Taking a short dinner break right now while I'm putting my new tranny in. All that's left is linkages, dip stick tube, cross member, drive shafts, and TC skid. There are a lot easier things to do alone.

Removed and repainted license plate bezel then reinstalled.

Removed headliner to recover.

Pulled center console to repair broken mounting holes at bottom of armrest storage compartment.

Went to the junkyard and scored some like new factory head light lenses on a recently junked ZJ.

Installed my new to me Bilsteins in the rear. Fender to hub is a quarter inch higher than before. Didn't think that would make a difference. Getting up early to do the front.

Rather than doing bushings you really need longer rear uppers and lowers to get the axle where it belongs.

/\well when i can afford adjustables thats what ill do...i just spent ~$1800 on lift and tires and cant afford to buy new arms for a couple paydays. Itll get there, but as long as im on factorys, 20 bucks and a 15 min job to solve death wobble is a no brainer, i gotta be able to drive to work to make more money to buy more parts

Looks like you up about 4" or so right? Adjustables are nice but fixed rear uppers and lowers are all you need. Mine is lifted 4.5", rough country fixed upper and lower in the rear and fixed lower in the front. Axles are perfect.

How the hell did it cost you $1800 for a lift and tires and they didnt include control arms with the left? Did you install it or have it done and that includes labor?

Nice always nice to do it yourself. I put stock 5.9 ZJ front coils in the rear which gave me 4", Rubicon Express rear track bar, Rough Country upper and lower arms in the back, stock JK Rubicon shocks in the back, front is 3" Skyjacker coils with a 1" puck, Skyjacker trackbar, stock JK Rubicon shocks, Rough Country lower arms stock uppers. Total investment on the lift is less than half what you paid. Sometimes its worth it to build your own kit and shop around find stuff cheap on forums.

5.9 front coils $ Free
Front 3" Skyjacker coils $ Free
1" pucks for the front $15
Rear Rubicon Express adjustable bar $65 NEW on Amazon
Front Skyjacker Adjustable high mount bar $100 used on CL
All 6 brand new Rough Country fixed control arms $150 on one of the facebook jeep pages
Used low mileage JK Ruby shocks $30 for all 4
