Don't feel bad... Hell me & Geo had discussed soon after I got there Saturady. We both looked around at all the work going on and decided that there were far too many other projects to do. The best use of our time was to help everyone else get done. And I think we pretty much got everyone taken care of. It was not a problem that mine didn't get done.

Sleep til 9am!!!



Me and Jody are going to be there at the crack of dawn! Shannonon is not coming this time, so I'm free to head over at whatever time I want. And you know I don't sleep in.

See you bright & early sunshine. Please have my hotcakes, eggs & coffee waiting for me. That long drive from Sugar Land sure makes me hungry.

The coffee pot will be turned on at 9am, trust me you don't want me to make any before then.

In my sleepin stupor I am liable to put dog food instead of coffee grinds in that thing.

I checked my coils to make sure I didn't pick up the wrong ones after my install. The skinny front coils have the exact same number but the bigger coils have a single number different. One has a 5 and the other a 6. Not sure if they are left/right specific. But they are close enough that I don't think I grabbed a rubi spring intended for Chris.

Thanks for checking. That means the other spring should be floating around out there someplace

Actually I made a slight mistake. It is the shorter fat rear coils that are the same. The taller skinnier front coils are off by one number. The color tab on the paper is different too. They have two sets of numbers. One is common like a set or kit number maybe. And a longer number that is off by one digit (5 and 6). I don't remember the colors on those tabs. I think an tan/orange/brownish color on one and a greyish-blue on the other.

yes fixed... Combo of problems

passenger side coil was a non-Rubi, drivers side was a Rubi coil

drivers side shock lower bolt missing so the shock was basically hanging from the top only.

Between those 2 issues, its no wonder he had DW

I'm trying to recall all we did do his Jeep...
2.5" spacer stacked with a 1" spacer in the front
4 door rubi springs...

IIRC, we are looking at 3.5"-4.5" of lift in the front..

It's probably his caster is way off, and may need to get some adjustable front arms to correct it

I had 2.5" stacked with 1.75" spacers stacked a long time ago and couldn't go faster then 55mph the vibrations were so bad. get rid of the spacers and order some coils from rustys...they are $110 a set for 3.25"...that will get rid of your vibes.

no we fixed the problem...when they put the lift on somehow someone put one stock coil back on so he was all sorts of wack.......we put the right spring in there and all was good....thats what we get for doing all that work in one day
