Autozone sells "throttle body cleaner"...and a toothbrush...I wouldn't advise rinsing in a sink, just wipe it off good. At least not on the hemis steer by wire tb.

If you already have the sway links and shocks disco'd try jacking the opposite side and pulling it out that way. Otherwise disconnect the upper control arm on the side that's giving you the problem.

So I replaced my rear spring isolators that had 80k miles on them for $20 and got a 3/4" lift! I know they'll settle down a little but figure I will have a half inch lift for quite awhile

Cleaned out BT oil catch can; re-installed engine beauty cover.

Ordered Raybestos Advanced Technology rotors (#780296), Advanced Technology brake pads (#ATC1041C), and bushings for rear axle from RockAuto.com. Even got 5% discount coupon.

Installation will be next weekend's project (79K miles and rear brakes are now pulsing). After 4 Grand Cherokees, this will be the first non-MOPAR brakes I've used.

Following omelet's recommendation for brake mfgr and other members' recommendation for rockauto.com service. Thanks for the input everyone.

Drove it all over holy heck in the rain and the slush and the snow, doing the weekend go here, go there, get this and that done, in three New England states.

Even my wife the Lexus pilot says "this is just a great vehicle. This may be the one you just have to keep, no matter what else you buy."

It does like to ride

Walt, you're gonna like the raybestos pads/rotors. Nice parts. Now have them on all four corners of my WK, as well as the Lex..
