If that lift was purchased as a kit, supposedly, their kits, when properly installed produce excellent results that rival or better the suspension that is stock and performs well even at speeds of 80mph (isn't that the limit of the speedometer?). Which leads me to the question, that if all was installed correctly, wouldn't this be able to be fixed with an adjustment?

I'm looking at the bottom of the spring and wondering what that spring is sitting on? What was it sitting on prior to being changed? I have to go out and look at mine, it is still stock.

I got a question , he had a 1 inch body lift on top of the other lift , I knoticed where the top of your shock mounts there is another 1 inch spacer there , could this be stretching it to far and causing the bow in affect? And also at 80 which takes awhile to get there it rides like a dream I have no issues at all with the ride quality , thats why I am very surprised with all this

Its hard to tell for sure, but does the bumpstop look to be to one side of the coil? Maybe more pics are needed. Both sides and where the coil is seated in the upper buckets.

Ok, I went out and took pictures of what stock looks like focusing at the bottom of the springs on both sides (from front and rear).

The first picture focuses in on where the end of the spring rests on the front side of the spring and the last picture shows how the rear of the spring rests on that flat platform formed by the bracket.

mudbug, yours looks like it is not centered on the bottom mount surface like mine is. Yours looks like it is resting up against the inside of that mounting.

the way it looks is these coils are that big on the bottom end that there is excess slop , and if you think about the way the weight sits on the coils it would naturally make them want to push out

Maybe it is just not properly positioned on the mount??

I'm looking at the relative size of the spring compared to the mount and comparing to mine and the spring looks to be the same diameter just positioned to one side while mine is centered.

You would think that the bottom surface keeps the spring centered on it if it is placed correctly on top of it.

It appears to me to be seated. But it looks off centered at the bottom. IDK, maybe antigoon can shed some light on this when he shows up. It may be a non issue. (?)

When considering the forces on the spring with the weight of the vehicle on it, having the spring off center like that and nothing supporting the outside, would explain why the spring is bowed to the outside. I'm sure others will comment on this.

I gave mudbugjeep a PM response on the issue..I asked him to check for adjustable track bar and lower or upper adjustable front control arms...

Yah, that is one of the must haves on my jeep. They had to go hunting about 200 miles to find it for me. I've been very happy with it. The other must have was the hitch package. My dealer has done well by me.

Keep us posted on your progress with the lift. I have a special interest in OME as I want to get one. I'm interested in the Rockfather. Yours looks like one of those as it looks like more than the 2-1/2 inch lifts. More like the 4-1/2 inch which would be the Rockfather. Hope you solve the issue.

Mudbug,

I posed your situation to a technician at Rocky Road Outfitters who sell OME, big time, with a link to this thread. He said the following:

Quote:
Most likely the spring was not indexed properly during installation. The end
of the spring sits in a little pocket. If someone just puts the spring in
without paying attention to the position of the spring, this can cause the
spring to sit incorrectly and bow out. The springs need to be properly
indexed to sit correctly, and behave correctly.

Hope that makes sense.
This was my original thought in the posts above but because of my lack of experience with it, I asked an expert. Rocky Road is probably the place I'm going to get my lift kit from. They have been very responsive to my questions before this one. And this one may not have involved one of their sales, how's that for service. I have no affiliation to their site, just appreciate good service and information.
