Who Wants To Install Some Parts For Me??




I need to install a Tie Rod, Tie Rod End and a Drag Link Bar on my ZJ. I know I will need an alignment afterwards. I guess while I am down there, I should also install a Steering Stabalizer as well.


So who would be up for the challenge?


And.... I also need to install a new radiator, upper and lower radiator hose, water pump and while I am there add my trans cooler too.


I am some mechnical skills, but not enough to get this job done

I may be up for the job. Where are you located and how soon do you want it done? Do you already have all the parts?

I am in Brookfield.

I have all the parts except the steering stabilizer.


To be honest, I've had the parts for 1.5 yrs now lol

I guess I would like to do it any time. Have you done this stuff before?

It should all be pretty easy to do. You can possibly get away without doing an alignment right away if you measure everything right. I recently changed all my steering components and did a 4.5 inch lift and havent gotten an alignment. I dont plan to until i get a new set of tires down the road. There are tons of homebrew alignment tutorial online that i used to get mine just right. I have done radiators in the past and also pretty easy. The trans cooler shouldnt be hard either just disconnecting a few lines here and there. What are you giving as far as compensationn for the job, if any at all? I have all the tools to do all these jobs. Let me know whats a good time for you and I can meet you out by you if you wanted to. That would probably be the easiest in case you hit any snags and its not drivable, which I doubt since all the work is fairly easy.

As for compensation, what ever seems necessary. Of course I will be lending a hand. I have mechnical knowledge, jsut never done any of the above parts mentioned.

As far as coming to me, I really don't have the garage space to do this job. Do you have a space available? anytime is good for me. I do however still need to order my steering stabalizer for the front end.

Let me know when is good for you

If you need any help let me know. I have a garage to do the work in and all the tools nessasary. the parts shouldnt be that hard like saul 32 said. I come from a family of mechanics. I'm some what familiar with all the parts and my father has 22 years of experience of being a mechanic. let me know. you can also Private Message me. unless you got this done.
