You can easily get away with just one. Just use zip ties on the opposite side to hold the disco up and out of the way. All you want to do is make sure the sway bar stays in the highest position possible when it's disconnected.
I'm going to have to mess with it for a little bit. I plan on taking it for a little wheeling on Sunday. I'll try to get it to flex in every direction with the wheels turned in every which way. Hopefully they're good.

Just do the math

$63.00 / 18.645 gallons

$3.37/gal
Yea tanker was there idk about the myth although makes sense. And yea it was 3.35.9$ gallon (.9 BS) and was at right above 8th of a tank. V8 gas guzzling sob lol

Didn't the 95's and 96's swap a lot of parts? Like a FrankenZJ.

There are certain ones that were 50-60 but I don't think they fit the ZJ plus you have to add shipping to that lol

Best I see is 58 plus 7 shipping for a direct oe replacement for my 95 zj. They just have 2 options for either usa built or not (inlet and outlet are located different on usa built for mine)

Finally had to rebuild one of my almost alloy shafts. Went with a superior joint because it's made in the USA, and cap greasable unlike the spicer that wore out from lack of grease. Now I hope it all works out as I had to flash cool the welds to save the joint.

Working on soundproofing the hatchback today, taking a break while the adhesive dries.
You can see that the first layer for vibration has already been installed, this second part is 2 layers bonded together for killing the sound.
