ok.. So IRO has the worse shipping ever.

Love there products and customer service but there **** takes forever to ship out.
Order my Rear Trac Bar a week ago.. Hasn't shipped out yet, plus I have to wait a week for it to show up after they ship it. AGH!

Might cancel my order.. Since I am going clayton long arms in a few months, I might just buy there trac bars.

Ahh back on the road. Drives nice. Most of the front end has been rebuilt. I so regret buying this HP30. But all is well now.

Also since I cant drive over 45 due to death wobble, I am getting amazing gas mileage. I have been getting almost 14mpg, as to when I was stock, I use to get 9. YAY ME.

Here are some pictures. I am getting 35's soon, 5.5 inch lift, and Clayton long arms.

EDIT: And yes, I know I need to make my rear control arms longer. Forgot to adj them when I got the trac bar on.

Went to a shop to get my alignment done today... dude at the shop said.. " sorry we don't do lifted vehciles.. only custom offroad shops can do those.." I laughed my *** off.
Asked my friend and he will do it at his shop. Hopefully this fixes my death wobble.

Also still have a few clunking noises.. on in the front ddrivers side.. other in the rear. Going to check all my bolts and triple check all is tight.

Also saving up for clayton front long arm kit.

Filled my Tank..

Ordered some jeep parts.

Found a clicking noise in my front end, also my tie rod is hitting my spring bucket on full turns. Friend thinks it is my drag link, but I don't know. It only does it on turns.

Here is a video. Not the best but it gets the point across.
