Re: Jeep Rubicon hop found
Interesting - a friend called the other night before I'd tried the shocks. He told me he bought a Rubicon from the same dealer 2 days after I did.
I told him about the hop problem - he hadn't experienced it and probably thought I was nuts (Ha Ha - OK, I am, but not in this case.)
Last night he called again - he'd experienced the same wheel hop problem and wasn't too happy.
It's possible we got a bad batch of shocks on the Rubi's here, or I wonder if somehow some got the 4 cyl shocks put on by mistake. My local parts house's books show the 6 vs 4 cyl shocks to be different.
This may be a local problem or may be country wide.
Now that that's over I'm pretty happy with it overall.
Sure it still has issues, like the low range only lockers etc. I'll post the override trick on another post I found on the web - looks easy!
And of course more power would be nice. I found another 8 or so ponies hiding in the filter airbox - installed the straight tube with a K&N - you can feel the difference, still not a race car, but it helps a little.
Yes, I've been drooling over the supercharger! Maybe --
Now for my next question - I'd like a shock that is even a little stiffer than the 9000's at the stiff setting - anybody know what that might be? Adjustable would be nice too.
Thanks in advance, Rich.
