[QUOTE=hotrod_hooligan;9251193]The socket set is my buddies, it's Husky brand.

Not exactally sure what bent the UCA bracket, but since I've also bent the stock driver side UCA about a year and a half ago, I'm starting to wonder if the problem may be related to the 4 link design, and why a lot of people switch to 3 links, the binding that can happen with a 4 link w/pan hard bar in the uppers. Though I haven't researched enough into the 4 link w/pan hard VS. 3 link w/pan hard, to explain it.



Well if you haven't been jumping it I would say that the amount of lift you have on the stock arms is whats doing it. Closer the angle of the arms gets to 45 degrees, the more vertical stress you put on them. Pass 45 degrees and your control arms will be absorbing a lot of impact from the road!

Drove to Sears to see if my Grandpa's mower needs a new air filter (doesn't), drove to dealership to find out what originally came transfer case wise in my Jeep (has 242 bezel, but 231 came with it from Factory and 231 in it). Dealership also had a 2010 JK Wrangler Islander there. Looks good, but not 34k good.

Also, stopped to look at a travel trailer I seen. It is basically a pop up camper, but it is double the length of one. And where the camper part stops, there is trailer space. The one I am dreaming about weighs about 1300 pounds. An XJ should pull that fine right? I just wish I had the 7500 they wanted for it.

I tow a 22 foot bayliner with a 5.0 on a dual axle trailer fairly often. XJ can do it all

Not really worried too much about my control arm angles right now, as I should be swapping some RE control arm drop brackets soon, but at 4.5" of lift they are no where near 45*. I would have liked to put the drop brackets in the same time as the front axle, but my buddies still waiting for his RC long arms to show up, and I couldn't wait any longer on the new axle. As soon as the long arms show up, and we can get them in his Jeep, the drop brackets can go in mine.

And depending on how projects go this summer, I should start building my own long arms by early Fall at the latest.

I'm ashamed to say that yes they were, I normally set them on the LCA's when ever I have to remove them, but with the axle pulled... I should probably find some wire coat hangers to use, but I never have any.
