Found a steal on 3/4 ton Chevy axles (10 bolt front, 14FF rear) complete with rims and 36" tires.

Now I'm searching for a D300 to setup for the passenger side drop and pricing out the cost of exhaust reroute.

Got an alianment on the jeep, they said my camber was out of spec. and something about ajustable ball joints. Any buddy ever run across this before and should i be worried.

unless your axle is bent they are full of it.

For caster I guess check to see where the axle is sitting, make sure its not sitting too far forward, basically you just want the the coil perches to be level. i'm not sure if you got adjustable CA's or just the regular ones, if you got the regular ones theres nothing you could do. And if you dont have deathwobble, then I wouldnt mess with it in that case either.

The ball joints will wear out faster because of the angles they are at now from the lift, but your fine, Most people don't bother messing with them until after 6"+

But you should be fine

I bought some spark plugs. Now I just gotta take the 20 min to change them. Not sure if I feel like standing outside for 20 min doing that in about 5 deg. weather though.

Motor mounts came in today - lucky me, our "heat wave" ends on Friday and the first opportunity I have to do the swap is Saturday

Oh well...I've done a timing chain cover in 100* heat, I can do motor mounts in low 30s

I really hate it when its that hot, but honestly, I'd rather work on a car in 100 + than below freezing. Your fingers just lock up after a hr or so, and when you pick up a metal wrench or anything if your not wearing gloves it just drains the heat right out of ya.

You ain't kidding Nick - never said I was looking forward to it

Thankfully, there's only 3-ish bolts per side.

Yeah, I'm glad plugs on the 4.0 are only about a 20 min ordeal.
