Any rust you have, sand down to metal first, otherwise it locks the rust in and will hurt you later on.



You can see where I missed some of the mud, and where it needs another coat. Oh well, better than nothing I suppose.

I think they have a pretty darn good warranty on them. You might email Speed Bleeder if that's where you bought them.

I thought about getting the Dorman ones, but decided to go name-brand.

@ Speedbucket - clear tube and a mason jar won't keep the air out when you're doing a brake bleed solo...unless you have REALLY long legs. Are you a basketball player?

I have a question. I have a set of front upper adjustable ca's and a set of lower adjustable ca's coming in my direction soon, since I am aiming for 4.5" of lift in the near future, and I was planning on putting the uppers in the front (obviously) and the lowers in the rear. Now, I have heard the idea of putting the stock rear lca's in the front, since they are longer. Since I will have front upper adjustable arms, I will have a way to adjust my pinion angle in the front, and also in the rear since I will have adjustable lca's. So I guess my question is, with this setup, am I safe with running with stock rear lca's in the front? Just want to know if I am thinking this through correctly.

I would actually recommend sticking with replacing the front arms. In my experience, the rear has been very forgiving when it came to geometry. I've always had to do more tweaking in front in order to get the steering and high speed vibes under control.

Get the front axle location and angles under control, and you'll be much happier....in my personal opinion.

Not as much potential for death wobble in the rear due to incorrect caster as well

Today I sat and made a short list:

- order sheet steel $277.00
- order CAD plans for front and rear bumpers
- get winch
- order ARB air locker

-save for larger tires...the 31's are pathetic next to others

Get back out on the trails!!
