Has anyone has an issue with twisting the arm on the front Currie Antirock.

Driverside is real bad and passanger has a small twist. The bent at the bend in the arm. The arms have full clearance and don't come in contact with anything.

Current set up is RK 5.5 mid arm and PP steering linkage on 35's.

Do you have aluminum or steel?

I cut out that far side of the body mount brackets on install of the Antirock.
I had no issues with my old lift "4 inch superlift" This was the first run with the RK.

We have run them on two of our JKs with no problems. We had problems with the rear arms but they have fixed that with different rear arm.

I will be calling them later, but I still want to run that set up. I want to find out why this happend still so I can fix the issue. I know there are a few on here with those, and I wanted to see if I missed something?

Just looked at mine and they are as straight as the day I put them in. The left rear is running real close to the trackbar bracket though. I have some suspension mods I'm hoping to get to this weekend. I'm going to take a very close look at the Currie's then.

Not the best pic, but this angle shows the twist.
That's some serious ****! Could you have articulated your axle so far down that the arm bounced off a rock or something? I'm having trouble picturing how that could have happened.

1500' above you. :beer:

I thought the same, but there are no signs of impact on the arm? The trail I was on is a very mellow trail, lots of woops, not alot of rocks. I just wanted to compress the new springs a little and get the new arms to flex out before a more challenging trail.

I'll be as high as you someday:beer:

how does it look at full compression when articulated? MAybee the angle of the axle and the length of the links? Are there rub marks on the side of the antirock arm or am I seeing stuff?

Kinda hard to visulize from the pic

Yea the sticker has a rub mark on it from the tire, but that was from the day of insatll moving my Jeep to a different bay before install was complete.

I don't have any pics of full flex, but I see were your coming from on the length of the links. I may put a tire on a lift and watch it as it flex's.
