Ok. The new UC springs went in, 2.5" spacers, JKS adjustable track bar, new Stillen discs, new pads up front, (wrong rear pads sent), new MX-6 shocks. No bushings sent with extended rear sway bar links, but they are on their way with the rear pads. Had alignment done even tho it drove fine. Pics soon, still in camera. I think I want to put the oem spacers back in up front, but will have to order unless someone has some to sell/give. I misplaced them when I removed them on the first lift. Didn't have time to do the plugs or the gas skid. Maybe next weekend.

Try mounting your CB in your arm rest, that's where my siren control box is.

I ordered my MT/Rs today...

installed my jks discos without the proper tools, mainly a screw driver to hold the attachments for the pin straight. i had to ghetto rig something. took too long, much longer then what? a half hour.

changed my oil and air filter. changed center stop light bulb.

measured tires to lca axle mount to check if my front axle is centered. off to right by an inch. looked at clock and thought that installing the jks adj track bar would take too long, especially without someone to turn the steering wheel or ratchet strap to center the axle. bah.

all this for stupid white mountains in the eastern sierras of california.

JKS discos shouldn't clunk at all. When's the last time you greased them?

Could be. You should keep going until there's a little ooze by the bushings.

I didn't so anything TO my ZJ today, but I did drag a buddy's Cavalier to work WITH it. He smoked his clutch on his way in so we went to get it at lunch. I can't believe he thought I was gonna charge him for it...

Wheeled it! Woohoo! Aside from the new power steering pump getting HOT and whiny, I had a great time. Great flexy pose will be hitting the lifted pics thread real soon.

I actually was looking at the date from the last time I ran this trail...a year ago, nearly to the day. Big change going from stock to 3.5" and armor

Replaced the air filter and Serpantine belt with something better (freaking $60 belt)...nothing wrong with the old belt, no cracks or anything...just made of softer material or something and was stretched to the maximum w/ the tensioner
