Today I fixed the last of the steering issues on my 96 ZJ!!! FINALLY!!!

Problem was a wallowed out hole on the front track bar axle mount. Everything else has been replaced, Rusty's adjustable track bar with HD frame mount, IRO over the knuckle solid 1.25" steel tie rod and drag link with 5/8" hardware, new Moog upper and lower ball joints, new steering box with drop pitman arm, and a steering box brace.

I dont have inspections. Plus the PO removed the bulb.

Plus I can swap all my stuff over. Not that big of a deal. Not like its hard to do.

No you just have to swap the axle shafts over and knuckles and wheel sensors. Not worth the headache. Get a HP 30 from an XJ with ABS which has stronger u joints and obviously doesnt have the POS cv axle shafts. I have a front ZJ driveshaft with the u joint on the axle side if your interested PM me and we'll figure out a price with shipping.

Platinum 5.9 2.25" engine pipes 3" Magnaflow cat, 3" Hooker Aerochamber, 3" tail pipe, Ported kegger, 52MM Throttle Body, 24lb injectors, K&N drop in filter, Cast JEEP valve covers, MSD coil and wires, All new 6 piece clear light kit, 255/65/16 General Grabber HTS, 242 conversion, XJ u-joint front axle shafts

Didn't do much but had fun because I own a JEEP

I played around in the snow storm last night and decided since our parking lot at work didn't get plowed I would slide around a bit before we opened. Then had to put $58 into that lovely gas tank
