It fits fine. Got it pretty tuned. 9 threads on the jam nut was right about on the money. Shoot its better then what it was center wise.

Sadly...... there is still a tiny bit of play on the JKS poly bushings when torqued to 80 foot pounds. From the looks, much much less then the stock track bar had play wise. Hitting some bumps it I feel it in the steering wheel and a little shaky but better. Its all better.

I'm going to contact JKS about the poly bushings and see what they say.

I also did a full lock break test. Holy crap. My friend who was in the Jeep with me, who is a big car person too. This is what he said, "holy f****** sh** man I was not expecting that at all!" "That was ridiculous!"

I'm not sure what I am going to do as of now other then contacting JKS.

Rephrase. Slamming the brakes as hard as I can test and see what happens. Like a panic stop. Was able to lock the tires up on rough asphalt. I'm impressed so far. They are still breaking in too.

Oh haha. Gotcha. Im interested to see what jks says about the bushings. Mine are not moving a good bit, but just enough to be visible. The play in the bushings and the steering gear box is whats giving me vibrations in the steering wheel I think the only solution is the kor bushings, and from what I heard, they are worth it.

I can't get my brakes to lock ever, iv tried, maybe your abs isn't 100%? And there will always be some play with the bushings, there alittle soft to absorb the energy created when you hit bumps and all.

Chris just installed the KOR bushings into his JKS and will give them a workout tomorrow. He will probably post back here and let us know too.

To my knowledge the brakes are supposed to lock up and kick on ABS to prevent lock up.

I thought they were supposed to be TIGHT.

Tight to a certain extent, get someone to turn the wheel and take a video of the play and post it!

Yup.

Next is figuring out why I have some slight vibes (still with the new track bar) in the jeep. Not sure if tires, or track bar or what. Possibly front d.s.?

What's the condition of your u joints? Also maybe your tries need to be re balanced? There's so many possibilities but you've covered a lot with replacing the tre's so that helps

U joint looks good on the axle and the C.V. joint is okay. Hasn't blow up yet. Could be tire out of balance, but is also started after the lift...
