Charlie, the tie rod was pretty clean for 180k miles huh? Gotta love a Arizona native vehicle.

Haha, yes, it is installed. And wow, that thing looks brand new!! Thanks again.


Ah, went and bought a 1/2 inch breaker bar and could finally muscle the body side trackbar vertical bolts into submission. Got those tightened up and there is no more clunk! YEA!

Tomorrow I'm going wheeling at this local place to get some flexing pictures. Giggity giggity!

Well I've got some more rubbing....



That's looking upwards toward the back of my rig on the passenger side. Where my tierod and draglink connect hits the bottom of my Quick disconnect. Any ideas?

I knew I should have sent you my drag link as well. It has been custom bent to solve that very problem.

And that is why I am using the JKS extended sway bar mounts on mine.

I bought them thru Kevin

Or like I said my old drag link was bent so it would not make contact at that spot. And that part is still available if it is needed.

Are those swaybar extenders something I have to cut off the old ones and weld on these?
