I was wondering if there is anyone that might want to trade suspensions. I would like to lower mine from the excessively high 6 inch Rough Country with adjustable control arms to probably a 3 inch with fixed control arms. The six inch is too high, the tires look odd with so much space in the wells. Plus it's difficult to get into. On top of that, the rear drive shaft is too short and needs to be extended in order to reduce wear on the pinion shaft bearing & seal.
I don't see myself doing any rock climbing or any severe off roading where I need so much ground clearance. Or driving through deep rivers. Grant you it's kinda kool driving in traffic and looking down on most people. It sits up almost as high as a medium duty straight truck does. But it's miserable trying to drive that on the freeway with so much top-heaviness and body sway. Semi passes me and I'm all over the darn road. Or strong cross-winds push that thing all over the place. I struggle to maintain a speed of 60 mph. Plus the front axle and rear axle are not straight and true with the frame. Which also affects the overall handling too. The rear track bar is too short causing a dog-leg affect when hitting dips. There is some slop in the steering, it is super twitchy and the handling is squirelly. Not saying that lowering it would cease some of that as other Jeepers state the Wrangler is naturally twitchy do to the short wheel base.
I have plans on replacing the faded (was painted) fender flares, getting a rear bumper and replacing the rear track bar for an adjustable unit. It looks so STUPID not having a rear bumper. Especially now that I have a hitch receiver installed. And I need another black rim to match the four I already have. The aluminum on the back needs to go too.
