Ya I know. I used to work at a Mobil 1 Lube Express.

I added the 5.25qt jug and a bit of the other quart before I started it up then checked the level it was a good 1/4" below min on the stick so I added the rest of the quart about 6.25 total according to the jugs and its a 1/4" over min on the stick.

mine dose that too^^^^^ whats the deal ?

not level surface or mabey clogged passages , idk

o.t. though , i took her in to the shop today for sway bar links , $25 each and 60 for labor

i tried yesterday but i dont have the tools or the patience after trying to fix 3 things last week and only got 1 (the speakers) done , i dont feel so bad though after seeing how hard it was to break the tq on those retarded torx bolts

it handles way way better without that driving on 7 wheels feeling any more

i asked the dude to break the tq on the axle nut then tq it back so it would make it easyer on me when i do it , he was like ''no omg i cant do that , it'll mess it up and it could break something!''

he just didnt want to deal with the same crap i was cussing over yesterday and slipped me some lie like i was a snot nosed noob

finding a new shop now after that ****

I replaced the RH front hub/ bearing this afternoon. It went very well, everything is torqued to spec, Loc-tite added, greased all the front end zerks with Valvoline Synthetic. A couple of the zerks needed to be persuaded, one puked muddy looking grease. None of the joints deflected with the fresh grease/ pump pressure! Amazing how quiet it is!
Huge amount of thanks to the FAQ tips!! I used my spare tire to keep the hub stationary; my ½” IR impact zipped the hub nut off dang near instantly. I used a 3/8” impact and spline sockets on the hub mounting bolts, zip & done! If you turn the tire by hand and not by the steering wheel, be prepared for air in your PS System!
I did notice that the disc brake pad mounts on the spindles had groves cut into them by the pad backing plates. I’ll have to run a weld bead on them and re-machine that area.
A quick note on air impact tools, they can only be as good as your compressor. A Ingersoll Rand middle to top of the line impact needs a lot more than 4 – 6cfm (as noted in a previous post). Most Impact’s (the butt kickin, nut bustin type) need a minimum of 7 – 11cfm @ 125 – 150 PSI or more. If you want a high quality, powerful shop tool, skip HF, and spend the money. You’ll have no regrets, less aggravation and perform better work. There are a lot of very good electric/ corded impacts. If you want a cordless, rechargeable, Snap-On’s 18v is awesome. Breaking suspensions down is easy with that brute!

I'm selling my ZJ and buying a Nissan juke

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals
