hello all, Ive got a 03 TJ sport with a 4" Rock Krawler 4 link short arm suspension, rancho 9000 shocks, 33" mt toyos. I was far out into Dixie Valley, a remote desert and mountainous nevadan area, wheeling along when I had a sharp turn to the left and stopped in a hurry. Hopping out I found what the problem was immediately, my front left control arm was hanging in the dirt and the whole front axle was canted backwards! Obviously this was a bad situation because I was out of cell reception and a tow truck would have a hard time getting to me anyway. I figured I would throw it in reverse and back up till i could straighten the axle out a bit and lift the control arm up to the bracket. The bolt that was there was sheared and finding another bolt long enough proved difficult. I still had my stock jack and bars! I bent the bar and wedged it into where the bolt should be. I thank my lucky stars that bar held in there while driving back to town at highway speeds.
Has anyone had any problems with the Rock Krawler suspensions? I've noticed all of my control arms were getting loose. This time it caught up with me.
