Kevin, can you set up an “Ask Greg” forum for me [joke]   clown

Greg, if you get a chance, could you measure the length of your front lower control arm (center of bolt to center of bolt)? 

Thanks

I used to wheel a lot. . .

23 1/16″

These are the measurements that I used in the instructions from the metalcloak kit: http://www.armoredworks.com/me…..GER-JK.pdf

Um...what?

Thanks Greg. The adjustable Synergy arms says 23-1/4″. I am currently at 22-7/8″. That’s only about 1/2″ difference though, not sure if that’s going to be enough to stop rubbing? I’m getting tired of having to do all these three point turns in parking lots!!!

I threw the full doors back on today. Just that “slight” bit of droop to the suspension turned the hard rub into a slight rub. Looks like extending my front axle just 1/2″ will make all the difference.

I’d like to push mine forward even more than what it currently is.  I had the chance to drive Jeff’s jeep and realized his doesn’t turn as sharp as ours can.  His steering stops are what’s limiting his rubbing issue.  Plus it’s a 5.5″ lift…

Um...what?

Good info. Thanks.

We will get these tuned 🙂

Let me know of any updates, my adjustable lowers are 3 weeks out.
