To adjust your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee to an optimized position, bigger tires are ideal for perfect handling and stability off-road. However, it’s not always successful because you may run into rubbing issues against suspension or strut. 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee spacers is a great solution because they are much more affordable and easy to install compared with fewer backspacing wheels, especially when you have had wheels you like.
How To Choose The Type of 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Spacers?
Before the specific illustration of the installation of 2022 Jeep Cherokee spacers, you need to make sure you’ve bought the safe type of spacers. Compared to slip-on wheel spacers, bolt-on 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee spacers are more recommended. Slip-on spacers mean the spacers are directly placed between the axle and the wheel through the original lug studs, which is dangerous because the factory studs have to stand the load of spacers and wheel, and the thickness of the spacers will also decrease the thread engagement left for the lug nuts.
Bolt-on 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee spacers are equipped with studs on the spacers mate that have the same specs as the factory studs. Bolt-on spacers are hung on the original studs and then the wheel is placed on the spacer’s studs so that dispersing the stress and increase safety.
However, the studs and lug nuts that come with 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee spacers must be machined with a high standard to withstand the giant weight of the wheel and the load during moderation. Bonoss forged active cooling wheel spacers come with studs that are made of Forged JIS SCM440. The Grade 12.9 wheel studs have a higher level than 10.9 factory studs.
They are tougher to support a giant load of wheel system with better-than-factory performance such as the 1220Mpa Tensile Strengthwhich is higher than 1040Mpa factory spec, 152,000N Ultimate Tensile Load which is higher than 130,000 N factory spec, and 121,000N Proof Load which is higher than 104,000N factory one.
Lift Jeep safely. Park your Jeep Grand Cherokee in an even place and lift it to a moderate height with a jack. Make sure you’ve flamed out your Jeep and don’t stick your head or body under the vehicle.
Remove the rust. If you have run your Grand Cherokee for a long time, there must be lots of rust on the axle. Use the lubrication spray and sandpaper to clean the axle carefully and then wipe the liquid on the axle and other components. The rust on the axle will affect the proper torque of lug nuts and also damage the surface of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee spacers.
Put on the spacers. Put the bolt-on 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee spacers through the factory studs and use the matching lug nuts to tighten them. You could paint a little thread locker inside the lug nuts, which could protect the lug nuts from vibration, rusting, and being stuck.
Torque lug nuts. When torquing the lug nuts, you need to go in a star pattern, which means torquing them diagonally in order to keep each lug nuts in a balanced position. The other important point is the torque applied on the lug nut should be adjusted to nearly 150-160 Nm. Don’t worry about the specific spec. Using the torque wrench will tell you the right spec as it clicks. A tip for safety is to let a friend help you hit the brake to ensure the axle will not rotate as you torque.
Put back the wheel. Move the wheel back through the studs on the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee spacers, and then use your original lug nuts to tighten the wheel with the same torquing steps as above.
Retorque lug nuts. After all the installation steps, it’s recommended to drive your Grand Cherokee in a distance to check the wheel track. If there’s anything strange, take more patience to retorque the two sets of lug nuts. Anything related to safety should not be ignored.
