Oh one question for the forum....how do you remove a deep socket from the frame rail?

I bought a magnet on a flexible stick to do exactly that. It's saved a handful of my sockets now. I love it. $12 well spent at Advance.

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

I installed an Addco rear sway bar and Energy Suspension end links today.
But I think the upper control arms are gonna hit them as they articulate.... Have to build some spacers for the sway bar mounts I guess.

Bad News: Spent 3 hours (yes, three, hours) trying to get my upper passenger control arm in. The bracket was bent down to the 250,000 mile stock control arm. When I finally got my new one it, it wont line up. The old one was so worn down I think it shifted the axle making the new one impossible to line up. Oh, and I ran out of beer.

Good News: I ordered Kolak's 3" exhaust, so I'll just have my shop put on the front lower control arms when they weld & install my exhaust.

Received my Thorley headers, which I'll be putting in tomorrow/Sunday. I'll post up a video of new V8 noises when it's all back together.

Poked a hole in the radiator. So tomorrow im getting a new one, replacing the intake gaskets, timing chain, timing cover gaskets water pump,and doing an oil change. Hopefully the plenum gasket and timing chain help out on the fuel mileage im only getting 10mpg on the hwy.

I was wondering the same thing. I took a corner, gave it some gas, then outta nowhere... "RROOOAAARRRRRRRR" went the ZJ. Pulled over to see my exhaust separated in half. Got a coat hanger to hold things from hitting the road, and went back on my way. At least it's somehow a clean break, so a cheap clamp should hold things together while I spend money fixing more important stuff.

edit: I need some opinions from you guys. My ZJ has headers, but they're quiiiite old - I think they're the mike leach headers. I think some welds in the collectors have cracked. Is it possible to have them re-welded/fixed? Or would that not last long?

Only reason I ask is because as everyone knows, the Thorleys are waaaayyyyy too expensive at $7-800.
