things are going downhill on my XJ right about now; and right at the wrong time too, because I dont have any money to fix it. I can feel the other wheel bearing hub scraping now (the side I didnt replace), now the u-joints are going "woop woop woop woop woop" alot and its getting louder, there are driveline vibes, the cat sounds like something is loose inside it at idle now, and something on the serpentine belt is rattling when I tap on the gas (sounds like the A.C which has had a bad clutch for 3 years). Damm dammm dammm not now Jeep not now!

I'm going to do rear diff fluid and transcase fluid this weekend and I'll check the front diff fluid (it was done right before I bought my jeep)

This is also going to severely put off my subwoofer install, I just got two Infinity 10's in a sealed enclosure for $50, and a Rockford Fosgate amp kit out of a junkyard XJ for $10. Its all hooked up but I'm missing an amp. Driveability comes before sound unfortunately.

that first pic is of the stock shackle at full droop, my down travel is limited right now because I have 2" lift shocks (brackets added around 1.5")

Well I checked the vac by takeing my bumper off, and removeing the booster ( I think thats what it is the ball thing in the bumper) It seemed to have presuare when I removed it. I tried the trick you posted, but my pedal did the same thing. The hissing only happens when you depress the pedal. This is really getting to me. I'm sorry for asking more, but I knida need to stop lol.

On the plus side going after the booster I took my end caps,bottom wind thingy off, so now cutting the bumper wont be to hard.

Waxed the outside glass. It got all dirty again after I JUST waxed it. Might have to clean that off tomorrow. Hopefully the wax will help keep some of the crap from sticking so much.

Will they fit a XJ off a ZJ with little to no mods? Because theres a ZJ with one at my local JY that i havent pulled cause i didnt think it would fit.

Tried to change my rear bump stops, but I couldn't get a good bite on them and didn't want to break the bolts.
