    Time to fine tune things little by little.

    Sounds like you need to adjust the control arm length to line up the bump stops. What donít you like about the ride?

    How much gap do you have between timing rings and the sliders on the shocks?

    Not complaining just need to start tinkering but where should I start? Line up the bumpstops and the wheels arenít centered at full compression inside the wheel arch.
    Also, the length stated in the instructions are way off if I have the bumpstops meet up and if I adjust the wheels to center at full stuff the bumpstops donít even touch each other at compression

    40” tires rub You're probably going to want to pop those lower fenders off

    bumpstops don’t line up Did you line up your bump stops and pads on full stuff without springs?

    and the ride is nowhere close to what I had imagined How is the ride, and what were your expectations? Granted I'm running smaller tires than you (37x13.5r17), but my ride has exceeded my expectations by a large margin. My JLUR + CO + LA performs much better than my 2014 JKUR with a Metalcloak/OME setup on 35's. Around town and on the highway I have no shake, shimmy, bump steer or tracking issues. Washboard roads no longer rattle my teeth. Things that do need attention include the exhaust loop buzzing on the front driver LA bracket at startup and while idling in drive, and my rear drive shaft contacting my gas tank skid. My rear was pretty stiff, however it has loosened up. I think that once you get things dialed in appropriately you're going to be very happy.

    Lock to lock it binds on my front poison spyder bumper
    Cut and plate or get a new bumper

    I would start with the proper axles. You want to run 40ís you need the proper equipment.


    2012 JKUR Billet Silver
    2012 JK Dozer
    1975 DJ5 Postal
    2012 Jeep Jk - 37ís
    2012 Jeep JKU Rubicon - 40ís
