haha...yeah definitely would have had I caught someone in the act. on a side note, as I was standing there letting the compressor air it back up, this guy walks up and looks at me funny, then stares at the big yellow air hose I have attached to the tire, then looks at the compressor with a weird look on his face followed by a very confused "you need a jump?" i guess he didnt notice my wheel sitting on the ground?

at least he was trying to be helpful

so my new KOR bushings were waiting form me when I got home. Unfortunately, my son has apparently given me pink eye so the install will have to wait till tomorrow. gotta take us both to the doctor.

the bushings in this kit are SOLID, compared to the JKS ones its like they are made of steel haha. the new 9/16 bolt and bolt sleeve are massive as well. You can see that the sleeve is nearly a 1/4 thick. I dont think my track bar will be going anywhere after I get this put on....heres some quick pics

I got a set of those bushings and they really helped my situation out. If I were you since your down there, put a washer on both ends of the bracket and weld them on there so that the mounting hole in the bracket wont oval out. Alot of people have the problem so I knocked it out when I put my bushings in. Super tight now!

Just curious, are you running an exhaust on your jeep? It sounds pretty mild but ****ing awesome when you romp it. I have the 50 series and its a bit loud lol

yeah, i know i need the weld some washers on but i dont have access to a welder right now so that part will have to wait but def a good idea. and my exhaust is a totally one off custom turn down pipe after the cat

all i did was cut the muffler off to clear my clayton 4-link but liked how it sounded so much i never put my flowmaster on best 5 bucks i ever spent

got the new bushings in. I gotta say I suggest anybody with any sort of wobble get a hold of these. They made an immediate difference. The steering is 10 times more solid. The annoying shimmy ive had in my steering wheel is completely gone. All around it was def worth the price. You can see in the pics how easy it is to compress the JKS bushings in my hand. I couldnt even budge the KOR bushings........over all Im very happy
