Re: Pics of YJs or CJs with a lot a flex...

I also need to come up with a graph or 2 to throw in this 15 page report. But I have no idea what kinda graph I can find in the suspension world, and were to even start looking. The purpose of my report will demonstrate how to properly enhance a vehicles suspension, for maximum gains in articulation, wheel travel, tire and wheel clearance, approach and departure angles, and how to prevent common problems that plague lifted vehicles, like axle wrap, different from stock steering, possibility of roll over, damage to vehicle, driveline vibration. Thats what I got so far for the purpose, any other ideas/comments you guys wanna toss my way I will be more then happy. The teacher offers lots of help with our topics, only problem is he don't know crap about off road suspension. Thanks a lot.

Maybe graph the differences in coil spring vs. leaf spring spring rates per inch of lift? Thats about all I can do to help.

Not a extreme amount of flex, but the springs are still brand new...

Re: Pics of YJs or CJs with a lot a flex...

Am I seeing things? Looks like in all the pics except the last one the rear's flexing much more than the front.

The body tends to stay with the front more.

Is that the preferred way?
