So you're saying they're bad?

the front 1660 with a heim joint?

ya they last about 5 months then heim wears out and starts clicking. if you haven't, go buy a new heim when they go on sale and get used to changing them.

that is, unless you never drive in mud or dirt. ever. then you'll be fine

Thats the one..I live on a 3.5 mile dirt road so it sees plenty of mud and dirt. Go to know though. I will keep an eye (and ear) out for it. So far, no issues

looks like im buying a new heim joint before i change the bushings and my u-joints

are there longer replacement parts for lifts over that specific height?

Brian's jeep looks awesome. Any more feed back on this RE front track bar. I'm gathering parts for my 97 ZJ and saw this one on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Rubicon-Expres...gy_auto_text_y

Brian's IRO one is awesome. I ended up getting the RE front and rear. They were 185 for the both of them on Amazon shipped. It seemed like a pretty good deal.

I checked out the reviews and they were all pretty positive. Once I do the lift and install them I'll report back. Just bought black steelies, got the track bars, just have to figure out my lift.

From what I've researched that 4" Zone kit is a pretty awesome deal, I might just wait a little longer and save up for it. If comes with quite a bit of stuff.

My ZJ's 16 years old, so I wanted to do all new coils with a decent ride and lower control arms. The Zone kit has all that in it with free shipping.

The only reason I suggested the IRO up front is because of the Trackbar relocation bracket it comes with is pure beef. IDK if the RE comes with or not. I know the rear dosen't but its not needed.

I've read some pretty mixed reviews on Rusty's customer service and quality, FYI.
