Well I took my ZJ in for a front end alignment on Monday they couldn't do it because my TrackLink Bar was bad so i went to Napa and picked up a repalcement bar and went back to the shop they replaced it and did the alignment and now withthe new steering damper on it is a bit better BUT they would NOT adjust the steering gear box they said that it woudl cause the geers to wear oout faster, and they went on to say that yes there is a lot of play in my steering and that they know I jsut put a new gear box on that if i'm not satisfied with the steering play that I shoudl just go out and get another NEW steering gearbox! I said i am NOT paying another 150.00 for a new gear box and another 120 it have it installed AND another front end alignment done! i'll jsut go and find someone else that WILL do the steering adjustment for me for crying out loud, BUT my handling is a bit tighter now with the new damper and track bar no more Death Wobble!does anyone have any opnions on wither to upgrade to ceranmic brake pads or not? will they last longer than composit onesi've got a shop that when i'm ready to replace my brakes if I bring in the rotors they will put them on for the same prive as the pads at the same time,so i'm thinking about getting a new set of slotted and drilled rotors and ceranmic pads. any input iwooudl be greatly appreciated.

Start learning how to do those things yourself, save yourself a lot of money on labor. ESP while owning a zj.

As far as brakes, I've always used the cheap semi-metallics. They're plenty of braking, unless you drive a sports car. (Note: I've used composite brakes once, on my old RX7. Totally worth it for that application)

Didn't do anything yet other than plan on driving it to work.. Went out this morning & started it up... Moved my car out from behind it, & parked the jeep in the street. Shut the jeep off, put car back in driveway then 10 mins later jeep would keep cranking with no start. 10 mins later it started, so I let it run, shut it off for less than 30 seconds & tried starting it... Once again, crank, no start. Just ended up leaving it & driving car to work.. Had someone at my house try it like an hour later, they started it & shut it off 4 times with no issues. They backed it into the driveway, shut it off then tried to start it. Once again, crank & no start. Gonna have to check things when I get home. It's been pouring here the last couple days so I'm thinking/hoping something got wet somewhere. I did notice this morning that there is fuel (can smell it when I pump the throttle), the pump kicks on as normal. She's been running like a top with no issues until this. To me it doesn't seem like the crank sensor, but IDK.. Anyone have any thoughts or have gone through this? It's a 95 4.0...
