I was in a pickle anyway, I was at my parents house and needed to get home for work tomorrow. Not too bad, with my discount the control arm was only $70. We don't stock the bolts though, had to go to Oreillys to get them.

Actually, our stock Duralast parts are made by Moog, and they all come with a lifetime warranty

I don't give a **** about lifetime warranty. The one thing I cheaped out on the axle build was ball joints. The driver side lifetime warranty Duralast crapped out with 200 miles on it (maybe even less?). Lifetime warranty doesn't mean anything if I have to replace it every 200 miles.

Anyway. /Rant.

I am looking at doing the ZJ tie rod and want the Moog parts. I want to replace the drag link TREs too while I'm at it.

Finished up the dubJ. Was a ***** the entire time. But after test driving it I must say, the WJ is a good foundation for a build!

I have this week off work. First week I have EVER had off work. Time to get things done around the house, get work done on the Jeep, and have a life for a minute. Plans forming to camp at Silver Lake lend of the week!

I think Oreillys is the only place that sells name brand Moogs, we aren't able to order them. I may be able to through one of our programs since I work the commercial side of Autozone. I don't work the counter anymore. I'll see is our APW program offers them when I'm at work tomorrow.

I ended up with Duralast ZJ tie rod since Moog was out of stock. It's beef for sure, but only one side is greaseable and the side that does take grease at some point puked it out onto the brake rotor. my Jeep.

I am trying to find good deals on loaded calipers for WJ swappy stuff. I know NAPA sells them but haven't checked out AZ. Not ready yet, but soon.

Naaaaw man! Now I'm going to have to burn your retinas up with the Hellas if I pass you on the road. I HATE HIDs in non-projector housings!

I'm looking for something to do next weekend. My 2005 has never seen the dunes.
