    Interesting I am within 1/8 inch or so of you with 97000 on my lift after the last go around, did replace the rear springs recently though which made a huge difference towed too many trailers and haul too much junk in the back

    This looks fun....

    2003 Renegade:
    Grey, Manual trans, 255/70r16 w/16x8's
    73,000 miles

    21" in the front
    20" in the rear, both side are exactly the same and on the button.

    Here's the kicker; I dont know what kind of lift it has nor any other modification done! I just bought it about 3,000 miles ago and it seems to have some suspension problems, ha:Dha:Dha:confused:ha:(ha:(......actually it's not funny!

    mine made more of a real low hum/ rumbling sound, not metal to metal ran it like that for 2 weeks, dropped it 1/2 inch and it went away so I know it wasn't tires etc. You could almost feel it more than actually hear it. If going for JBAs make sure you go with the 4.5s gives you a little more than the 3.5s I think

    I have not had any problems with our KJ yet regarding CV joints...
    But I have plenty of experience with my Mini which is also front wheel drive, inner and outer CV jointes and lifted with 9 inches of ground clearance!
    Sounds like you might want to inspect your wheel bearings!
