I've been driving on 3 blown shocks for a couple months now, these are long overdue

Alright, new shocks are in, along with relocation brackets in the rear

Now the exhaust is rubbing on the shock body, I'm probably just going to chop it, not too sure yet.

I could, but the exhaust already hugs the gas tank pretty tight, I'm not sure it would do too much.

Hmmm. I know mine is tight, but doesn't hit either the tank or shock. But mine's way different than yours.

Drove the Jeep to the airport today, and I am very happy with these shocks. No more bouncing around and it handles much nicer.

Productive day today, replaced the outer pinion bearing on the front axle finally. Had Youreverydayxj help me out. We drank beer and smoked a mean brisket. While I had the front axle torn apart and shafts removed, we replaced the front brakes and both axle shaft u joints.

Been dealing with a slight death wobble for awhile now. I had the tires rotated and balanced today, it helped but not completely. I figured that the steering damper was shot since it was still OEM and I am on 35's. So I replaced that today, just a stock Gabrial from work. Much beefier than the old one, Now I need to take it for a spin here shortly to see if that fixed it.
The old one with the new one

Check your ball joints and wheel bearings! Fixed DW on 4 different Jeeps that way.
