Hey Moose - we were just becoming buddies and you up and leave us?! Congrats on the job - I'm very happy for you - thanks for all your help - keep in touch - maybe you can come down and do the Rubicon with us sometime...it'll probably be closer to you than us...

Oh yeah, once you get everything un-attached, use a floor jack on one side and jack that side of the axle as high as it will go without lifting the front end off the jackstand. Then drop the spring off the opposite side. On a stock lift the spring usually falls ouy about this point

I'm torn between working on the jeep and playing with my new phone.

After multiple driveshafts and other repairs since my debacle on Pumpkin Eater during Hi-Desert Roundup, my TJ is finally driveable again. After breaking the rear driveshaft yoke/u-joint on the trail (among a bunch of other crap breaking in one afternoon) and making one good DS out of two plus welding on the trail to get home, I replaced the rear driveshaft's yoke & u-joint. Then I installed a brand-new DS from Tom Wood so I could use the older DS as a spare but it turns out the new DS had a bad centering joint that didn't show up for 50 miles. So it started squealing/squeaking (sounded like the t-case though) so Tom sent me a replacement DS last week. Then I discovered a bad u-joint in the "spare" I was driving on and all this time I thought I still had an expensive-sounding drivetrain problem. So for months of off & on work on the TJ & thinking something expensive was bad, it turned out that getting the 4th DS (Tom Wood's replacement) installed was what it took to finally get rid of the two different noises... one caused by a bad CV u-joint, the other caused by the CV's centering ball.

Three separate driveshaft problems since the end of May so I'm on my 4th rear CV DS. Sheesh... but at least it was not expensive to repair and not what I feared it was. Phew!

Dang Jerry... Sound's like a PIA, but I'm glad you got it figured out.

Hey, I was cleaning my garage today. My engine stand is in the way. If anybody need's one, they can have it for half what I paid for it. It's your's for $15, you pick it up. It's in good shape and the wheels are round, no flat spots.
And hey, while I'm at it, I have some stock YJ flares for sale for $200 pesos
I guess I should just throw those in the dumpster.

Judging by the silence, I'm thinking everyone is enjoying the picture perfect weekend.

I got tunes in my grocery getter yesterday. Going to the JY Thurs and Fri (if needed) for parts to get the AC fan to work. Gonna be strange wheeling with music and AC!
