Clutch noise after 1\" body lift ??????
A couple of weeks ago I did the Daystar 1" body lift on my 84 CJ7. No problems that stand out in terms of the installation. Lowering the radiator shroud was about all that 'appeared' necessary. However, since then I have notice a very slight noise which I hesitate to call 'grinding' because it is much milder than that. The clutch is about 6 months old and works fine from a shifting perspective, not hanging/sticking and the action is smooth. However, sitting a a stop light in neutral there is a distinct 'rubbing' sound that goes away once I depress the clutch. It does seem to be louder in first and second gear as well. I have never noticed this prior to the BL install. I did not mess with any linkages during the BL install and perhaps that is my problem. I don't really know where to begin on this but I have a feeling that something is not adjusted correctly.
What should I be looking for? I am a true newbie in the clutch world. Any comments and suggestions greatly appreciated.
