Back when I had it done the first time it sat at about the same height but since so many things have changed I'm gonna have to get the tub back on to check stuff out and make sure I have good clearances. I think right now I got things set up at half up and half down (7 front and 6 rear) but ill probably play around with that later on once I have the full weight on.

Everyone's setup will be different...But this is how mine worked out. What I had to do was set the shocks up for 4" of up vertical travel, then with both tires at full vertical bump make sure I had 3" to 3.5" of tire to body tub clearance. This was needed so when one side dropped out completely I would gain 3" more of up travel movement at the tire on the bump side. If you look at it mathematically for every inch that the one side dropped out I gained close to .17" of more shock up travel on the opposite side. Plus with the axle now sitting at a 16 degree angle with the one side dropped all the way out. This put the tire even closer to the body...

Hope this all makes since..

I just put things where they fit lol!

Last night I changed a few things around, adjusted the track bar length and its axle mount, moved the coilover tabs around, cut down the 3rd link and set the caster and moved the upper link axle mount. Tonight im gonna take the springs off the coilovers and see how things move

Since 2005 I have owned 3 jeeps. 4 if you count a daily driven WJ.

My point is pointless, but it is that in 6 years, you have done nothing but take this jeep apart, and almost put it back together, to take it apart again.

You like thinking about wheeling, and tinkering with your jeep more than you like wheeling lol
