That may be normal with 7 inches of lift and large tire. If it has not been in for an alignment after the install I would do that ASAP. 35" tires are expensive to burn up.

Want to know how to install body lift on a 2003 jeep wrangler sport


The body lift is included to ensure the larger tires can cycle through the full range of suspension movements without touching anything. The nice thing is that lifting a Jeep Wrangler (TJ) is easily done in stages:
- A 1 inch body lift will allow you to easily clear a slightly larger tire than stock, very inexpensively
- A 2 inch suspension lift would allow another tire-size upgrade, and increase ground clearance as dollars allow

In the end, a 1" body lift, combined with a 2" or 3" suspension lift will allow you to fit a 33" tire under these Jeeps. This not only increases your actual ground clearnace under the axle by almost 3 inches, but those new springs will flex a lot better than the old ones, so your Jeep will be much more capable offroad.

Combine this simple lifting strategy with aggressive fender trimming, and you could stuff 35" tires under that rig of yours - that would be good for almost 4 inches of extra clearance (over stock) under the axles - but you'd want to look at upgrading those axles if you're going with a tire over 33".

Other Lift Considerations... running out and slapping on some pucks under your body tub might sound easy, but there is a bunch to consider before the wrenches start flying:

* Get replacement bolts ready - the old rusty ones will be tough to get out and you'll want new ones to install
* Make sure you use actual body lift components - some areas will not allow a Jeep equipped with hockey pucks as body mounts to pass inspections - don't laugh, it happenes every day
* Be ready to lengthen wires and control linkages as needed - going up 1 inch shouldn't pose a problem, any higher might. You'll need to fabricate longer shifter and t-case handles, and watch for any other items which need lengthening.
* DO NOT run a body lift any higher than 3 inches - even that's a bit much. All you are doing it raising the centre of gravity and rather than the lift blocks supporting the mass of the body (and you) vertially, the bolts now must carry the weight through the turns. Think of it - does it seem safe to have 6, 1/2" or so bolts holding roughly 2500 lbs worth of body tub and humans in place? Keep it to 1 inch if at all possible.

Don't forget, if you raise the suspension, you'll need to install longer trac bars to locate the axles and adjust or replace steering components to keep the angles of steering-related items within specs. A full, complete kit, will have everything you need. Be sure to double and triple check those trac-bars - there's two in TJ Wranglers - one for each axle. Their job is to located the axle under the Jeep - if you hear a clunking noise after the install, chances are the mounting or location bolts/nuts are loose. In general, these nuts/bolts cannot be tight enough. Re-check them periodically and after every two or three trail rides. As with any suspension changes, go get an alignment when you're done.

2008 jeep wrangler hood problem


I just bought a 2008 jeep wrangler and my hood is lifting 2 to 3 inches off the frame when I'm driving on the highway in wind speeds over 15 to 20 mph. I've owned two jeep wranglers in the past and I've never had this problem but chrysler keeps telling me this is normal. What's normal about a hood that is lifting off the frame?

Changing tire size from 30x9.5x15 to 31x10.50x15


hi, no i think you should be fine the tyres are made for that vehicle and the extra size shouldnt make any difference.
The only thing i would check is the tracking to make sure the steering is lined up properly but other than that you should have no problems.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok

2001 Tacoma 2-wheel dr, 5 lug wheels; I want to lift 2-3 inchs...no lift kits seem to be available. Dave


It would be best to only do a body lift kit if driving on the road.Suspension lift kits lead to a lot of tire wear problems and the truck will never drive right again.

How do i remove coil springs from 1997 jeep wrangler Step by Step instructions please


General instructions are to drop the suspension down by removing sway bar, shocks etc, then lifting the body not the suspension off the ground till the springs are free. For specifics, get a manual it's too long to write out here.

2001 Jeep Wrangler 4" suspension lift


Jeep's transfer case output is poor for lifts over 2-3 inches. A transfer case drop should have come with your 4 inch lift, but if not you should be able to purchase it from quadratec.com or 4wd.com. You shouldn't drop it much more than an inch, since engine will be rotated into your firewall, besides, transfer case drop reduces ground clearance. The spacers go between your frame and you transfer case skid plate. A transfer case shift linkage bracket is also required to maintain its alignment. Then if it starts making noise, the dealer has a TSB parts kit to fix that. A better solution is a Slip Yoke Eliminator and extended rear driveshaft, but you'd be looking at about $450 and a days worth of work. Good luck.
