No problems with a bone stock rig, they can do pretty well offroad:

Welcome Taylor....

So it seems all I did all weekend was drink and eat. Going away party Friday until 4am, birthday party Saturday until 2am, then to Chris' house for a killer BBQ/Smoker beerfest and shots until I passed out on the couch. Had a wee bit of trouble getting up to take the kids to school this morning.
Chris' smoker works great. I didn't take any pics but he did. Bacon wrapped sausage, pork shoulder (pulled pork), and some kind of special spicy chicken, plus trimmings. I'm so glad he lives close to me, but he isn't helping my waist line any.

Anyway... I am itching to go wheeling again. Someplace different tho'. BetZ may be going up to Sacramento for the weekend this Friday, so its either a major drunken brawl with hookers and beer at my house, or wheeling. Need help deciding. lol

Me too!

I will be busy wrenching under my Jeep this saturday getting my 8.8 put in. Dropped it off today, and guy says it should be ready by tomorrow. So I plan on drilling tap the tubs to mount the hoses to the calipers, and the T-manifold for the hard brakes lines. Then I will primer and paint it wednesday/thursday. Install beginning early saturday morning.


Edit: Crap. Don't have the C-clips for the 8.8 axle shafts. Does anybody know (joe!) of any places local that I can buy some?

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.

I would think a local Ford dealer would have 'em or know of another local source. I have seen them for ~$4 each, which seems kinda high, but when you need them....

Do you still have the o-rings? I'm not sure how critical they are. They look like this:

I was searching through a local dealers online parts inventory and I couldn't find any. Ended up buying some online @ $4 a pop. Bought a couple extra, just in case. Don't have the o-rings either.

I thought of them AFTER I ordered them too. I think I will still take a trip down there and see. It would be nice, that way the axle swap can be done this weekend.

Anyone have a torque spec for this track bar? Or is goodntight sufficient?

Got them. 35ft on frame and 55 ft on axle according to autozone.

This thing went right in. Both bolts lined up no problem. Not sure how I feel about this.

Can anyone confirm the values?

Edit: Found different values on here and used those. Closer to 70 Ft lbs.
Took it for a test drive and the thing shook harder than addict jonesing for a fix. So now, assuming the new track bar is perfectly fine, i'd imagine its the CA bushings? It has a pretty decent right pull so I know the alignment needs to be done but the first time it shook it was because I turned left and right in my lane and the second time was going over rail road tracks. This beast needs to get fixed. I can't be the only one around here who has a truck they can drive.
