the axle is in, been running around town and so far so good, my alignment was a 1/2 inch off from my last trip out... got everything dialed in and things feel good. when i had everything off I saw my rotors looked like crap and one of my calipers has a broken boot on the slider thingy... sooo time for a brake job. gonna rebuild the caliper add power slot rotors with hawk performance pads asap

Suspension Testing. multiple views of the same section of dirt. Having this little cam really helps dialing things in. Now with this footage, I need to secure some wires, adjust my bumpstops. I measured things out correctly when i installed them but when things fully compress im still hitting shock ends. I have some air bumps i need to burn in, but in the mean time i gotta get some bigger spacers in. Also my limit straps may be a little too long. when i droop things out in the driveway things get tight but in the vid its hard to tell, I may just try some smaller straps and see how it goes. Ive had zero failures or bad contact with suspension so far but things can always get better. if you see something out of the ordinary please post up.
40 to 50mph, shocks turned all the way up, and 15 psi in the tires

Cool videos. Those were from Saturday right? Thanks again for leading us around yesterday we had a good time. That was a fun area!

I think I know what the popping I have is now. I was making a right u turn and hit a dip and it popped bad. I checked it out and at full lock to the right the end link on the antirock is just above the drag link bushing. There's rub marks on both at that spot. Im guess once compressed and turned they hit which makes the pop. Doesn't look like it's hurting anything and we'll see what happens after the currie setup.

You know I'm always up for anything! I'll try to keep up in the fast sections but you fly haha.

I think I'm gonna try to jerry rig a camera under my jeep (lots of duct tape) and see if that's for sure what is making the popping.

ive been on a mission to reduce the load on my alternator for a while. in the past at night, with the Efan, headlights, IPF lights, rock lights, radios.... etc etc. my alternator would bog down and id have to keep my RPMs up to keep the charge. Id say this mostly has to do with my efan and its draw.

So i did the HID on the headlights, I have the kit in the mail to HID the IPF 960s, Ive LED the tail lights and side marker/turn signals. I went from 3 55w rock lights to all LED.

heres a pic of the of the new rock lights, Ill get a night picture asap.
