I have found, over my 40 years in this biz that any TRE that you can move by hand is no match for the forces encountered on the car.
Yes and no. Brand new you can move along the A axis BY HAND, however you will not be able to move along the B axis...again, by hand. The movement along the A axis will be firm and somewhat difficult to achieve. Obviously if it's floppy its s***can material. When bolted into the rig with the tre set in place in the tapered hole, crown nut tight and key in place...you have a serious issue if to can move along the B axis... That guy shouldn't be moving, at all.

I'm sure if I dig around in my garage I can find some new and some blown out TRE's for show and tell

Here's an illustration that will help make sense

As can see, when set in place, there should be absolutely zero movement from the track bar in relation to the B axis...anyways, moral of the story is your track bar is most likely effed and a factory replacement should do the trick.

Dropping off my 8.8 tomorrow at a shop down in chula vista to have the brackets welded on. Looking forward to getting it swapped into the rear of the Jeep in the next week or so.

Assuming I get the axle back this week... Anybody want to have a wrenching party at my house this fri/sat? I just bought all the parts I should need for the 8.8 (minus the diff fluid). I'll have some pizza/beer for those who want to come over and do a little wrenching.

Well I would move the ol' 51 ford out of the garage when I get home, then clean up the garage a bit for room and then start working around 430-5. Need to have it done before 3am on sunday for wurk.

The 249 is worth its scrap value. You may or may not need the input shaft from it though for your 231 on the ax 15 swap. Or w/e tranny you swap in

Lights would be too expensive as others wont be spending that kind of money either.
So we were looking at the air down tools. The ARB comes in an orange pouch. The generic ORW comes in a black pouch. They both have the identical mechanism and gauge on them, but the ARB had an ARB logo on it. Both had the same length hose, but the hose on the ARB had a braided coating. The ARB one was twenty dollars more. It is the exact same air down tool!
So I bought the ORW one obviously. I'm sure ARB makes fine lockers etc... but they both have their gauges made in the same Chinese factory.

I want to get a good first aid kit for her too, but a good one, not too big, not filled with glow sticks and stupid crap like the ORW one.
Any idea where? Walgreens maybe? We don't have any truck stops around here.
I've been using one of those ORW deflaters for almost 6 years with no issues. I'd buy one again in a heart beat.

Michelle got me a "Hunter" first aid kit from Cabela's a few years back. It fits right between the seat and tub on the drivers side. I added a quality multi-tool and a few other items I like to have but it was pretty complete. Just be sure she knows that the meds have an expiration date and have to be replaced from time to time.

Looks like it's been renamed to appease the PC crowd.

Just wanted to say hello to fellow San Diegan Jeepers. I just recently got my second Jeep, first in Cali, and wanted to get to know as many people as possible. I'll help with mechanical fixes, upgrades or anything.

PM me or if things are more pertinent, my name is Tyler and I can share contact info.

Unfortunately, it's not set up at all. Its 100% bone stock. I just bought it 2 months ago with 74,000 miles on it. So I may not be able to wheel with everyone for a little while but the slate is clean and the future is bright. I have many plans for her as you may suspect.

Who was I talking to the other day about setting toe in?

This is the easiest way I know.
