Re: Advice needed ..Brake pedal pushes up when turning
If the YJ's are like the XJ, and I think they are, the front bearings are a sealed unit. I have had these get sloppy, affecting the endplay of the wheel. Usually you will hear them grinding or making strange noises when you turn. I have seen them go bad quietly though. The 33's put a lot of force on this bearing, and I wouldn't be suprised if it is flexing the bearing assembly, or has caused it to wear out prematurely. I would recommend changing to a regular spindle setup. I know it is a little costly, but with 33's it is well worth it. The manufacturers never seem to think about future upgrades, which is silly with a vehicle like the jeep. You might even consider looking for a D44 to swap in. Whatever you do, it is a good idea to get rid of the disconnect front axle, and go to a set of locking hubs. At any rate, I would jack up the Jeep and see if the front tires move when you push sideways at the top. You prpbably need new bearings in the front. I haven't owned a Jeep with that set-up without having to replace those crummy bearings, especially when I increased tire size over stock. If your rims have less backspacing than the stock wheels, this also greatly multiplies the force seen at the bearing. Again, regular spindles will greatly enhance the front end of your Jeep.
