Just a little update for my future plans.

The next purchase I believe will be some brakes from Blaine. More and more I'm starting to hate mine.
Then crown sliders.
Then it's time to save. I think what I'll do is save up enough (or buy piece by piece) for a 44 swap and rear MC arms so I can just take off the stock arms once.

I'm going with Centric 120 series rotors as well... my pads are fine. I had some type of shimmy in the steering. It was cured after taking apart the rear ds and repacking all the ujoints with grease. Might be hard to isolate the problem when driving with just the front ds due to all the torque steer.

At least with disconnecting the rear shaft, if I still get that hop from the start I know I can eliminate it.

These brakes are still the best mod I've done to date. I'd go ahead and take a look at your rear drums too, while you are at it.

Just got under the jeep to see if I could notice anything and I can rotate my tie rod a good bit with my hand. I'm guessing I shouldn't be able to.

Centric rotors and black magic pads. I also went with the centric drum brake kit and replaced all the cables, springs and brake shoes.

Its supposed to rotate somewhat. But no side to side or up and down play.

Looking at TRE's. Has anyone ever heard of "Pronto/Federal Mogul"? It's about half the price of the Moog. But I don't want to buy ****...

Federal Mogul makes Moog. I just bought the house brand when I needed a new TRE last December when I was short on cash, held up far so fine.

People are finding Moog isn't what it used to be. Any Spicer brand stuff near you?
