anybody have a centering pin do this?

was cleaning out some stuff an ran acorss this, figured I would throw it up here.

happened on my cherokee last summer. I gotta admit that theres not much worse than listening to the inside of your wheelwell cutting into 5 day old MT's as you drive the 30 miles back home.

Dunno exactly (that jeep was always wierd) Figure the plate on top of the leaf pack was a lil loose and just started shifting over time until it sheared it.

And your right deffinantly not cool at the time. I was up a 4x4 trail when it hapend an if I wasnt on a flat an going straight it would be dragging on the wheel well. Once I was on the road, I managed to hang far enough out the window that unless I was going around a corner it wouldnt rub much. Still the sound of 5 day old Khumo MT's getting cut like that was almost disgusting

I went down to NAPA an put it on the counter an said "I need one of these except longer an maybe straight" LOL shoulda saw the look on the guys face.

Cherokee's are known for having rear spring problems. I've read a bunch on that in the magazines and online. Not sure how related your problem is -- but I've heard they have something funny about them.

That was the only issue I ever had in the back end. And the jeep got used hard

It Loved to have electrical issues an the PITA also liked to have intermitant problems.

Thankfully its Somebody elses project now.
