    Front spring bowing question

    So I've got the 3.5in sport lift from rancho and I've got quite a bit of bowing on my front coils. Initially I figured a little bowing was normal but Just yesterday I noticed the front passenger spring is bowing enough to rub on the bump stop. I've checked and everything is seated properly so I can't figure out what could be causing the bowing. I do have half inch leveling spacers installed with the lift, but those didn't seem misshapen when I installed them. Is there anything else that could be causing it? Do I even need those leveling spacers in there? I was considering removing them this weekend to see if that did anything.

    Front spring bowing question

    Pick up a set of Daystar Coil Spring Correction pads. They will straighten them right out. Problem is the coil pads causing the bowing.

    X2. The OEM pads are weak. Daystar will firm up the foundation and take much of the bow out. Guess FCA figured wed buy the Rubicon anyway just because of the name and past history. Fooled us again!
