JK Rear Seat Install

I decided to install a Wrangler JK rear seat as it is the widest fold and tumble seat that fits between the wheel wells. It is only set up for two passengers at the moment but I may be able to add a third seat belt in the middle. I really like that it easily folds and tumbles forward in addition to ...

Bent inner C AKA inner knuckle

Looks like I bent my inner C when my u-joint exploded on Cadillac Hill this summer. I can’t find specific measurements for the Inner C but the ball joints don’t fit up right. I am thinking about using a large bolt through the upper and lower ball joint holes to bend it back to shape then add a gusse...

I ran a Detroit for several years and hated it overall. The slop annoyed me all the time and the clunky locking/unlocking sucked on pavement, it was really bad when towing.

Stan, based on your description I believe you are not dealing with bump steer. I agree with the alignment guy, with the much larger than stock tires you should have a bit more caster and toe than the stock specs call for. You could dial in a little more “toe in” and see if it improves the tracking s...

Paul nailed it! It would be helpful to know what the real behavior is so we can help diagnose the issue as many folks suffer from bump steer due to poor trackbar - draglink geometry. I installed along arms years ago and it took a lot of effort to get my on-road manners back! I had to install stiffer...

Here is where I am at right now.... The suspension is at ride height with the bracket and lower slipper mount tack welded in place. This setup should allow full compression of the suspension and not limit down travel.

Thoughts?
