FOA, 2.5" smooth body remote resivores.
drove the jeep up to chico and back.
the good parts.... the jeep made it, there and back, and i didnt die.... so that was good... the brakes are much better, and i love the adjustability of the proportioning valve.
and on the few hills from here to there i realy pushed her, and she pulls up hills like a beast.
as for the bad, everything else.... i am prety sure i need to ballence the wheels/tires, the beads i put in there arnt enough.
the driver side coil spring rubs and clanks on the axle side track bar bracket.
the exhaust needs another hanger near the back, as right now it rests on the rear crossmember, and rattles.
its good some good bump steer, so i either need to get off my *** and install the hydro assist, or throw on a steering stabilizer, there is allot of feed back through the wheel.... but, no death wobble, so that is good.
also, last but not least, gas millage.... TERRIBLE!
some some quick math, it came out to 8.5mpg... that being said, most of the drive was at 2000rpms, or mabe a tad less, my average speed was about 55mph on the freeway.
