hey guys!

hey everyone I am new to the Jeep world and especially this forum. I just recently picked up a 1983 CJ7 on 33's with about a 2 inch lift on leaf springs. I have a slight problem though.. It is leaning pretty bad on the rear passenger tire. It was leaking grease pretty bad so i replaced the seal and bearing. that fixed the leak but it seems to be leaning a little more since i have done that and especially when i take left turns.. is it just a bad shock or am i looking at a bigger problem?

Hard to say without seeing it, but shocks should not 'hold up' your vehicle. Do you have a broken leaf spring?

It's a Jeep Thing ... I do understand!

I'm betting it's a broken leaf spring. Worst case is the axel is broken.

Have any pictures of the rear end?
