Ordered some Bent LCA's that use stock bushings. Worked on the jeep. Both leaf pack pins sheered off and were beat to hell. My shims almost came out. Fixed that and now she sits .5" taller in the rear.

Well one of my favorite wheeling spots was shut down...kinda.. Anyways the arms are in and im debating on cutting the flex joint off of my Rubi express super flex arms and putting them on the "new" LCA's.

On a side note the jeep got 18.2 mpg the other day

Changed the U-joints in my drive shaft. On each one only 2 of the caps were destroyed. Powdered bearings and the knobs were halfed out... It was bad. Took off the rear tire carrier. Worked on the rear shocks. Put a turndown on the glass pack. Sounds mean.
