I have new ball joints, am going to replace the pinion and axle seals and put new coil spring insulators on. I don't want to ever have to do this again. lol
I used DOM tubing and a large washer to reconstruct my spring perches. Otherwise, I noticed that IRO now has new perches for the WJ (they still need to be welded on). They didn't have these back when I needed them.

Not too bad for $30. I think I paid $15-20 for the materials alone and this one is half done.. Just cut off the old ones and weld on the new.

Its amazing what you can find at the bottom of the sea if you look! Thats quite serious "golden body lightener"!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

I've checked those lines and took the bumper off so many times I forgot, still to no avail. P04456 P 0044. I've been driving with that light on for awhile now. I figured I'd check the codes again the other day, now I have the clockspring code. Just piling them on.

O.k., spent several hours removing grease, dirt and crud. There turned out to be a nice looking axle assembly under all of it. Factory paint and stickers were even still there. Took a wire brush attachment on a drill and cleaned off all of the loose rust and crud on the ends. After that, the coil spring perches were the only areas that still looked horrific. De-greased the whole thing and coated it with Eastwood's rust encapsulator. After I weld new perches on, I'll paint the entire thing with Eastwood's chassis black and install the new ball joints. While it's out, I'm also going to change the pinion and axle seals. I have no intention of taking this apart again. lol

Ordered a Heater core and a EVAP core.

Now I'm just debating how much to do while I have the dash out. The blower quit working and I'm not sure the exact root of the problem. If I purchase a blower motor from rock auto would I also need to purchase the resistor so I don't have the melting plastic connector again or does it come with the blower motor?

I'm also going to do the blend air doors but I want to make sure I'm getting the right kit with with the beefed bits. The pic with the brown doors is from rock auto and the pic with the white doors is from JC Whitney. Both are part number 902307, I believe. So which is the right one?!

#confused.

I posted the WJ for sale on Craigslist for $2900. Then I got a bunch of texts from people in Ohio and Minnesota telling me it was a surprise for there dad and to give them all my Paypal info so they could wire me the money. Decided to screw with them a bit. Surprised to find out that 3/4 of them were at sea and could only reply via text. Then they start asking what my profession was and I told them Federal Law Enforcement. No more texts after that.

Got a new engine code and began trying to figure out the cause and fix it.....Engine code is P1494.

Leak Detection Pump Sw or Mechanical Fault

Incorrect input state detected for the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) pressure switch.

Researching fixes on other tabs as I type this....
