Axle or body side on the track bar bolt? To take off the axle side, use a ratchet strap or have someone slightly turn the steering wheel one way or the other to relieve the pressure. Do the same to reinstall it.

picked up some xj wheels for el-cheapo. took the rear wiper off. soaked it in pb blaster so it moved again cleaned it up, painted the arm and re-installed, now it actually touches the glass!
i also learned that my cruise control works and the 4wd functions properly in all settings. overall a good day!

on topic: threw some chairs on the top and used the 94 as my golf cart while I got trashed at the beach this weekend, put it in 4lo and just walked it



to a 04Wj I helped a guy replace a steering box in the parking lot not as easy as the Zj but the V8 has some power I got to drive it
