Welcome to the site, think the only way to post pics is through photo bucket and you copy and paste the img line of the pics here after you upload them there. As far as the gangster lean, you probly need to clock the rear torsion again to level it out. Big diameter of the torsion is 1" per spline when turned and the small end is 1/2" per spline. Jack the front up dead center on beam and measure the rear fenders to ground or any other identical spot towards the back of car

Ps. Front probly feels tight from being turned, my buddy has the same complaint about his link pin front end that was cut and turned a little excessively

Thanks for the info, I have read a couple of articles on adjusting the rear torsion, they made me nervous, chirco wants 150 plus parts might be my best option. Chirco also suggested a mesa 72 cooler with fan good choice ? Thanks Chuck

If you are not comfortable adjusting the torsion they might be the way to go, be aware that (plus parts) means you might be buying bushings if they feel Yors are worn out and there's a good chance they will be if there stock or have a ton of use. The reality is you only need to adjust the one side to match the other if ride height is fine. If you already have a remote filter sounds like the case is what they call (full flowed) where the oil leaves the pump and is directed out to the filter and then back in through the main galley through hoses, so adding a cooler is really easy at that point and beneficial in Tucson heat so I would try and work a package deal on the labor if you buy the cooler and have them adjust the torsions. I would've thought that someone else would've chimed in and gave some advice with all the reads, I think that I'm on the right track though

I added some more bolt holes after I aligned my rear end so it would never move on me again.

Dalton is showing the adjustable style spring plates that make leveling the car and adjusting the ride height a lot easier, they make a adjustable rear torsion housings for rails that do the same thing at the other end of the torsion bar, just to clear up what yor looking at

Thanks Azdrtdog and Dalton for the information, I hope my pics will show, i guess I have lots of decisions to make and money to spend it will take time and patience. Thanks for any and all advice. I will keep reading AZBaja forums. Nice roof rack Dalton , my wife really likes the yellow as well.
