We finished it up today, threw it on my trailer, hauled it back up home to NY and took it for a few hot laps around town.
The front soaks up everything perfectly, no noise, harshness or loose feeling. Before, it was harsh, made a ton of noise and felt like the axle was going to fall out from under it. All the brake dive from the shackle reversal is gone too. Overall it feels like a new truck. It's hard to explain how well it works right out of the box. It rides smoother than both of our Cherokees and smoother than any TJ I've ever ridden in.
All that's left now is Shawn has to take it all apart and paint it tomorrow while I'm out fishing, then during the week hook up the ARB compressor, reconnect the downpipe to the catalytic converter, and do an aligment. We might take it out in the woods next weekend.
Not even 10 minutes after backing it off the trailer and driving it around, he was already talking about linking up the rear in the spring
