Installed my Moog steering stabilizer on my 04' WJ SE today. Does this install seem legit?

Any possibility you could upload a picture larger than a postage stamp? It's difficult to see what's going on here.

Nice WJ! That's weird seeing yellow on a ZJ, but it looks awesome on that JK!

What kind of tweeters did you replace them with? Just new stockers?

I think there should be as well. I had to go out and buy a longer bolt for mine.

The other thing you might want to do is turn that clamp towards the rear a little which will keep the stabilizer in line with the other suspension components. I was told that they don't work as well when they are at that that angle.

Found out that my passenger side axle bushing had actually popped out. I noticed some movement in it when I moved the control arm by hand, so I decided to pull the arm off and as soon as I did, the bushing just fell out of the bracket

The bushing still looked good, but I noticed the bracket was a little boogered up, so I did my best to straighten/flatten it out and was able to get the bushing back in by using a c-clamp, a small piece of fence post and a small piece of wood. The bracket didn't collapse while I was pressing it back in, but I'm not sure the hole is wallowed out. I checked the bushing again after running errands all day and it looks like it stayed in place.

I suppose that if it starts popping out again I can tack weld it in place. If that doesn't work, does anybody make replacement brackets?

I love ZJ's that are in really good condition. I think they are a very good looking car. And of course I'm liking the 5.9....

Is it broken?

I believe it was powerbass. The stockers are $50 each. You can get a pair on ebay for $30 shipped. So far they sound crisp, but I think my infiniti's were blown for a while.

I put powerbass component tweaters to replace the dash, and rear doors, and memphis reference in the front doors powered through a powerbass 4ch amp, and for bass put in a complimentary powerbass amp. Sounds infinitely better without costing too much at all.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!
