Haven't had time or interest in updating this. Jeep is a pain in the ***, and she and I are not really on speaking terms.
I took it to get inspected at the same place as usual and he rejected it. Told me it was too lifted (same height as last year... so the TNTs perceived lift screwed me), tires were too big (oops), too loud (no muffler... my bad), my ball joints are shot (only a year old...), and the e-brake didn't work (no ****! 8.8 cable swap sucks). SO she's been sitting in the driveway while I drive the Audi to work every day. Not ideal, but it's just really frustrating. I don't want to spend money on it anymore, at least for a while. The ball joints will probably be replaced with the Spicer set, since I've heard good things and there's a guy on eBay that sells a set (4 total) for $110. Also looked into XrS or something ball joints, but they're just under $200 for the set.
Also, the rear frame upper control arm mounts need to be cut off and have new ones put on. When the track bar broke the rubber bushing in the RC arms ripped the welds from the frame on the mounts and destroyed them. Cost for the brackets alone is $140, and I'm not doing the welding myself as I don't have the trust in my welding abilities to do suspension stuff. Not when my life depends on it. So that will probably have to go to one of the local 4WD shops to be done.
Oh, and I did the annual oil change.
