Oh yeah baby! I've got the same thing, but with stock Commando leafs (30 years old And SOA). I figure it's just one of the "perks" of driving around with all that POWER. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
No problem offroad, but a bit un-nerving on the street. Especially now that cold weather has arrived and the steel hardtop is on. Just wait till I modify the rear suspension (inboarded buggy leafs...1/4 elliptical...)! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

My CJ with a 304 leans a bit too. Its nothing that bothers me too much, but you could put in new springs and fix the problem. I remember reading a joke on here a while back about this that went something like.....There were 5 CJ's in a dealers lot. Numbers 1 and 2 leaned to the right, number 3 was normal, and 4 and 5 leaned to the left. The owner of the lot went to the head mechanic and told him to fix number 3.
