I'm dumbfounded that shop let him drive out of there with a Jeep like that. I mean, what if he took off fast and had an accident?

That's irresponsible mechanics. That shop should explain to folks what needs done to pull off what a vehicle owner wants. And Branden, I'm not saying any of this is your fault either. We've ALL been at a point where we don't know what it takes to lift a vehicle and run big tires. Not everyone is a mechanic, and these chop shops should know that.

This is kinda what we have been talking about in PM's. If he got it aligned at a shop and was able to drive away without having any guidance as to what needs fixing than theres something wrong here. Dont make sense other than they want to get paid and have a good day type of business.

Dont really know what sort of alignment they could do anyways. The only adjustable part is the toe in and centering the steering. The toe in doesnt change with a lift, so all they would have done is centre the steering wheel and measure everything.

They should have told you the rest needs more parts replaced to fix.

I run a Rubicon Express 3in lift, about 2.5 inches front and 3in rear roughly after its settled with stock wheels (just wanted a little more ground clearance), have adjustable front trackbar (cant use a bracket on the front without flipping the draglink to keep them parallel) and a teraflex axle mounted bracket for the stock rear trackbar.

My caster is a touch under 4 degrees, really needs to be closer to 5 so has a little bumpsteer in the front but drives nicely.
