Today I finally found a decent place for an oil change since I live in a condo and cant do it myself since the condo association sucks! I went to Midas got synthetic blend put in for 34.95 with filter and disposal fees. I also had them do the Seafoam thing to my truck. OMG! it smoked so much I was there for about 45mins waiting on the smoke to go away.
However now it is driving a lot better. I was told my CV was shot though so I am going to need to look at a new one.
drove it to the shop for an oil change. also had them take a quick look at my front axle as it was rotating under load. they re tightened my lca bolts and even replaced my axle side track bar bolt for free. it was nice driving it again!

I fixed the power steering pressure line, when I started installing the lift on Tuesday I opened my hood to find most of my power steering fluid all over the underhood area of my ZJ. No more leaks for me!
And on a much better note, mounted and balanced my 35's, then installed them!
I turned mine right out with the help of a butane torch, & some PB Blaster.. If you didn't cut the heads off the bolts spray them with PB, and turn them out with a socket & ratchet. The problem is that the bolt is fused to the bushing due to age... Spray the bushings where the bolt goes through, heat it up, & turn them out.. If you had to, you could also drive them out with a punch & a BFH. Hope you have those replacement bolts, they're hard to find. Ask me how I know
Finding the bolts were the easiest my local shop had em in stock.
But now my rear trac bar bolt is doing the same so now I have another option before I cut em like I did control arms
picked a vacuum pump up from harbor freight 80 buck with the 20% off coupon, pumped the ac system down and refilled with 3 cans of 134 might need one more as presure drops and makes it cut in and out should get it in the morning.
