Why is steering SO responsive after lift and wheels?
Just put on a new set of wheels with existing tires as well as a 2" BDS coil suspension lift and Steering stabilizer. The first ride after installation, the Jeep seemed uber responsive to steering input. If I slightly touch steering wheel it starts to move in that direction. Stock steering felt steadier and had more play when steering. Maybe that is how it rides and I just have to get used to it. I will say it looks great and the ride is much firmer thanb stock but it feels good on road. Now I need to see how it does OFF ROAD!
Whew, i thought there was a problem. I used to have a cull size bronco with a 6 inch bds lift and i think it drove the same way but since it was heavier and probably wider and longer the steering felt different. Thanks.
Ps. HILLDWELLER, the next time you attach a 20 page answer for a 20 word question me and hou r gonna have problems!!!! Lol. Jk. Thanks!
Save up for some control arms; it's not a huge problem at that amount of lift, but anything that could lead to DW is something that should eventually be addressed (imho).
I corrected mine with cambolts and tack-welded the little MFs in place after they decided to migrate. Does the same thing (in theory) but does it in a more ghetto fashion.
I keep promising myself that I won't ghetto the next mod.
...and then, there I go...
