Crossed threads are tight threads.
If interested I have these new in box. I'll send them to you for 40.00 .
Not trying to make money just don't have a use for a lot of stuff that I bought over the years.
Sold! Pm me

Threadjack!

I also installed leveling coils. '89 BII, Skyjacker 132. I took it to my mechanic who is pretty well versed in ttb suspensions with 2.5 & 3.5 degree camber bushings. He says it isn't enough to align it yet and suggested drop brackets. I feel if I have to install drop brackets, I may as well just put on a proper 4" lift. Unless there's a milder drop bracket option out there.

This just doesn't sound right...

I am eventually gonna go legit lift as well, but with cut and turned arms, for I have heard drop brackets are a no no (they cause the front pumpkin to hit).

There are drop bracket options out there, but none are proper.

I ordered a set of 3 degree bushings to try out. even it its still not enough, its better than degrees. I figure frequent tire rotations will get me by for now.

Forgot to mention I have seen 4 degree bushings out there, maybe one more degree will bring it into spec?

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Right. Skyjacker and James Duff are ok.

I don't think .5 degree is gonna be enough to work. There's gotta be something I'm missing.

You can't lift one of these suspensions by just using the springs. That's it. 1.5 inches you can do and expect to be able to align it. But of course 1.5 inches isn't enough for most people. Some people have gotten 2 inch spring only lifts straightened out, but that probably depends on the vehicle and depends on "how close" they wanted it aligned. Being "close enough" is sometimes good enough for some alignment techs.

Right. I did the 2" coils, which only netted me 1.5 ". So I should be able to align it without issue. That's the confusing part.

What's the worst that could happen?
I know this is old, but it is exactly what I was looking for-- especially the TRS magazine link to an article by 4x4junkie
