Changed the Diff/Transfer case fluid, put on the front Diff Guard. Rear Diff Guard was wrong.

n topic: finished brakes yesterday. Feels a lot better, like it actually stops now. Front pads weren't bad at all, think I did them less than 30k ago. But one of the slide pins was toasted and the boot was torn, luckily I got the last hardware kit the parts store had. Will post up a review after a week or so.
Any update on the brake install? How are they working out so far?

I remember someone talking about there being kits to fix WJ broken seats. Do a search, you should find it. I know I posted a link to it three or four months ago on this thread.

Finally got my WJ with the new suspension setup put back down on it's wheels last night.

I installed IRO ajustable long arms up front, adjustable upper A arm, and adjustable lower short arms and stacked a set of Fat Bob's spacers on top of my IRO springs.

So now it's a 4" spring with 2.5" spacer in the front and a 3" spring with a 2" spacer in the rear.

Hopefully I'll get around to finishing the job tonight. Just need to:
  • adjust the trackbar
  • dial in the caster/pinion angles
  • center the steering wheel

The setup acutally looks pretty good. I'll post pics after I dial everything in and get is driving.

Can't wait to see it. Just outa curiosity, why wouldn't you just get 6"springs, instead of using the pucks??

Yup. Might try to fashion some sort of grill in the holes to make it look better. I don't use the upper heat much anyway because the floor heat goes away when I do. Must have bad blend doors.

Work great. Pretty happy. Wouldn't mind getting better pads from oreillys though. Gotta love lifetime replacement. But they stop great, haven't hauled anything yet, but they should do fine.

My IRO springs are like new, so instead of yanking them out and trying to sell them at a loss then buy new springs and pay for shipping I decided to be cheap/lazy and just drop in the spacers for $100ish.

I don't even need the lift to run bigger tires (yet) so I just kinda threw the spacers in because I have all the rest of the parts to support the taller lift.

I was cheap/lazy on the shocks too. I think my Bilstiens (also like new) are only supposed to be rated up to like 4" of lift.

I was able to get 2.5" shock extensions from a JK to work up front with the use of JK shock bushings (I had a spare set laying around from when I upgraded my JKU Sport to stiffer stock springs & Rubicon shocks) which should be fine.

The rear shocks are just going to be a little short but I'm just going to run it and hope they work ok.
