Started installing my Clayton long arm kit....got the stock front suspension off, new mounts welded and front LCA on (not torqued)
SILVER&BLACK 02 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 4.7L V8 HO, Clayton 6" liftT w/ Bilstien 5100's and 2in pucks , 37X12.5 Nitto Trail Grappler M/T's on red and black Creeper Locks, front and back Dana 60 w/ ARB lockers, Chromolly shafts and 5.13 gears, ARB compressor, Flowmaster 50 exhuast, K&N FIPK, IRO front bumper and flares, and Cobra 29NW with firestick antenna.
Took off the front bumper fascia to get Kroil on the front swaybar bushing mount bolts. Found out that I still couldn't get one of the four bolts from there...grrr. Let the three that I was able to access soak... Moved on to the rear, removed the driver's side bushing, lubed it up, but couldn't get the bolts to turn all the way back in. More grrr. All this trouble from rust.
sigh... Hopefully the kroil I put on will work some magic between now and tomorrow/Tuesday...
PS: I'm trying to fix the squeak squeak from bad OEM swaybar bushings....
