took a small flat bladed screwdriver and pryed them out, after they got a little ways out i grabbed onto them with some needle nose pliers and ripped them out the rest of the way.

What's your current lift setup?

Fedex came and delivered my rubi express 5.5" coils today! I ordered them from a website called knowwhere2jeep.com.. They are selling stuff at dealer cost, i got the coils for $87, it was $101 shipped to my door. I think i am going to pull an all nighter and get trackbar, steel braided brakelines, control arms, and coils in tonight and raise my shackle up until i can afford new leafs. I'll get some pics as i go

Yeah i've been busy and i was goin through a stupid stage considering selling or trading the xj for a k5 or a truck... Glad thats over haha, I was out till 5 this morning doing rear brakes, raising rear another inch, LCA's, Coils, trackbar, and brakelines. The hardline that comes from the master cylinder that attaches to the new steel braided brake line is pretty rotted though so those are cracking, and the trackbar bolts are being a PITA. The bottom bolts stuck in the bushing and the tops not coming, so i'm trying to pull where it mounts on the unibody loose but one bolt i have to cut off And i think the coils they sent me are the 7.5" lift coils because their probably a good 8" longer and 5 times stiffer than the 2" coils i had lol

Spartan lockers, for the front are under 300 brand new, I've heard nothing but good from them, as long as you stay under 35" tires.

I plan on running 35's, is it the locker or just the axle that's the weak point when getting to 35's? I know thats the limit of the stock dana 30, I plan on getting 4.56 gears before the locker. Thanks and it looks like i got about 6-6.5" out of my coils, will post pics later when i get to work
