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 ?

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

Well it's a RE 3.5 superflex, the jeep had 3 inch bodylift on it too prior with no problems, also has a SYE and. Cv shaft...

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?

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

Sorry...I couldn't resist.
