97 Skyjacker 4" - vibration
I've installed a Skyjacker 4" lift kit to my 97 4wd Super Ranger, wow, what an experience for a novice.
Initially the rear looked way too much higher than the front so I removed the stock 2" blocks. The rear is now only slightly higher than the front.
The leaf springs in the kit came with shims attached.
However, when accelerating quickly there is a LOT of vibration. I finally took it to a professional and his thoughts:
- the drive shaft is almost an inch farther forward than it should be. We measured the wheel base, door label states 125 and it's about 124.2.
- the pinion angle is not right
- possibly the leaf springs are shorter than the original (front bolt to center pin).
He now has my old springs and will measure them tomorrow and compare.
Anyone seen this problem before?
