threw my new control arm today. Forgot how nice they look brand new. While putting it on I found my JJ that was installed on my currie 44 driver upper is dried out. Tried to press grease into the bolt but it fought me.. Just something else to deal with

You gentlemen will probably need a cooler of freedom light. Let's do this

I prefer freedom over freedom light but they don't make freedom in a can. At least I haven't ever seen it. What pawah.

just a heads-up on a great place to get an alignment if anyone needs one. http://www.yelp.com/biz/roger-daniel...ignment-santee .. This is my 3rd time going there. First time anywhere I'm cautious and skeptical. I went there knowing a number of things were worn/bent/tweaked on the TJ but I didn't say anything as they said they would give it a look over. They told me everything that I knew was wrong and then some. That was when they couldnt get a good alignment and then verified( and showed me) that my dana 30 was bent. That's when I went and got my Currie 44 front end. Then took it back and they did a spot on alignment. Taking it back today for another one since I had to replace a long arm.
The owner is a jeeper and everyone there is pretty cool.. Pricing is from 55.00 to 100+ depending on how beat up your junk is..

Likewise. And about time your junk sees some trails

I make to much money to do an alignment by myself. See what an education affords....

The alignment part only takes about 15 minutes.

I have a jig that cost like 15$. it's a solid axle a laser alignment is almost pointless
