Was kinda looking for a small "I'm bored" project to do to day so I did the torque management elimination today. I ended up putting in a toggle switch in that I had laying around.

Have someone get in the driver's seat and jerk the steering wheel left and right and see if everything is solid or if you have movement in the bushings. Sometime there's all clicking because the bushings are completely gone. Moog makes great TRE's avail from rockauto.com and if you're going to do it yourself, it's easier if you pick up the bar with the adjusting sleeves for pretty cheap.

Here's a 5% off coupon too, just enter it in the How did you hear about us field: 1387537610156846

I was looking at replacing the CA's to adjustables from IRO. I'm almost at 4" of lift and was thinking it would be a good idea.

I looked on rockauto.com at the Moog ones. I'm a little confused between the different ones there. I know I need the outers, but there's one from the pitman arm to the steering arm and one from steering arm to steering arm.

There are 4 all together and I posted the part numbers either in this thread earlier this week or another one if you do a seach. I also just bought and received the IRO front upper and lower adj CA's and will install them soon. Don't forget to order the 2 upper arm to chassis bushings that are not on the arms. You can get Crown replacements from Kolak for $15 each + shipping.
