Question, if I pull my oil pan and find chunks of metal, what should I do? I haven't pulled it yet but I believe my main cause for knocking is from a piston skirt issue like many others.

Worst case scenario - I have a new oil pan gasket

Best Case Scenario - I fix my knock.

What all needs to be done IF I find that one of the pistons are bad, just replace one or do I have to change them all out?

swapped front springs to rear sunday and put 3" lift springs in the front. somehow come out to about 4" in rear and 2" in the front. debating on going spacers or finding better springs. also looking into adjustable track bars since my rear axle slid so far to the right you can see it when standing behind the jeep. anyone knows of good brand for cheap price pls let me know.
