They figured something out and it works. I don't know what they did but at least the sway bar works now I don't know about anything else. Haven't had a ton of time to look at it. I guess I should've shot some pictures, but it's working.

Hahaha, you didn't ask them what they had to do when you picked it up?

Probably more caster to stop the coil from bowing out

They were closed. I dropped it off Sunday night left the money and picked it up Monday after work.

Glad that issue is resolved...as we have someone with as little as 3" running the alpha kit with arms identical to the ones you received.

I also am running it on around 5.5" of lift with a currie anti rock (which sticks back quite a bit) and have no issues. As I stated initially I believe this was a castor issue since the coils appeared to be bowed out a bit and the pinion looked off by a bit.

There is a floorboard brace that needs clearancing to fit the side Tie-in brackets. Additionally, the Comanche has a bracket on the inside of the frame that the stock crossmember also bolts to that has to be removed on the drivers side. Also on the driver side, the fuel lines run around this bracket, and are in the way of the Upper 3rd link joint. We are trying to think of a way to move these fuel lines out of the way. other wise, we may need to cut the "U" out of the fuel lines and splice in straight lines like a Cherokee.

So yet again a deadline that Cavfab gave me on sending my parts out has come and passed with nothing to show for it. On 5-20-2017 they told me that my parts would ship out the either the 22nd or the 23rd so I would be able to get the jeep put together this weekend. Today I messaged them and they told me that they are waiting on around 30 axle side upper control arm brackets and they can't tell me when they will receive them and be able to ship out my parts. After all these months after we paid them they still don't have all of the parts they need to complete our orders.
