Diane found some of Number 7's baby pictures today. Here he is right after we brought him home:

And another one right after the lift kit was installed and on 32's. This picture was taken 8 years ago almost to the day:

I bought these brackets to correct the arc in my rear springs. Turned out they gave me an inch-and-a-half lift in the rear, so I had to do something else.

I decided to cut the factory spring buckets off so I could flip them side-to-side (i.e.: Driver to Passenger & vice versa) and slide them toward the rear to get the spring to go straight up & down again. This is an old Jeep trick I've known about for a longtime. When Jeeps come stock from the factory, the springs go straight up and down, and as you lift them, the wheelbase gets slightly longer and the pinion angle changes, making the rear springs arc.

While I was under there I decided to also shorten my rear shock brackets 1" because I kept scraping them on rocks.

 

Here's one before cutting:

Sup George,

 

my tj recently suffered right side sage associated with engine torque and spring arc. I bought a set off used springs to take care of this for now but I'm planning on relocating the upper buckets when I pull the tank for a new check valve / filter install. :eek:

did you have to pull the tank?
