Got the springs for the last 3 corners, a day after the rest of the RC 4" kit. I might be able to find time to do the shocks today. Tomorrow I have help and a garage with an air compressor and air tools ready to do the lift. I have been shooting the threads with WD-40 and got the last rear track bar nut off (had to buy a big open/box-end and drive it on with a 4lb hammer). The rear bar is still in because the bolts won't come out now. Minana, minana I have been totally obsessed with this lift! I think it is a boyhood dream finally happening

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

Haven't done any big projects today, but I checked the oil. It's over the safe line somehow. Thought I was going to put in a new air filter, turns out there's a new one already in there from when my dad changed the oil a few weeks ago. Now I have a spare filter. Found some vacuum lines for the shift motor, which wasn't necessary as I just ordered the 4X4 Posi-Lock kit today.

WD= Water Dispersant. 40= fortieth formula.
WD40 does not remove rust, or loosen bolts.
It was developed for aircraft to disperse water from the windshield and fuselage.

Go buy yourself a can of PB Blaster at the local autoparts store like AutoZone.
That stuff is amazing to say the least.

You WILL send me a thank you PM after using it.

Congrats on the lift, make sure you post pics.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!
Zombies hate fast food.
Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!
