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!

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

It never fails. I didn't detail mine, but I did wash and vacuum it before work. I come out of work to find bird sh*t on my hood.

Installed my my hood louvers! But while I was cutting the first side I forgot to cover the wind shield and pitted it some! Will post up a pic in the morning when I have day light!

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.

Just finished removing my factory radiator support and tow hooks, to replace with a KOR radiator support. I was getting tired of smacking tow hooks against steep rocks.

I gained at least an inch of clearance measured from the tow hooks, plus the low point has been moved back even further which should increase my approach angle even more.
