So, I finally got my Jeep back and it has been nothing but a nightmare getting the lift finished. I have family in NY and a cousin that has a Jeep and has installed lifts in the past. So I ordered everything and had it shipped to him and drove to NY for memorial weekend to do the install with him and visit family. First thing on the list was to remove the 3" body lift and install JKS 1.25" BL in its place. We did that on day 1 and it was a breeze. Day 2 we go to do the suspension lift and we are taking everything out of the boxes and the front springs are missing....DUH! What the hell, I told my cousin 10 times to check and make sure we have everything so I don't get up there to find out we are missing something or need additional parts.
Long story short he felt like a total A-hole and I bought a plane ticket back to Atlanta. I ordered the Savvy Currie kit and the front springs were back ordered for some time. Springs finally ship and my cousin completes the install by himself and drives my Jeep back to me this past Monday. 2 hours into his 15 hour voyage he stopped to get gas and decided to check the control arms and he noticed they were all loose. He thinks the folks that did the alignment in NY did not tighten the control arms after the alignment was done. He finally gets to Atlanta and when I go out and see the Jeep to drive it into my development the check engine like comes on and the jeep was riding really rough.. WTF, I park the jeep and the radiator is overheating. He did not notice that the shroud was not adjusted and the fan was not running. Good thing he made it and nothing was damaged. So we get up the next morning and raise the radiator back to stock position and ended up hacking up the fan shroud for the time being. I will be ordering a new shroud to replace the busted up shroud. After a few more test runs I feel as they jeep is not riding like it should so I set an appoint with a off road shop to check it all out. My pinion angle was off which was causing vibrations. He did replace the drive shaft and sye. The front drive shaft was rubbing the transmission skid ( I have an auto) and they did a few things to the rear trac bar bracket. Jeep rides great now. Still have to get used to the Antirock while turning. No more vibs. I did have to order a skid row transmission skid because all the shop did was add some kind of bolt washers so the front drive shaft doesn't touch the OEM tranny skid.
I am sitting on 32's for the time being and will be upgrading and soon as I can stash some cash. I have some pics of before and after.
P.S. if someone has the tools to help me install the Skid row tranny skid in the Atlanta area that would be a huge help and greatly appreciated.
