Don't forget lithium grease. I've done all that myself, and I am by no means very proficient at wrenching. And I don't know where you are, but standard labor down here is like $75/hr. My buddy has a shop and keeps offering me $50/hr rates if I let him work on the jeep. Hell, he offered to...change coils/shocks front/rear, front wheel hubs, front rotors/pads, new trackbar, steering stabilizer, bleed brakes, flush/replace my fluids and alignment afterwards for $500

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

Wait until need replacing. That's what I did...6.5" coils and bilsteins were like $500 I think? Just tell you're replacing broken with better. Worked on my wife....until she saw how hard it would be for her to climb in.

im running 37's and i can power brake with ease, but then again im geared and got a 231 so its different...lol

Do you check your oil on a regular basis? If not, it sounds like it is time to start doing so. First thing you need to do is check your oil now so you know that your engine has the correct amount in it..... then you need to check it weekly until your next oil change. Do you park in a garage? If yes, get you big hunk of cardboard to park on and watch for oil spots.

Finally fixed the front diff. breather hose connection. It came loose about a year ago and I stuck it back in there, but it wasn't tight. When I installed my lift and ran disconnected, the stretching made it come out again and then get pinched. Long story short it is in there pretty snug and I added a couple more inches to the hose so it can flex without popping out (hopefully).

straddled a hill, slipped and went bam.

had to back down a dirt/rock hill with my passenger side dragging. Also lost my passenger mirror in the process as well.

Time to trim the fenders and two tone the jeep with rhino liner.

It is jenson's phase linear series just a cheap flip out. Today I drove to North Carolina from Georgia and it was snowing.
