Check all the bolts. Even the nuts at the top of the strut. The ones inside the engine bay!

I have a clunk in the front also so I looked at my sway bar bushings today while it was on the lift. My goodness what a gap they have where the slit is cut in the factory bushings. I def need some new ones.

I noticed the other day when I jerked the wheel pretty quick that my suspension has gotten a case of the clunks. Must be getting old.

Took mine for the first road trip since buying it. Worked a million times better than my XJ.

mounted the spacers, checked the brake pads (getting close). while I was tightening the fronts the drivetrain was rocking and I could mimic the clunk! so does that mean the isolators are shot, right? going to begin the OME lift DIY with the rear, don't know if I can tackle the front myself. what I seen was pretty rusted under there, lack of tools, etc. need tires asap too.

Didn't really do anything to the WK itself, but I did pick up this cool little window mount for my phone. It is a dock that enables it to use both front and rear cameras, and switch to horizontal to landscape modes. I found a way to keep it by the A pillar nice and discreet and looks great with the navigation. Then I wanted to try it as a video camera and surprisingly it worked very well. A little vibration but not bad at all for what it is! A phone! (Tons of pollen and marks on the windshield along with the glare doesn't help).


Definitely gonna love this next year in the snow, or when I go offroading with the YJ. Love that It powers the phone too so I don't have to worry about the battery.

Which plastic rails? The ones on the doors? Doesn't that leave exposed holes in the doors now where the clips were? I hate mine, especially now that the sun has gotten to them a little.
