Just got the email confirmation that my IRO Adj UCAs have arrived at home awaiting me at the door step... now to FINALLY decide if I should go standard rubber bushings or go poly bushings for them on the axle side... weekend project will hopefully be a go!


Failure is the chance to begin again, with increased intelligence... 100

Put some new drilled-slotted rotors and ceramic pads on. After breaking them in and a 20 minute highway drive to cool them off, they stop on a dime. Perfect for the mountains
Sorry for only two pictures. I was running out of daylight

Yup. They're amazing. Got mine of eBay last year. Almost went thru the windshield first time I hit the brakes hard buuuut when I changed my front hubs on Sunday I noticed the inside of each rotor was worn almost 50% more than the outside. The calipers were replaced at the same time I put the rotors on. So, WTF?

I got mine right from currie's website. I believe they are 1 1/4" 20 right hand threads with a 2.6"ish wide head for the control arms? Track bar might be different. I bought them probably a month back and just now had time to install them.

Before I ordered them I emailed Zack over at IRO and he was able to tell me what I needed. I would highly recommend it to anyone running the IRO flex joints. No offense to IRO, I love most of their stuff and above all their customer service, but their flex joints are horrible.

I'm starting to think my parents didn't buy me enough tonka trucks as a kid.

Front and rear tow hooks have arrived. The rear is pretty rusted. It will have to be refinished. Waiting on the mounting hardware

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is

Oh I think we all know haha

Found my pinion seal leaking on the 30. Maybe time for a 44swap. The 30 would basically require a full rebuild at this point. So now I just decide where my money goes first; radiator, transmission mount, axle, or brakes. Hard to prioritize

Recently installed IRO extended rear sway bar end links and a new JKS HD adjustable track bar. Was on a role so changed all rotors and pad to Stillens along with swapping the front calipers to Akebonos. Had a bit of an issue - broke a banjo bolt on the front caliper and had an 'Oh Sh*t' moment. No one had one in stock, had to wait a day for Napa to get one for me. Finally finished them up and now good to go. Might bleed the brakes a bit more before hitting the trails this weekend!

2001 WJ 4.7L Quadra-drive, UC springs w/ 2" BB, Bilstein 5100s, double cardan front axle swap, Moog Trail Boss SS, 245/70/17 General Grabber AT2 tires,
1.5" Spidertrax spacers, Rola rack, Uniden CB w/ 4' Firestik, JCR Stage 3 rock sliders, JKS HD Adj. track bar, IRO 3" rear sway end links, Akebono swap.
