mtnmarc - Awesome!

Today I took apart my rear shocks/sway links and put in the proper bushing sleeves and bolts. No more squeaking! I also disconnected my front sway bar to see how it handles and I installed my Rancho steering stabilizer, no more shaking when I brake!

ill let you know when it comes a little closer to the swap time. its in good condition. wheel bearings good. you might want to swap in your upper bj at the a arm. idk how good mine is.

its got an awesome green diff cover too

and the shaking from braking is probably from warped rotors. happens all the time on wjs. you could probably resurface them if the runout is still within spec.
