Wait so are those superlift springs? looks like it. Superlift will send you new springs for free if they bend!

I would still look into replacing those, they are now really weak, it won't take much at all to bend them again...

Check out Carlos14 on here and his build thread. He bent his Supelift springs and he called them and they mailed him new ones. It's in his build "Teenager with a dream" i believe.

But if you don't mind me asking, how'd they get that bad?

Scratch that.. I see where you caught air, AND drug it through rocks. Fair enough haha.

Made progress today,i would have finished it today butI'm waiting on my trans mount to get in. it ripped right in half when i hit the rut.

Out!!!


One half of the mount, i checked the motor mounts and they are still good.



Then i realized the tj trans was set up for a external slave so i had to switch everything over. I will do the external mod when i have the extra time and money.

I had to swap the center section and bell housing.




Oh! And i found this yummy stuff in the old trans. Not sure how it got so much water in there.



New trans all put together and i put her in.
