Not bad on that deal.

I am putting in my adjustable control arms now, just took out my driver's lower, man that bushing was toast! Hopefully solves my clunk.

Anyone know what size the front upper control arm torx head bolt is? IRO told me T55 so I picked one up, to big.

T55 is right. Get two ready for when you snap one. Clean the t55 hole really well And heat the bolt.

Really? It was way to big for mine. I picked up a T50 I will see if that works. They are soaking in JB right now.. Hope it helps.

Nice Jeep, get some alum wheels you will be glad you did.
On topic, added 4 new Firestone A/T 235-75/15 gained 1" height over stock 215's. Also new Moog swaybar links and 4 new Monroe loadleveler shocks. Hoping not to loose this one in the snow and spin it into the Indiana limestone.

I hate my alum rims. They get corrosion on them and get stuck, so if you need to change then you'll need a rubber mallet.

Did a test today, filled up the gas tank and picked up 400 pounds (10 bags) of Dry Stall (horse bedding)
My lift is a RE8300 4.5" long arm kit, looks like it dropped the back about 2"
I was doing this test checking for a knocking noise, this made the rear drive shaft alignment straight but I still had a knocking noise when coasting under or near no load.


Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.
