Got my IRO Bar Pin Eliminators on today. Attempted to do the A-arm spacer and the ball joint would not come off of the arm! Got to get a new one and figure out how to get the old one off.

What's the point in Bar pin eliminators?

I guess it makes it easier to mount your shocks? I dunno. I took mine off and tossed em when I did my recent install. Couldn't see them really doing all that much. More trouble than it was worth to reinstall

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

The bar pin eliminators stop the clunking from the shock sliding back and forth on the bar pin.

Installed my oem hitch this past Saturday. Now all that's left is to rattle my trim and bumper covers.

Side note: don't try the heat gun trick on the bumper covers. Mine came out horribly splotchy. But nothing a little paint cant cover up.

At that temp I wouldnt go outside my house. If I absolutely had to I would wait til the jeep was at full temp before doing anything.

Sorry for the late reply but it allows for compression on the shock bushing. If you notice with the bar pin, there is load on the bushing allowing "clunks" to happen since bumps in the road and what not are not being absorbed by the bushing. It also gives you a little more downtravel since it moves your shock mount up a tiny bit.

finally got some snow in the area and so I went and picked up a new tow strap so I could yank idiots out at the bottom of my hill so I can make it home.

I'd rather drive it up to temp very gently than let it idle rich up to temp diluting the oil with fuel... Sadly though the iced windshield forced me to wait for it to warm up.

Oh speaking of pulling people out of ditches I helped a really cute chick in a Mazda get out of her parking spot, a ford escape out of a ditch, and a camry that had gotten high centered on unplowed road. I really put my recovery equipment to a good test
