LOL im debating putting this in my profile =D

i HATE putting the miles on my jeep.. only time i drive it is if its VERY nice out and just want to cruise, or going to a offroad park and wheeling.. other than that i drive my car.. id rather put the miles on it than my baby =D

nico i wouldnt drive around in 4h while waiting on a driveshaft, even if its technically "front" wheel drive since the back wont be engaged.. id rather borrow a car from your parents IMO.. then once you get the rear driveshaft reinstalled and you begin working on the front, then if you have any problems with the front driveshaft remove it and drive in 2wd until its fixed..

4Jeepn You could always just remove the front driveshaft for now. Then make adjustments once you get the parts. I wouldn't lose too much sleep on it though.

4point I would figure (I'm no expert) that the 3" you gain with a TT would translate into 3" of lift on your driveline/pinon angle even though you don't actually get any vehicle lift.
04-03-2009 12:35 PM
nicolas-eric The driveline angle would change.
But the Currie CA manual says, that with 4-5" of lift the UCAs should have the stock length, the LCAs should be 0.75" longer than stock. With the adj. CAs the driveline angle would be worse IMO.
04-03-2009 12:29 PM
4point You're right It wont change caster, just driveline angle. I was thinking of pinon/driveline angle and said caster.
04-03-2009 12:26 PM
nicolas-eric Why does it change my front caster angle?
The complete front suspension is the same, only the TC is 3" higher.
My caster angle is ok now, then it should be ok after lifting the TC.
Or am I wrong?
04-03-2009 12:21 PM
4point Its going to change your caster. Whether its OK or not I don't know.

Front Suspension ???s

Hello.

Next week I´ve the time to install the SYE, the rear CAs and the belly-up skid.
My front CAs need 2-3 more weeks.
Can I install all that without changing anything in the front?
I´ve 4.5" of lift and with the stock CAs there is no problem. IMO it should be ok when the front stays as it is now.

Thanks.
nicolas-eric
