Well it looks like I probably won't get my headers and radiator next month. Had to take the wife's truck to the Ford stealership and got screwed out of $500 to replace a little sensor that probably took 10 mins to change. I know theres diagnostic time included but come on, thats robbery. Here's a pic of the culprit.

Ha, probably wouldnt make it then. When I had my Ford dually 6.0 powerjoke a few years ago, I pulled the old YJ to jeep beach with it. It broke down on the way home and I had to leave it in Daytona. After a 4 hour trip to pick it up a few days later it had a for sale sign in it. Had nothin but trouble with it. Her's has the 7.3 in it and has been a good truck, however I'll stick to my Chevy.

Finally got done cutting off all the brackets. Put the hubs back on and 4 studs back in to put tires on it.



Going to use these tires and wheels as my temps until its time for the big ones. They are 305/70-16 so they are the same size as the front.

Found some stock YJ springs today. Hopefully I can get them Fri and have the axle under the Jeep this weekend.

Much easier to move around now!

Yeah, they are practically brand new. Had them on my dually and took them off when I sold it. Put the other 4 on the YJ when I sold it to keep the 35's.

Picked up some new to me YJ springs today and got the rear axle under the Jeep. Got to make a few adjustments on Sat and then burn in the new perches.

Why? I was thinking they should face towards the rear. I know my on my old YJ they pointed opposite directions. Ideas on how to fix it...

Lol nevermind, I just noticed that the spring isn't under load.


Maybe it's a CJ/YJ thing, but on XJs we want it to be about 45* and point to the back.
good angle

at droop:

compressed:


Moving the spring mount back a little, would fix it I think. IKD, if our shackle angle is all jacked up on XJ's we usually have to do shackle relocation brackets or something.
