upper a-frames
#1
After mounting my new tires from CJ's, I noticed that the front edge of the upper A-frame is very close to the tire, less than a 1/4", is this normal? I do not have the motor and trans in yet so there is no weight up front, also, my front shocks won't pull over under the mounting bracket as the spring perches are VERY stiff. Will all this go back to normal once I have weight back in the front end? I adjusted the lower control arms to what I think makes the wheels straight, and have tried to align front end as CLOSE as I can before alignment. Thanks to everybody for their patience with me, I know I ask a lot of questions, but I just want to get my baby RIGHT!!

Can you post a picture of the area that you are concerned with and I'll check on my car. What size is the tire you're using?
