More stuff = DONE!!!

Alrighty, here's what I finished up today:

Currie Antirock = Done.

Coast 1350 Driveshaft = Done.

Nth Rear Trackbar Relocation Bracket = Done.

Alignment = Still a work in progress.



I picked up the Antirock from a local shop here for a price that almost made me cry . Turn key and installed it was just under $ 300.00. Not too bad. Everyone talks about more "body roll" but I haven't really noticed anything much different on the street. I haven't taken it off he pavement yet. Hopefully when the weather clears I'll be able to test it out and report back.

Thde Coast 1350 is BEEFY to say the least. As a matter of fact it's overkill for my rig. Although I'd rather go ahead and do it now rather than wishing I had done it later.

The Nth Mobility Trackbar Relocation Bracket is really trick! These guys make some really innovative products. Like Dirk said these guys really know how to think outside of the box. They nailed it with this product. Bascically the bracket mounts to he axle side (drivers side) and shifts it forward making room for the factory trackbar to clear the gas tank skid. I went from about negative 1/2 an inch of clearance to nearly two full inches of clearance. No more rubbing! I took some pictures of the before but they didn't come out very well. If anyone is interested in seeing them I can send you a PM.

Now he only thing left on my short list is the Nth Mobility Tummy Tucker. Any vendors out there care to shoot me a price???

A price for the product not the install. I think I can handle the install on this one. I just hope I have enough duct tape.

The lift is a long term, think about it, kick some tires then do it right thing. Remember my lift is only six months old right now. I figure I should at least wait a year before I scrap the thing.

This summer I'll change out the lift...

Sounds good, man. Let us know how the offroad excursion goes. I've been bustin' my a$$ for the last few days framing a house, but tommorow is my day to put my PSC trail corners on. Fun, fun, fun for me. Maybe I'll go out and give them a trial run here soon.

A man with your skills can knock those trail corners out in an hour or less.

Are you going to do a write-up when you install them?

Yeah, I'll do a write up. Probably take me longer than an hour, I have to do the tail light cutouts and don't have a bimetal hole saw, so I have to break out the jigsaw, that's where I'll lose my time, and taking pics, of course. But it'll look good when it's done. Between my bumper and these corners, my rear corners should be pretty safe from damage. I don't mind scratches, but I hate dents. They just drive me bonkers. Desert pinstripes add character, dents are a mistake visible for all to see, and they're an eyesore.

Scout, Have you watched John's video about the installation of the Anti Rock?? It is on their website somewhere but tells the just of how to fine tune to your suspension.

I will try and search it down. It has been awhile since I've seen it. I remember watching it awhile after I had my AR installed. Made me realize I didn't install it properly. The basics were that the AR arm needs to be parallel to the ground in the middle of your suspension travel. Most jeeps are set up with more droop and less compression. I could tell a big difference after I adjusted the arms and stiffness of the torsion bar.

I will start looking for the link.

Thanks! It seems fine right now but I'm sure there's some fine tuning that still needs to be done. Any help is appreciated!

Ok, now you've got me thinking. You say "middle of your suspension travel", wouldn't that be sitting on level ground? Like this? Or am I missing something or misunderstanding you?



Also, care to check my pinion angle?



Thanks for your help MR.CLIFFORD!

pinion angle looks high to me but that would be really hard to tell from a picture. Do you have an angle finder? The pinion should be 2 degrees down from the drive shaft to allow for pinion roll under acceleration.

The AR should be parallel to the ground when your suspension is in the middle of its travel.

For instance. You have 3" of up travel in your shocks before the axle hits the bumpstops. You have 6" of droop at static ride height. That means the center of travel is when your axle droops 1" so it needs to be 1" higher than parallel while at static ride height. The way it was presented to me was that in some cases some jeep have very little up travel and very extended droop which can damage the anti rock if installed improperly.

I don't have an angle finder but I can easily get one. I'll put that on he list to check.

The AR explanations makes more sense now. It appears to me to be close but I'll check it just to make sure. Sounds like I need to get the tools out and try more of this stuff myself.

Thanks a lot MR.CLIFFORD!

Let me know what you find out about the pinion angle. I like this kind of angle finder. It has a magnetic base for ease of use.

Scout, to me it looks like they made allowance for way too much compression on that drive shaft and not enough extension. It also looks like the pinion angle is a tad too high to me also.

But your Currie looks pretty spot on from what I can tell and with the lift you have.

Hopefully I can get some work done on it this week. I'll try turning it down 2 degrees. After I do that I'll snap another pic and post it up. Hopefully that will get get it to spec.

Let me know how everything goes truning your axle down 2 degrees. I'm planning on installing a SYE with a new shaft and I'm sure I'll have to do the same. Do you have adjustable upper controll arms or are you using cam bolts?
