Here's the other side of the Currie bushing tower cleaned and ready to be welded.
I disconnected my battery cables ready for welding, and Rocko disconnected the computer plugs for extra insurance to hopefully not have any issues afterwards.
The Currie bushing tower held in place with a medium sized C-clamp ready to be welded into place.
And here it is all welded up!
And with the control arm reinstalled, and shot with a quick coat or rustoleum rust preventative black paint.
The install took a little while because the welder wasn't working correctly, and we wanted to make sure that the bushing inside the Johnny Joint didn't melt due to heat from being welded, so Rocko welded a little bit, then we let it cool for 15 minutes or so, then welded a bit more, etc etc... at the end of it all the Johnny Joint was still nice and tight, and everything seems to be in good working order.
So now all I have left is the on bushing on the top of the dif to replace, and all 8 of my forwards bushings will be Currie. I can already swear that I'm a convert, even though I have one more bushing to install, my Jeep handles and steers way more responsive and precise than it did before!
