I am going RCV's I'll have to be easy on the pedal so I don't tear up the R&P. But I have been wheeling with a D30 locked for two years and had zero issues with it.
So the synergy front track bar frame brace will work with my teraflex monster track bar?Just be aware. You might be ok with the height, the large loop of the TF track bar can rub the pitman arm. Mine is close but haven't flexed it enough yet. I think you only have to run Synergy's track bar when running the optional sector shaft brace. The frame bracket by itself is no problem and easily bolted on. What a setup you're going to have going. You doing RCV's ?
Oh, okay... I was under the impression the brackets only changed the location of the lowers. It changes both? Thanks...The brackets do a few things, change the operating angle of both upper and lower arms making them more parallel to the ground. This smooths out the ride over bumps.
Change instant center for less brake dive. Lastly the upper arm hole is set back to rotate the axle down for caster. Caster is what tightens the overall steering feel.
Adjustable mid arms only set wheelbase and pinion/caster, But if you are not relocating the mounts -like with a long arm. the geometry doesn't change. Even with adjustable mid arms.
That's where the brackets shine. Clearance is the only negative. Something to consider if rock crawling where clearance needed.
Sounds like someone installed the dreaded cam bolts rotated 180º (backwards).Oh ok ... I would be concerned a bit with almost 6* caster if that's what he is getting.
Cam bolts are used for
Increasing caster running the stock arms. To lesson caster (with lower arms) -never heard of that done. Makes no sense
As far as the difference from side to side.
The passenger side on JK's always seems to be a bit higher on caster for road crown --I believe. If she drives straight, keep the cross caster and dial each arm back a turn (if possible)
To try and even it out, only dial back the high side. You are shooting for 4.5-5*
At 5.5* average caster.. Pinion angle should show .5 to 0 * or a touch over 90*
I installed the lift and I didn't install any cam bolts. I only took it to the shop for an alignment and the guy mentioned he could try that and I told him no...don't install any cam bolts.Sounds like someone installed the dreaded cam bolts rotated 180º (backwards).
I assume that your comment "Pinion angle is changed but in a good way" is in reference to me questioning/confirming that if I try to see if I can get the LCA to turn in (shorter) that it shouldn't affect anything else other than castor. Is this a correct assumption?Oh ok .. You are pretty even at 6*
Pinion angle is changed but in a good way
I thought that was a bit of a difference as well. I will try the other side/circle as well just to see. I will also try it at the pinion flange as well just to see what I come up with.Yes, the axle measurement is just a base but should get you close setting up arms. Then you would have the jeep aligned for accurate numbers.
That is a big difference though, did you try the other side for s**ts?
There is always a chance the tech screwed up. I don't know how common that is.
What I meant. Lowering caster has the opposite effect on pinion. Your pinion will raise a little which is better for the DS
