Just ordered all 4 Moog tie rod ends from advance auto. With the coupon code TRT37, got them for $29 a piece. Only 15 cents more a piece than rockauto shipped. I'll take it...

Got my motor back from the machine shop. If your in the 916/530 area of California, Moores engine supply is a great little place. Unfortunately, when I put the engine on the stand and went to install the crank, the crank I received from EPW (engine performance warehouse *I think*) had a nice little score on one of the rod journals. Have to get it swapped out for a different crank. Another few days of waiting before I can get it together I guess. Just excited to get everything together again and pull the dub out of the storage facility. And I also found the production date on the block. Just a little cool info for myself

Damn, sounds like a real money pit for you. Pretty soon you'll have a whole new WJ. What are you asking?

See, now that you've done all of that work, selling it is kind of giving someone a gift. Lol. While it's frustrating to look back on a long list of new parts, don't forget to look forward at the increasingly short list of old ones.

Exaxctly. Feel that way about mine some days with all the isseus, but suspension replaced, ball joints, wheel bearins, seals, new engine etc. Better just fixing my steering issue than to seel and get something else and start all over again.

And as for that, alignment done, slight tweaked but issue still there and was done at the dealership. They think it's actually my intermediate shaft giving the issues. If you pull up on it there's play in it. Luckily I have another one that is pretty new (from the wreckers that someone replaced)

Now the question is, what's the best and easiest way to go about changine this out? By removing the steering column? or is there a simpler way I'm not aware of?
