Ive never had a problem with my blue hose ( thanks to lots of zip ties) but I'm on my second set of internal seals, im not pleased with my arb. But i wheel with a guy who's had the same arb set up for at least 10 years, same hose and all.

Wow, that sucks, then steel braided is probably best for you.

well last weeks drive to work sucked. It started last Sunday when I noticed a stick on wheel weight sitting in my driveway. If I lost one there is no telling how many more fell off and judging by the vibrations Id say I lost A LOT of them. Then, everytime I'd hit the brakes I would pull violently to the pass side. I had done the pass side caliper this past weekend and thought I had screwed something up. Then I remembered!! Im an idiot. I must have had an early production run WJ on 2002 because I still had the Teves calipers. When I put the new one on I had bought an Akebono. Well lesson learned kids. Dont miss match a brand new Akebono with a 117k mile Teves. They dont get along.

So I went and bought a new Akebono for the drivers side today as well as new rotors. While I was under there, I noticed one more reason I might have been pulling to the pass side during breaking:



I dont know when that fell out but it must have been early on during the week. SO I used what I had available until I can get a new bolt assembly from JKS



Out with the old rotors



IN with the new





Also noticed I have a leaking inner axle seal on the front axle. Guess ill have to get to that soon too. The never ending joy of JEEPS

How have the Spydertrax spacers worked for you? I have heard some horror stories with spacers but never Spydertrax and I'm hoping if I shell out for them they will work fine.

ZERO issues. I make sure to use a good bit of loctite and re-torque them every 5000 miles or so. They are always hard to get off. which tells me they are staying right where they are supposed to be.


and if I ever take the jeep ANYWHERE that touches my wheels, I always make sure to check the spacers again, I just dont trust others to tighten them back down correctly

did a quick little flex test on break. didnt have much time so I didnt disco the front. I need to try and find a good spot to test it out this weekend. Im trying to figure out if my JKS trac bar is going to contact the new IRO drop bracket when the pass side is stuffed.

As you can see , the JKS trac bar bends forward towards the front of the jeep. Im thinking that when disco'd and fully stuffed, the trac bar might actually hit the drop bracket limiting uptravel.





If so, Im probably going to torch out an arch in the bracket right where it contacts. Im not to worried about weaking it. Its 1/4'' plate. If I go that route though, ill probably end up welding the bracket on rather than just relying on the 9/16'' bolt........


weak sauce flex

Cool man, thanks.

Haha "I pull for TEAM PUP-N-SUDS!". I wonder how many people who read that actually get the reference. I wish I could find somewhere online to stream that movie!

BTW, I noticed several posts back that you were having blinker issues (I assume so, if you hit a bump and your blinker started working again). Is it an intermittent issue where the turn signals don't work but the emergency flashers do work? If so, do you know about the extremely common flasher relay issue with WJ's? Up above all the fuses under the dash, there are some relays and one of them is the flasher relay. They have a problem where some of the solder joints going to the pings eventually crack. You might not even be able to see the cracks in some cases, but they're there. You can buy a new module for 50 bucks or take yours out, pop it open, and resolder the 8 or 9 joints. There are 8 or 9 of them in a row on the circuit board, they're easy to spot. Just resolder them and don't let any solder accidentally bridge any of them (obviously) and it will almost certainly fix your issue. You can search for an actual write up on how to fix it and there's even a YouTube video.
