OK OK I'll air down when you guys do next time. Last time up that trail I didn't air down at all and did Holcomb Creek right after it with very little problem.
I noticed last night I have a little chunk of tire missing on my sidewall of my right front tire. Look's like it's going to become a spare.
Haha whatever. I can't think of what else I could drink when listening to country. Seriously though, all things considered, your rig did really well....except from having your cat go out on ya! :-P

Just got a BaoFeng UV-5R+ in camo of course. Not a bad 2 way radio for the price... Any cool channels to monitor?

This afternoon removed the driver side brake drum, then took the 8 retainer bolts off that hold in the 14B FF axle shaft & slid it out. That gave me access to the snap ring and spindle nut, so those came off next. Grabbed the hub & slid it off the spindle, then took the 4 bolts off the back of the axle tube flange so that I could remove the drum brake backing plate. I removed the hydraulic line as well.

Boom! Easy stuff.



I cleaned the spindle and started to assemble the disc brake caliper bracket & called it a day.

I need to press out 6 more of the 8 lugs from the hub so that I can reseat them behind the rotor disc.

Alright guys, I posted in the MJ tech section but that place is dead. The truck has a horrible front end shake. I've experienced this once before in my friends XJ when he lifted it. And now it's happening in our Comanche. No lift whatsoever.

My mom DD's it and it happened yesterday and now today too. She describes it as the entire front of the truck shakes and you need to stop to get the shaking to stop.

Last night I tightened every part I had to undo to get the oil pan off. That includes both upper shock bolts and sway bar links, the lower track bar mount and the UCA's on the axle, as well as the steering stabilizer and its respective stud. I realize now that it probably wasn't all necessary but you gotta learn somehow. The only thing that I didn't put back on was the stone shield.

After I tightened it all I took it for a five mile test drive that included quick acceleration, aggressive braking and overall road speed. Nothing shook and it drove like it always has.

Tonight I had someone turn the wheel for me while I looked at the steering components. Everything looks fine. The ends have a bit of roll in them, like stuck TRE's i'd assume (know very little about steering) but they are still tight and don't have any other play in them. When the wheels go from side to side the CA's go side to side as well, I can't tell you how much but it doesn't seem like a whole lot. I'd bet the bushing are original so I attributed the small amount of play to that. Could old worn bushings be the cause of the horrid shake? I'm all out of ideas here and my knowledge of coil suspension systems is limited really to what each piece is called. Any help would be great.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.
