I tried my 32x11.5s on my spare steelie and tried it on both front and rear.
If only my wheels had an inch less backspacing, then I could run them on the stock Upcountry suspension without them rubbing! On the street, at least...

Well I'm assuming the empty resevoir before I started bleeding something to do with it, but I did bleed all 4 brakes. And no, no proportioning valve. Do I need one?

I attempted to install my 231 in the rig, turns out the tc is a late 93. Now I have to find a different input gear due to not having to same gear cut.

Should be about 1 quart from the add line to the full line.

Nice. I have spider trax 1.25 ones I can't wait to get new rims and take them off though. Don't really trust them to much (personal opinion) mine has had some of the aluminum strip out around the lugs from torquing them.

Yea i don't plan on having them for too long, spidertrax are slightly more expensive so with similar good reviews I went for the RC. Just don't trust them that much either.

I double checked my measurements on my driveway alignment today. 57 1/2" in the front of the front wheels and 57 1/2" in the back of the front wheels, measured from corresponding lugs at the same height on the wheels. I guess I was a lot closer to 0 toe than I thought. I'd recommend a driveway alignment to all of you if you are in need of an alignment. You'll need a 15mm deep socket, channel locks (or vice grips or a pipe wrench), and a tape measure. It's stupid easy to do.

measure diagonal from front to rear and rear to front on other direction and then adjust what track bar? accordingly?

Is there a sticky on this? If not you should do one complete with pics, charts, diagrams ..... I did this many years ago just for a quick gotta go to work only vehicle on a Toyota, but it would be nice to have a thorough walk through sticky!

Measure across the front and then across the rear. Toe should be almost 0 degrees. Factory spec calls for a slightly negative toe for the 242 and I believe no toe for the 249. When using a tape measure, my research leads me to believe that a difference of 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch closer in front keeps 29 to 31 inch tires in factory spec. To adjust, you have to turn the adjusting sleeve on the tie rod. When you're finished up, measure, test drive it, get the front wheels pointed as close to perfectly straight as possible, then adjust the adjusting sleeve on the draglink to center the steering wheel. The wheel will be off center after you adjust the tie rod.

I believe there's a sticky somewhere in the TJ threads. They have LP30s like we do for stock axles.
