Rear coil spring correction wedge

I just installed TF 1 inch spacers to my jk with TF 2.5 in lift and I also installed the TF monster control arms. The control arms corrected the pinion angle in the rear, but now my coils are bowing. Will the wedges correct the bow?

Interesting problem. Maybe post pics. Also, consider sending a PM to the TeraFlex rep here with a link to the thread to make sure you get their input. You could get the solution straight from the horse's mouth so to speak.

I would think this would happen with anyone that replaced stock control arms for adjustable. When adjusting control arms to correct pinion. The spring perches on the axle are rotated out of line with the upper perches. This is what is causing the bow in the springs. Seems to me this would be a common occurrence.

ya..... adjustable control arms will create bowing in your springs. the easiest way is to buy the above coil correction wedges.
