Well, the other sliders should be selling tomorrow so that combined with what I've got left means I should have my 44 pattern swap parts on the way soon, as well as an NTK sensor and some unit bearings and u joints for the 30. I'll keep track of the mileage and sell them off when the 44 goes in. There is another click when the wheels are turned, which tells me the u joints are going out in addition to the wheel bearings.

Ordered:
- 2x Spicer 5-760X U-joints
- NTK B1S1 O2 Sensor
- Mopar Pressurized P/S Hose
- Crown F/R 3"-4" Braided Brake Lines
- 12x Cree 3W LED Rock Lights
- GoPro Hero 2 Replacement Housing

Finally got off of my *** and pulled the Jeep to the back of the parking lot to do some testing. Was happy to discover that it was the drivers side u joint, not the unit bearing, making a racket. Saved me some cash there. Going to go ahead replace both sides next weekend. Got both joints and the sensor direct from the mfg with 2 day free shipping thanks to my Amazon Student Prime account.

While under the Jeep, I noticed that my p/s hose that I replaced about a year ago is leaking in the same spot again. Decided to go with Mopar this go round. Free standard shipping combined with the brake lines from Qtec. Needed to flush the p/s anyway so that's motivation to get it done. I also noticed the 30 has a pinion leak now, but it only has to last me until the end of summer, so I'm not touching it other than topping off the fluid.

Hmm... Thought I posted about that but I guess I forgot to here. They came in a few days ago.

Replaced the power steering pressure line and flushed the system using the return line. Had to get all the power steering fluid out and get proper ATF in. Return line had some non-reusable clamp so we used a normal hose clamp instead.

Did a late night last minute before-ride axle shaft u joint replacement. Left the hub on the stub and used the hammer method to knock the caps loose. Dry as a bone. Pressed in the new Spicer joint with a vise and reassembled everything, ready to put the gear oil in in the morning. Still want to do the other side sometime but this one was a ticking (literally) timebomb.

Installed BDS 3" coils, Bilstein 5100's, and Crown Perf brake lines in the front. Didn't have time to touch the rear. Sits with a pretty obvious rake now but that just convinces me that the 2" rear coils will be perfect. Felt good on the road but I noticed the biggest difference on the gravel driveway. Front end floated over the gravel like it was paved.
