Re: SpUA Pan Hard?

Perhaps a little clarity here.
I have RUF OMEmus and revolver shackles with a 2" B/lift and 31's on 8" rims.
Vitara power steer too. I am constantly getting wobbles and am beginning to think that I need A. A drop pitman arm, or B. a Panhard to tighten up the front suspension as there are so many pivot points.
Any thoughts ?
Alf.

Re: SpUA Pan Hard?

Are all the eye bushings in good condition and preferably poly? Are the shackles a welded ladder design
or loose plates bolted? Are the wheel and kingpin bearings properly adjueted? Is the castor properly set?

I'd make sure all these are up to snuff first.

Re: SpUA Pan Hard?

yeah..I dont know diddly about mechanical stuff compared to Outlaw, but the first thing i would have said is bushings. I have been puzzling over why my SPUA YJ m/l suspension is NOT loose and floppy when so many other people complain about that type of issue and I am willing to chalk it up to:

I use poly bushings in great shape all around.

I use good shocks (Rancho 9000x)

I don't have power steering, so the forces acting on the suspension are not as great as yours and may not beat the bushings as badly, but in addition to the things OUtlaw mentioned, I second the vote on the things i mentioned.

As Outlaw says, check to make sure everything is tight and adjusted properly. In a frontend like yours, and mine, all a panhard will do is mask the problem. Find and fix the slop first [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
