i have just puchased a 74 scout II.it has a 6 inch spring lift and the springs have been moved to the top of the axles,giving it a total of 11 inches of suspension lift.it rides on 35" ground hawgs. the problem i am having is the truck wants to wander violently left and right at speed greater than 20 mph.i have had 2 broncos a 79 and 85 both of which had suspension lift and 35" tires and have never run into this problem before? any help on this would be great thank you , shaune
Sounds like a caster problem to me. I think it's recommened to get the knuckles turned with more than 4" of lift. The caster is thrown off because the axle has to be rotated up too much to correct the pinion angle. Also check all the bushings and tie rod/draglink ends to make sure they are nice and tight.
Wow, 11 inches of lift and only 35's? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Anyway, back to the problem at hand, does it have a steering stabilizer? Just in addition to what 4x4 said, make sure everything is tight like steering box, tie rod ends, drag links, rubber steering donut etc...
hope this helps [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
