Got it jack up and leveled back at ride height height without the tires and wheels. Drained the fluid and removed the brake calipers because I forgot I needed someone to hold the freaking bake while i undo the wheel spacers.... So that will be tomorrow.

Sitting in the temporary garage. With the tires on and on its weight, they were splaid out a little.



With the axle housing sitting level on jack and frame stands.

The passanger C is @ 90* in the picture



And so is the driver. And the outer lip of the wheel spacer was at 90/0* also.



Spoke to GB who took a measurement across the top of the ball joint and will post it tonight/tomorrow. I'll check mine against his tomorrow. Thanks again buddy, the beers I owe you are adding up....

Cancel the order and just rent one from autozone. Gt all your money back when you return it, and comes with tons of adapters depending on which store you go to.

Also, you could just return the amazon one after you use it. Even cheaper. Amazon returns are easy.

I used the one from advanced auto to get the ball joints out of the hpd30 I'm building. The AutoZone near me had a 8 piece set which wasn't doing the job, the set from advanced was a 23 piece set and got them out no problem. I would just go to one if those places instead of buying since you get all your money back and you don't have to wait for it to get shipped.

I seriously thought about getting you to order it because I didn't want to get next weeks sometime... Then I noticed 2nd day shipping for free. What Amazon club do you belong to again?

I went to auto zone last night and event their $160 rental kit with 100+ parts does not include these adapters. Also rented a pickle fork for the steering. Did you change your ball joints out when you did the HP30 swap?

Haha. Or sell it on ebay or rent it out to other jeepers or dodge people. I actually use amazon for a lot of stuff Chris, just rarely for Jeep junk.

Purchased already, but I am not worried to much.

Yup, changed the ball joints using the advance tool with the numerous adapters. Not exactly sure which is the dodge adapter (supposedly angled on the bottom of the C's?) but there were angled adapters that worked.
