intersting observation

I have an 02 jeep TJ with a 4" RC lift 33's adj ft and rear trac bars. I changed the rotors and ect this past weekend. On the way back from the parts store with serval pounds of extras in the back it road much smoother. Afterwards with all the parts now residing on the jeep and the back now empty it was back to the same old vibe ride. So I went down to loews and grabed a 60# bag of tube sand and tested the ride again. with the new weight in the back its smooth again. How could adding weight in the tailgate area smooth out my vibe problem?

by changing the angle of the driveline even so slightly it might have helped. Have you added a trasfercase drop? if not add a few washers and see if that helps.

It's that time of year to put a couple of sand bags in the rear. Unless you have a few pounds of off-road gear, I would suggest you put a couple of 50 lb. bags over the axle and you'll get a better ride and better traction in the snow.
