The instructions for the suspension? They are linked above in post #1. Or are you referring to something else?

This says you are an administrator for this, post #1 is where we can choose which lift we have and we click it and its supposed to give us a pdf of the installation instructions. We'll dude , it ain't working. Maybe you can fix it.

Since getting a set of instructions is impossible. How about letting me know what length i should set my control arms to be in the ball park to install for game changer 3.5 lift.

Putting aside that I asked you to EMAIL me the screenshots 🤪 - it looks like you can see Post #1. Your post above sounded like you were not seeing Post #1 at all.

Is the PDF is not downloading when you click the link? If so, that's a completely different issue that can do a lot with whatever browser you are using.

This is the link: JL Game Changer Suspension System, 6Pak Edition

Everyone on the YouTube says refer to your instructions. Seems ironic, how did they get instructions. How much do you have to spend to get instructions . Yes, i am a bit salty about this.

This is where the freakin website is sending us non administrators to get installation instructions. It should work, but it doesn't. Why should I go outside of this forum to get information. If this isn't the place to go, maybe they should try something different. Be nice, not everyone sluffs off there responsibilities.

So, did the link I just posted not work? We have an entire forum dedicated to instructions. Available to anyone. Anytime. Customer or not.

If you are not able to download the PDF, something is wrong with the tech at your end. If you were to email me as requested, I could email a link to you that might work better for you, avoiding whatever tech issue you are having with your browser and this forum.

I'm confused on the instructions.......Step E on page 7 states The stock rubber isolator will be re-used, but then the note on page 11 states that we must remove the stock isolators before installing the coil isolators? If I installed the coils using the stock rubber isolator, then is that what is causing my coils to bulge out? And yes, these are the MetalCloak springs. I only spray painted them blue to match the accent colors on the Jeep.

I'm having a similar issue (not that much bowing though) the instructions are extremely confusing in this area and 100% contradictory as you showed.. I just wasted about 10+hrs troubleshooting this issue and trying different things. Everything seemed fine for weeks after initial install, but recently the coil on front driver slide just slipped over and started rubbing on the extended bump tower. Noticed all the paint was missing. II would get it back in line by dropping the axle and then it would just slip back after driving it.. I tired rotating in different positions... nothing worked. I finally went back and looked over the instructions again and noticed the contradiction as well. I'm hoping to get confirmation tomorrow as this has been very frustrating and a huge time waster. My gut feeling was just to remove the isolators all together as they are very slick and slippery and can't seem to contain the spring.. I'll call and see what they have to say.

BTW, I'm only having the issue on driver front and I did put the isolators on with the stock ones.

I did verify with MC to discard and not use the factory isolators when the kit includes isolators for your application. Makes sense as the upper bucket cannot contain the supplied isolator when they are stacked. Sure whish the instructions would have simply stated it that way vs "the stock rubber isolators will be re-used". I highly recommend MC update the wording to stop throwing people off with wasted time and frustration.

Can we get some torque specs as well as default control arm and track bar length settings prior to installation?
