Did you do 3" all the way back?

That filter might make a big difference . . . the one on their was used and it wasn't very clean.

only did a 3" midsection going to have the rest done in 3" soon.

the filter is bad i did give it a cleaning a couple days ago at my buddies house since he has the k&n filter cleaning kit and it helped a little

Didn't tach it up on the launch since didn't want to chance breaking anything and I also had a kid in the passenger seat I am hopefully going this Wednesday night to see if I can get into the 14s
Timing cover gasket. Sweet. I was right My 97 5.2 did that

got the 15.1 with a friend in the passenger seat and did not launch it. i am most likely going again this coming week if i get a chance to powerfoam my niner and install the new amsoil filter and kolak ignition upgrade and 14s should be very easily reached. i am aiming to get the jeep to run a 13.something with some more mods at which point i will need a helmet to race it

Youll need to swap the whole unit bearing. Its not a hard job. Just make sure you hit those bolts with kroil or PB blaster a few days in advance.

It'll come right out. I had the shafts out in January or February to do the ball joints and I anti-seized where the shaft sits in the knuckle.

thanks. the cops around where i live have never said anything to me about them. i also have two extra sets of tail lights in my garage if i ever get in trouble for them. i have done several sets for friends and family and none of them have any trouble with cops.

Installed the kolak ignition and amsoil filter the other day along with both front wheel bearings.

Received my bilstein shocks and kor radiator support the other day. Still waiting to receive the dring shackles for the support since kor forgot to put them in the box

Also paid for my group buy order from iro. Ordered the iro zj sliders along with the tcase belly skid along with front and rear coil spring isolators

need to start stripping the suspension off my 97 soon so I can install it on the niner

OMG KROIL! Where did you hear of that product at?

I only ask b/c my grandpa has a 1 gallon jug of it from back in the day that he gave me. It's probably 50 years old or so. Do they still make it?

Did the wheel bearings give you any trouble?
