I'd get a recharge can from a store, and add abit and see what it does. If it holds then fill it up and be cool. I used to do HVAC for Whitecastle, and you would be suprised how easy it is to get a hole in a ac line.... even though freon is extreamly hazardis for the evo... not that I'm a tree huger

The can should run you about 8-12 bucks. Just make sure to get the right kind.

The tires aren't 100% round, a balljoint is on the way out, and the trackbar mount needs work. I'll fix them as they break. Though I'll probably redrill the trackbar once I get another inch or two of lift. I'm REALLY happy with the handling at 2.5" though.

If the vibe just started, sounds like it's just the tires. Maybe also the adapters??? Is there a torque spec on those things? Adding tires/wheels doesn't change anything angle wise. A balance should be all you need!

Drove through a mud puddle in order to "get some mud on the tires" because my GF won't let me work on the Jeep or get dirty til Friday.

Hosed it down because it was practically green with pollen. Didn't get around to working on the carrier today, I went to a movie instead.

But at school we were sitting around doing nothing, and one guy wanted a gator bar, so we made a bad *** one.


3/4" thick steel jaws, 1" hexagonal handle 4' long. He wanted a flat pry bar on the other end so we heated it with a torch red hot and put it on an anvil, and I beat the snot out of it with a hammer and repeat. Looks damn good. Now I want one. And my arms are tired, lol.


cleaned it up with a sanding disc of course.

Sorry, iPhones don't like shiny objects!
