Looking awesome, Chris. Can't wait to get on the trail BEHIND you. (that way you can pull me through the hard stuff).

The drivers knuckle and steering wheel are both at straight ahead.

make sure the axle is level, and then use an angle finder to measure the tilt of the inner C. make sure both sides are the same.

from this picture it looks like you either killed your balljoints, or bent the inner C and/or housing.

I'm not sure if a WJ 30 housing is different than an XJ hp30.. IE bracketry, but if it isn't just get on at a JY and swap your knuckles over.

Welcome, this is pretty much the general chat and BS area. The first on-road vehicle I ever owed was a 1954 CJ3, gotta love the old iron.

So what's the plan? Dana 60s, hemi? ...

I got my Nalin speaker adapters in today and I'm ready to install the new speakers. I've got the Polk Audio DB 521 fronts and DB 651 rears. Do you think I should re wire with a 12 guage wire or will the factory stuff be fine? Also, does anybody want to help me install these? It's quite possible I'll burn the Jeep to the ground if I do this myself.

My 1964 FJ40 had the SM465. That thing is bullet proof, weighs almost a ton and takes a good second to shift between gears if your proficient. Also very easy to rebuild.

Currently looking for:
-Leaf Springs that you want to get rid of.
