From 8-2 I changed out my factory CAs for IROs 3-6in lift fixed CAs. I was useing my buddy's lift thank god with out it I would have been lost. Not an at home job if you didn't change them out whn you lifted in the first place LIKE I SHOULDVE! Anyway it was a BI73h but overall geting the bolts out took the most time besides pulling back the rear with a tie sowing strap. But it works. The ride is so much better and the axles are straight now.

Well I went to redbox tonight noticed my back passenger wheel was leaking some type of fluid from the lugs. Its dry now but its still noticeable it doesn't smell like diff oil. Didn't look at the back of the tire (its dark out). Can anything leak out of the lugs? Just scares me I replaced that bearing and seal about a month or so ago and don't really wanna do it again :/.

Ugh, pass side rear brakes took 20 minutes, driver side took two hours.

Took an O2/map torch and a mini sledge to get the damn rotor off, but no more noisy rear end!

You'll end up cheaper than the local parts store, even with your employee discount. Trust me, I spent 7 years working for the Green Mafia.
I've considered Prime, but the only O'Reilly part I'm buying for the Jeep right now is the drag link. ($30 after discount) The rest I'm going aftermarket, because I don't want this stuff breaking again.
