No one is home right now so I'm gonna hafta wait for a lil bit before I have someone to drive it up and down the street so I can be outside the jeep and figure out which end its coming from. I hope its just something to do with the rear pads I put on yesterday and nothing to serious.
Well it turned out to be my e brake shoes were all kinds of messed up, so I ended up changing the brake shoes, the springs, the adjusters, and the rotors just for good measure since I put new pads on the back yesterday anyway.

Ran some Seafoam through the intake, and filled her up. But I started realizing that the battery is about to die. So tomorrow may be an Optima Redtop day And Tuesday may be new wheels and tires and alignment...

My Jeep is annoying me, so I violently kicked it.

The Jeep won, but my foot tells me the sills aren't as rotten as I thought they were

yesterday crwaled under my jeep to pick up something and found a cable going to a like swing mechanical thing thet went out of a hole from the other side, i was thingking this was the reason my hand brake is so high,

Today I did it, its first kind a difficult cause i cant put it back without removing about 2 large bolt an 2 small one'sfinally done it in an hour easily,
would have cost me a 100 with the mechanic( the stealer) so it was done only then I realize its connected to the transmission and its not the handbrake cable its the shifter swing and cable. very lucky had done it today
it would have been a disaster on the roadl

The pinion angle is good when you get the driveshaft to meet the pinion yoke at as close to a 90 degree angle as possible. The closer you get it, the less likely you are going to have driveline vibrations. The caster will also affect how fast the steering centers itself when you let go of the wheel coming off a turn. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of lifting our vehicles is having less caster to keep the pinion angle good.

jerbs...
operation 28 lbs of crap in a 1.8 lb bag was mostly a success..(also known as 3link front on zj)
front long arms doneski
My lowers ended up about 41&3/8" eye to eye to get numbers I liked, its funny how you run numbers on the off the shelf kits and have really poor geometry and caster cycling because of the cookie cutter link Mount locations.





tomorrow the springs go back in, knuckles get drilled out for steering and start on the rear crossmember....

Is the 90 degree rule still true for a cv style shaft? Thought with a cv style shaft you need to have the pinion pointing pretty much in line with the driveshaft.

Yes. The pinion should point directly at the transfer case. I always look at it as the pinion plane is in line with the pinion seal and the driveshaft plane is the driveshaft. Those planes should be perpendicular.

I've been thinking about plastidippin most of mine black but I might have to think about going the satin black route. That looks good!
