RepoMan73 If your tranny is bouncing everywhere, you should make sure he/she wears a seatbelt.

Sorry...I couldn't resist.

brant Went back over all bolts still has a bounce..? Going to adjust the pinion down a little this weekend hopefully...but I don't see the 1-2 degrees causing this?

Boobicon How big is your lift ? I know I had to rotate my axel to compensate
Did you check all the mounting bolts

Tranny bounces in first gear since lift install..?

So after installing my Rubicon Express lift now while in first gear the shifter and tranny bounces until I get up over 10-15mph ? What could be causing this ? Once over 15 she is smooth as glass..? I do know my pinion angle is about 2 degrees high, gonna get this adjusted down ASAP..but could it cause this ?
