is pretty centered in the wells.

    Progress!!

    Are those Synergy coils progressive rate springs? Cant tell if it changes towards the top, or if it’s just the camera angle.

    They appear to get closer together at the top but not as close as some I’ve seen.

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.
