Just curious, how do you only get mostly done with grounding out 1 wire?

Well, I was going to do it under the dash, but not enough room/slack. So I pulled the door panel off. Soldering gun took forever to heat up. Just have to screw it to the inside of the door and put the panel back on. Plus, like I said, didn't have much time between honey-do and actual work. I'm a little slow, but I get stuff done.

She aint Clean, but the Steering stops are where i put the washers.

No problem. It solved from me rubbing on my lower control arms.

Pretty far away but i think I hear play in the tie rod ends when you moved the tire side to side. Up and down "looked" good but it was kind of far to see in the vid. Could be the track bar too. Or it maybe fine.

Said good bye to it.

Hit so hard that my seat had bent 4" away from the door, and the rear sears were broken from the force of my tools hitting them.

Been driving the 5.9 for the last couple weeks since weather has been getting better. Can't decide if I want new wheels or sell it and fund another project. I know....ADD/OCD working at it's best there...

Sold the last of the miscellaneous crap from the last niner to fund new tranny/motor mounts from Andy. I can move my whole drive train about 2" with one hand.

My pass side mount was floating. The other two were squashed. IRON MAN!

So after driving with both addco front and rear sway bars, OME coils, and Bilstein shocks, I think it handles like a Porsche. Ok not quite but close. Taking corners has never been more fun. Next on the list is a steering box brace.

You haven't driven a sporty ZJ until you've felt H&Rs, Bilsteins, Addco sways, some sticky rubbers, and Andy's mounts. My last niner wasn't quite that done up (missing the Addco rear and Bilsteins), but it'd still out handle my SC and my BMW. RaceJeep things...

In other news, the new niner will be getting a Helwig rear sway instead of Addco.

Let me know how you like that rear sway, I gotta do something to mine as well. After I do andy's mounts on both jeeps, and rebuild the cooling system on the green one, and, well, it's a long list.
