On page 26 - installing rear coils, it says to orient with the tightly wound coils facing DOWNWARD.  Is that correct?  The fronts upward and the rears downward?  Doesn't look like that in the picture.

The term "tightly wound" does not refer to the stack of light rate coils - it refers to the tighter pig tail of the coils.

On the 2016 JK the upper control arms are backed by a flag nut against the frame. You don't need a socket through the frame like it says step 4 part A.

I am wondering the same thing. Why not just list it in the instructions? Doing my lift on Monday.

I've noticed some rubbing from my sway bars and a tubular part of the frame. This is apparently common according to a few forums out there (https://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/front-sway-bar-rubbing-on-frame-1352065.html). You can see from the pictures where there is some definite metal on metal contact. Is this an alignment problem or should I grind off part of that tube?

That section of tube is of different size Jeep to Jeep. Line up 10 JK's and you will see 10 different measurements for that section of tube sticking out. Therefore, if yours is rubbing, you will need to grind it down for clearance.

Matson,

Thanks for the info! It took 15 minutes out of a Saturday and a buffer wheel to fix that. Appreciate the help man.
