I'll add to the very happy with the Bilsteins, almost a soft ride on the road, yet very fast response on bad roads. A great mix of control & comfort.

Took it to a muffler shop to get my exhaust moved away from my driveshaft. Found out I've got holes in my flowmaster, and my rear passenger axle seal is leaking.

Get a tie rod end puller from a local auto store cheap to buy or you can rent from some stores. They work wonders!

I was using a rented tie rod puller until I snapped an ear off, so I switched to the pickle fork, a torch, and a hammer. Still no dice. If I didn't need it running a week from tomorrow, I'd just get an angle grinder, cut the pitman arm off, and wait for a rockauto replacement to come in. But, I need it running by a week from tomorrow, otherwise I can't make it to school.

My Zj dont like me,

Im beginning to think that this jeep do not like me, aside from showing defects and failures one after the other, it keeps easy work to come hard.

as i previously posted broke 1 pulley which lead to another pulley and bolt and belt problem, now IGot all those parts and an easy job of removing the adjuster pulley, became complicated, the bolt snap, which is just a remedy bolt, and the spacer for the guide that runs up and down, its like a thick washer fell off, where? nowhere to be seen, so i rocked the bumper, heared
a noise once and disappread, i got to crawl down get grease on my arms, and finally able to loacte it, after 1 hour, it was stuck under the radiator and
yhe chassis, with no space to move it. Got it out, change the 2 pulleys, the tensioner bolt and the new belt, all good and done in 5 min.

I said to my self this jeep really dont like me.

May as well do both seals and bearing then. Not hard to do at all.

fixed the ruined cat after scraping it half off on some rocks. replaced with a tube. sounds awesome. was standing next to a purple (yes, purple) new challenger and the guy actually asked ME to rev it up cause it sounds badass on idle. (ANY american car is really rare in this part of europe). after i gave it a few revs, he was kinda jealous, said HI and just barely accelerated and turned at the next intersection. i bet he went to look for a new exhaust.
cant find my ego now. its still somewhere in the clouds lol

I can see doing the bearing behind the leaking seal while I'm in there. But why do the other side if it's not broken? I don't have any noise coming from the rear.
