I have a 3" lift on my 2012 JKU and was wondering how often should I inspect the suspension parts? The paperwork that came states every 1000 miles but was wonder how often most people check theirs.
did they make you pay for it?My 2012 has a TF levelling kit and I heard some noise in the front end on a good gravel road, went to dealer and they ordered a new drag link, tie rod and pitman arm. I only have 20K kms. They said it was too loose, how did this happen?
Your method will reveal loosening of fasteners, but it doesn't address actual torque values. Suspension components are comprised of consumable wear items which will eventually affect torque values as they degrade. You MUST put a wrench to the bolt to check torque as time goes on.After torquing to spec when I installed my lift, I marked the hardware for the control arms, shocks, trackbars, and end links with a paint marker. At every oil change I visually inspect for looseness and wear.
