Bringing yj back to life...

I just bought a 1995 Jeep Wrangler with 140,000 miles and it starts up great. It runs alright but let's say it feels bumpier than my previous 95 wrangler. I'm wondering how new body bushings ( hope that's what they're called) and motor mounts will effect my ride quality? Can anybody relate? Can anyone show me a link to a good video showing how to remove the header and replace it? if you have any suggestion to help make the ride a little smoother I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance and I'm not expecting it to ride like a lexus

First thing to do is look and see if the track bars are still installed, if so pull them out and junk them. Next step would be to insure your tire pressures arnt crazy high. After that take a look at your spring and shackle bushings check them for condition and check that the torque on the bolts is within spec. Over torqued bolts can impede spring and shackle movement. Body mount bushings probable wont cause issues like you describe, but badly worn motor and/or trans mounts might.

Here's a pretty nice exhaust manifold replacement walk through.

Also in the future you will probably get better results in you post in the YJ specific section for stuff like this.

better late then never...

before you toss those track bars, make sure you do not have to have them installed for your safety inspection. other wise you will be buying used ones or bugging people to let you borrow them for the inspection. i agree to remove them but make sure of the inspection requirements before tossing them in the trash
I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.
