Wink New geometry correction control arm bracket for the JK Wrangler

JK owners!!! We have taken our tried and true geometry correction brackets for the JK platform and add even more options for castor with 4 holes. Our one piece design makes install incredibly easy. No need to fumble around with plates! You asked for it and we listened! Check with your favorite retailer on pricing!!!

Any plan to make Rear geometry correction brackets?

Currently it seems only Metal Cloak makes them. It's a great idea but they are overpriced. With front and rear you can have a 4-6 inch lift with the geometry of a much lower lift.

Theres no need ^^ even MC's dont correct pinion, only flatten the arms out (Imo you should be on long arms running 5-6" of lift)
Front brackets do both caster and flatten the arms out for a smoother ride.

I am planning on installing the teraflex 2.5 coil lift, and new Rancho control arm brackets with it.
Which hole would you recommend I use for the upper arms? first or second?
thanks

Flattening out the rear arms would be beneficial. The force will push the vehicle forward instead of pushing down on the arms/tires.

I agree about long arms for a JK but for a JKU they really aren't necessary due to the extended wheel base/arm length.

I don't understand ? Front arm angles transfer into the front end/steering and you feel it more. Rear arms do not.. i mean there might be a small difference but nothing like the front.

When your control arms are parallel/more horizontal to the ground the force from accelerating pushes the Jeep forward.

The more vertical the arms are the force is pushed downwards causing the tires to "dig" downwards into the ground instead of propelling the vehicle forward.

I ask this in another thread, and according to @Pressurized , he recommends the top hole for 2.5 lift.

but, not sure if this is Teraflex 2.5 specific or 2.5 in general.

Here is my real world experience. I got a little more caster than Rancho's paperwork stated, about .5deg. So I would rate the top hole at 2-2.5 and the second hole as 3-3.5 and the third hole as 4-4.5 and the forth hole as 5" and up. All rated lift size, not an "actual" front measurement.

Generally speaking, the 1.5 and 2" lifts shouldn't need any correction, but I have seen some that were a little low. At 2.5, some are acceptable but most benefit from correction. Anything 3" and up will definitely be better with correction.
