bb post install ??
 
3 Attachment(s)
My zone 2" bb w/ shocks install went well and hassale free for my 98 4.0l. It was my first time really getting to work on a car and enjoyed using the tools. I am really enjoying the ride quality as well but as the suspension settles, I noticed something.

My passenger front coil is slightly rubbing the coil mount/guard. It seems too close for comfort especially with city driving.
I was thinking could I have shifted the bolt when installing new bump stops?
I tried to flex it so I can move the spring and it didn't work (don't have access to the tools).
Ideas??
Thanks

The taller the suspension height, the more angle difference the coil springs are seated between which can cause a bit of rubbing like is happening with yours. That is caused by the suspension lift causing the axles to rotate very slightly by the control arms pulling lower axle mounts a bit further than they do the upper control arm mounts. I wouldn't worry about it. :)

It doesn't matter that it happens only on one side?
