My Jeep is tilting

I have been driving my jeep for about a week with these new BDS springs on, and the drivers side is about 1.5" lower that the passenger side! Will it all even out? It looked good when I first installed it, but now it is really tilting.

Re: My Jeep is tilting

I had the same problem with my procomp lift. The left rear was lower. I took the spring back and got another. Now it sits level. Mine was on for a couple months and never leveled out. I'd have BDS send another spring.

Good Luck.

Re: My Jeep is tilting

hahahahahaha that's terrible [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

on a serious note - some folks forget that the nuts and bolts should not be torqued until the full weight of the vehicle is resting on the springs. May not be your problem - it was just a thought I figured I'd voice.

Terrible, maybe, but you laughed as much as I did! You're just as guilty!!!
