Yeah, unbolt and pull them out about 2 inches on each side. I may make it so I can drive over them eventually.

A little bit of tire hanging out from last weekend.



Same spot different view. Itís pretty steep but canít really tell from the picture. Also to do this line you just about have to be on 40s or bigger. The break over is pretty hard.

I must follow you on the instant social media application. Some guy on there had an identical problem this weekend and I think the same photo. I was kind of wondering where I learned about this random online person.

I rebuilt the bump stops and made a cross brace to connect the upper spring mounts together. Should help.

My Jeep wheeled awesome this past weekend. I did taco my driveshaft pretty good though.
The local shop that built it only charged $100 bill to retune it though.

Yes, is your front a high pinion?

Did the driveshaft cause you to stop? Did it vibrate?
