Yeah, I was out at dinner and didn't really feel like getting my phone all greasy.

I was afraid I'd have to call the dealer if I couldn't find any. Thankfully Napa pulled through at 5:30 tonight.

OT: short arms done and new cam bolts showed up a half hour before our shop closes. Didn't get a chance to align it but so far no vibes and drives 100% better than before. All the OEM bushings nearly fell apart taking them out. I'll throw it up on the alignment rack tomorrow and dial her in. I'm stoked I can drive it now without it wandering all over the road.

Sorry, bad memory... looked at receipt again: $26.88.(compared to $115 after tax for two cam bolts on the wife's ZJ. I managed to save the washers & nuts on hers. Not so lucky on mine)
EDIT: make that "just under $27", not $21. My bad!
Still quite a difference either way.
I'm guessing mine were a cheap brand, since I had to remove the pressed on cam washer and rotate it 7 splines on one and 4 on the other in order for it to line up with the cam washer on the nut end of the bolt.

Bleh, all I did was find one thing after the other causing problems in the front end. I also suddenly developed a phantom brake fluid leak. The reservoir drained almost dry on me 2 days ago, I've traced every inch of brake line from caliper to abs and nothing. I've started to notice that when something goes bad on this ZJ it never does it the easy/expected way.

My torque converter wants to keep unlocking while in OD. Looked to be a half quart low but I don't think that would cause that all of a sudden. Any suggestions? Kinda funny I fix one issue yesterday and another starts today....gotta love jeeps lol.

Mine did that when I first got it.
My brake switch wasn't resting fully in place in it's mount.
It was sending a signal like I was using the brake pedal when I wasn't.
If the switch isn't fully depressed when the pedal returns to it's released position it makes the PCM think you're on the brakes, unlocking the converter.

That's weird, I blew my brake switch about a month ago, my brake lights were stuck on, and my torque converter still locked in OD

All I need in life is my Jeep, my guns, and my wrenches... And maybe some fine women too

Got mine stuck this morning going to work. I made a side trip and found out how far i can flex in it. I almost dropped a front spring and tucked my rear pass tire so far into the fender that it locked it completely down. I really need to get my 4wd fixed so i can play again.

Multiple contacts within one switch assembly.
One set can be bad while the other is still good.

On my drive home from work it shifted fine and acted as it should. I'm totally baffled by it's behavior this morning.

Drove a 150 mile round trip after work to look at what I thought was a set of four wheels, only to get there and find out it was only three. Came home empty handed, but at least the ZJ ran great.
