Oddly enough, I picked up a Teraflex dual rate sway bar off KSL today. The guy I bought it from was outboarding rear struts on his TJ with a friend. Turns out the friend works at Teraflex. We got talking and I told him I just bought speed bumps. He said you can use the bracket for the front speed bumps and a hole saw to recess the bump into the frame rail and custom tune the height of the speed bump for lower lifts.I'm using a JKS adjustable rear track bar, the non CV one. It clears everything. But just barely. Speed bumps would be way cool but I'm petty sure they are too long for my 3 inch lift. I think I'd have to give up some uptravel to use them and I don't want to do that.
Spent a couple more minutes mentally planning on the jeep today.
I couldn't figure out why my Falcon's were so close to bottoming on compression. I have TF lower shock mount relocators that allowed the 9550s to clear the lower spring perch. Like these
This places the shock farther back away from the axle and up higher. The Falcons lower bolt hole mount is off centered so even though the shock body is larger they clear the perch in the stock location.
Damn the engineering in these things is sweet. Now I have about an inch of exposed rod. I am not only clearing the lower spring perch but also the exhaust that was contacting the shock body before.
Full droop without the re-locating bracket.
Fully compressed at current bump height.
The dark spot is where the 9550s were contacting the exhaust.
I'm leaning towards this Metal Cloak rear sway bar to resolve the contact with the cross member. I'm curious if anyone is running that setup and how they like it. I have a CV driveshaft and the bracket on the CV shaft version is tilted forward to move the track bar away from the crossmember.
