as for breaking bolts im gonna hit everything with PB Blaster and use a Propane/Mapp gas Torch to heat stubborn parts and im gonna use Anti-seize (sp?)


as for brakes they are fine just had the XJ in the shop a few weeks ago to get them looked at


about how long will it take to put on my lift? this will be my first big vehicle project..

Probably a good day or two, depending if you have help or not. The rear is a breeze, the front takes up more time.

yea plan on a couple days for the lift. espcially if it is more complete (control arms, track bar mount etc) and maybe 1/2 day or a day for the SYE depending on mechanical skills and or help.

you should be alright, but your world would be a whole lot eaiser if you did. just make sure to get the PB blaster on there like a day before and keep soaking untill the time has come. oh yea make sure to have a couple beefy friend cuz some of the bolts are a *****! and if you cherokee isnt very old (late 90's) i wouldnt be too concerned about breaking bolts, yet it still does happen. well i can only say good luck to you at this point

Rear shock bolts will almost always break. Walton99 and myself had to use an airchisel to get the rest of the bolt out. I cant imagine how long it would have taken if we didnt have air tools.

ive yet to break a bolt on my jeep, but like i said it probably depends on climate etc. like if you live on the coast or around water you probably will have more corrosion to deal with, but with me being out in the desert i didnt have any problems. when i did my leafs I got one done at my grandpa's with air tools and such then i did the other one in my driveway with hand tools, and it didnt seem to take any longer with just hand tools
