Bought some synthetic trans. fluid for the t case. Bought a big enough allen wrench to change the fluid. Bought a transfer pump to change the diff oil. Looked everywhere for synthetic 75-140 gear oil for the diffs. None to be found under $20.00 a quart and I need at least 3 maybe 4 quarts and no one had 4 quarts. Then I ran over my muffler when it fell off. When I checked how bad it was I noticed the converter was rusted through and the O2 sensor was barely hanging in there. FML. I have some work to do and money to spend. It does really sound bad *** through just the converter though. Lol. Looks like a trip to Summit is in my future. At least they will have my gear oil. SMH.

I have the towing package. 75-140 is the recomended gear oil. I don't tow a thing and am about to buy 80-90. ATF +, screw that. I found dex syn on sale and thats what its getting. From what I understand as long as the tc has some type of oil it should be okay. As far synthetic goes, not a user as far as oil goes but in diffs, tc's, and transmissions (parts that need fluid changes every 30,000 miles) I like the piece of mind it gives me and the percieved benifits (whether real or not). Piece of mind I guess. (whether real or not.)

yesterday; replaced front and rear lower procrap arms with beefier RC units with clevite bushings. no longer could drive above 30mph due to rear driveline vibration from ****ty pinion angle from longer rear lower arms.

today; reinstalled procrap lower rear arms until i get adjustable upper arms. at least i can drive above 30mph again.

You should never have the need to disco the rear, stock swaybar off road. It doesn't add any flexibility. It's mainly there for on road stability. A bunch of "seasoned vets" on here will argue keeping it on at all times as well.

Getting closer to the core replacements. Just waiting for more funds. Its starting to cool off here so I'm not looking forward to the elements. Just hope the heater core doesn't blow before I get to it. Oil change{all} needs doing. Ordered a new trans pan and want to put a bung in it. Question there is weld or not to weld? Welding shop did a good job on the diff cover but the trans pan is thinner material. Jegs has a good selection of fittings.

I have my rear hooked up and just haven't got around to hooking my front back up, ya know, because it's just SO difficult to hook it back up....
I only drive 6 miles to work and 6 miles back. No highway driving, period!
If I did do highway driving, I prolly woulda paid attention to what I did with the bushings, bushing cups, and the nuts when I put in my lift....

I discoed my rear and it actually did help me climb this stump one time, I tried it with it connected and couldn't keep my tires on the ground, disconnected I went right up. That's my personal experience, though I'm not the most experienced it did help me out in that one instance.

Disco-ing it can help a little bit in some situations. It'll add about 2" of downtravel when at full flex in the rear (assuming stock height). If you're running UC springs or something else stiffer in the rear the slight stability drop from removing likely won't be an issue. Once I re-do my spring / shock setup to stiffen things up a bit I'll probably end up deleting the rear sway bar.
