I absolutely hate the feeling of riding my bike and the getting in my zj after. Makes me hate it.. No throttle response, no pick up. But hey, that's why I bought a bike to feed that hunger for adrenaline. Not the zj.

OT: When you change the oil and develop a new leak. When you have to replace front u-joints when you do your brakes. When you go through three transmissions without ever leaving the shop and your mechanic is tired of seeing it.

When your knuckles look like raw hamburger, half your Saturday is gone, your voice is sore from screaming four letter obscenities, but your new shocks are in without removing any brake lines.

Or even more impressive is building a car that is just as fast as 1000cc bikes. I love the look on guys faces of street bikes when my stock appearing 92 Firebird hangs with 1000cc street bikes from a stop light to well over 100mph. I love getting thumbs up from those guys.

I changed the O2 sensors on my girls wrangler. Having never done it before and reading that it's best to slightly warm the engine to loosen the threads. I burned my hands more timed then I care to count. Have cuts from little plastic clips while trying to remove the sensors and install the new ones.

You guys are doing the front shocks wrong... You need a ratcheting wrench or one of those extreme access socket sets. I have the Kobalt one and my it works wonders for the front shocks. Using the right tool makes jobs so much easier.

I used an air powered impact gun with impact socket, and extension, and a swivel joint piece. Worked quite nicely leaving the lines in tact.

I just replaced them tonight, brakes and rotors remained in place. You did it wrong or need more patience with the front drivers side.

When someone sees your jeep and they say I didn't think it was that new. And they are surprised when you say it's a 96

When you pass a cop on the side of a highway, and you're more worried about inspection ticket than being pulled over for speeding lol
