Drove it, hit a huge pot hole, front axle started to violently shake again. Guess the bolts I used to replace the broken ones on the track bar mount aren't strong enough. Guess who's going to the jy tomorrow.

Millerstown has 4 in the you pull it yard and I think like 3 in the full service yard.

Tons of ZJs, WJs, and YJs though.

Bilsteins and SYE, I called IRO, waiting to hear back any minute about where my upper control arms are.

Guess what I'm doing today

Didn't get the shocks on because it started to snow and I didn't want to be laying down in cold gravel while it snowed.

IRO is sending me my uppers today, no idea what happened to the ones they had for me...

The upper shock mounts for the front shocks are gonna suck, they're relocation brackets, and even with the sleeve out of the bushing they barely fit over the head of shock.

e: Ordered the lower adjustables too.

Anyone want to buy my fixed length IRO lowers?
