I have been hearing some bearing noise and I think it's the alternator... If it is, could that be why my AC fan isn't working, or are the two unrelated?

There's no e-fan on a 5.2 ZJ. Just the clutch fan, nothing special to kick on when the A/C is on. If the A/C isn't cold when you're stopped, replace the fan clutch.

Ah no... Can't say that it does. Maybe invest in some metal hose clamps? I suppose those would work quite a bit better than the stock plastic ones.

Did some pokin around so I am a little more prepared on replacing my sway bars. Gonna be fun doin the rear with the diff and armored tank back there.

Replaced a few O-rings in my low & hi side A/C lines, vacuumed and recharged the A/C. Now I need to fix the leaking gasket around my evap drain so my passenger floorboard doesn't get soaked.

I have a spare alternator if you need one...

I stopped at an exhaust shop to get a quote on having the exhaust redone. Asked for a new 2.25" y pipe merging to 3" high flow cat to a 3" muffler then asked for the price on a single 3" out, everything mandrel bent. The other option was dual 2.25" outs mandrel bending for the y pipe and regular bending for over the axle and out. My jaw about hit the floor. $1000 either way. I then asked if that was for stainless. Nope that's for aluminized piping.

I need to do some shopping. Thats just nuts! I got true duels from headers back on my old sbc 350 in a pickup for about $250 parts+ $350 labor about 3 years ago. I know prices have gone up but damn. I was hoping from this guy to hear $600-700 for everything

Back to the drawin board.
