  1. Adjustable Coilover strut kits by Maxpeeding Rods?

    Suspension and Tires
    Hey all, I've been looking for alternatives for the STU lift kit, as their site page seems to be down, and I'm not sure where else to get them. I came across these adjustable height coilovers by Maxpeeding Rods, but the description is pretty lame. Not sure if they are intended to lower or lift...

  4. 2007 Jeep Patriot Limited FWD Torque Steer

    Suspension and Tires
    When accelerating my 2007 Patriot Limited FWD will pull to the left. I have to turn the wheel to about 1 o'clock to offset the torque steering. When off the accelerator the vehicle drives straight. The History: I have new-ish tires with less than 10k on them. Even wear and properly inflated...
  5. Toe Link Change

    Suspension and Tires
    I'm trying to change the toe link on my 2008 Jeep Patriot and I cannot figure out how to get the bolt that's fastened to the trailing arm to release. I've put a ton of torque on it with a breaker bar, impact, everything I can think of, and nothing moves. Is there a trick to it?

  13. Patriot Body lift

    Suspension and Tires
    I am interested in lifting my Patriot, but I find the rro lift kit a bit costly for the amount of lift you get. I found a body lift that is supposed to fit a patriot and would be able to lift it 4 inches for about 60 dollars. I asume this will be at the cost of ride comfort which does not...

    I just returned from my tire dealer having purchased my first tire replacement at 50,000 miles. New Hankook H724s. The dealer corrected the front end alignment but told me that the rear was out of spec and could not be adjusted. He said he called the local Jeep dealer and they were no help...
