RK rear coil correction wedges.

http://www.rockkrawler.com/pages/cat...p?r_itemID=247

Took me about an hour to install. I rented a spring compressor from AZ.
Pretty easy

Coils look nice and straight now, no bow.
Also a good amount of space between the coil and TB bracket. I was almost touching before. TF uses wider coils which doesn't help.

Time for a drive

For $30 why not

Drivability is improved with the coils straight.

for anybody with 3" plus lift to try these wedges.
$30 you really can't go wrong

It does matter of fact. Lil more bounce in the back <---- just the way I like it

There is now 1-11/2" in-between the TB bolt and coil.
Oh.... They do raise the back maybe 1/2" something to consider

Big difference. What a great little mod

So did you scrap the coil hold downs with your lift, or get longer bolts?

Nope, I took them out obviously but from what I read, they should fit fine.

The wedge still sits below the hump where the retainer sits on.

probably just put the front one on because these new coils (poly performance) gave me a frontal rake.

Great information, I think I will be going with the TF 2.5 soon and will definitely pick these up.

Do you have a recommendation on shocks?

I tried the Bilsteins and Teraflex 9550's. Both a harsh ride on a light 2 door.

I love the Rancho adjustables I have now.
There is a $100 rebate until June 30'th I believe.

My freakin phone died. I wanted to take a pic from the side with the tire off. These little $40 gems do their job. My coils are straight up and down.
It does make a difference in handling also.

More folks to try them out, especially if their coils are bowed some.
