I'm thinking the springs will soften up, with more miles and with some crawling.
Shackle angles and length have a huge impact on suspension feel. How do they compare between two Jeeps?
That is what he is hoping, but the springs are going to have to soften up quite a bit for the rear shackles to tip out.
That's the difference I am talking about. I was able to build in some shackle angle and room for an increase in shackle length if necessary. The Rocky Road shackles are 3.5" on center. After 10 months, the rear's are still pointing forward and the fronts are about straight up and down. Hopefully the upcoming rubicon trip will help. If not we will be moving his mounts to the same measurements as mine.
Did he go with the 3-3.5" heavy or the 4-4.5" heavy? In your opinion, would the medium have gotten what he was looking for? Which springs do you have on yours?
And, did you get it up on the trails yet?
It just ran the Rubicon (in mostly 2 wheel drive from what I here). Look at this thread
