Keep up the pics - think it's great to let your son help wrench on it. Brings back good memories of my dad teaching me a few things about cars.

Just a question though. In post 4, the one picture looking at the rear axle from behind. Is the left spring perch twisted up from the spring? It doesn't look straight in the picture.
Yeah, it's twisted, and I don't know why....because of the flat tire maybe? Either way, the springs are getting replaced.

On edit: I just went out and took a look at it...still twisted with the tire aired up, so I don't know what happened.

It IS the winner of the Ugliest CJ...hopefully one day it gets best looking CJ.

Tomorrow, I think I'm going to take the interior out and get the bolts on the body loosened.

Need some expert eyes....is my power steering pump bracket original? It looks like it, but I really don't know. If it is, I'll keep it, but if it's not, I'm going to put a manual gearbox back on...less crap to leak.

Got some and using it liberally. All bolts have come out with no issues, knock on wood.

It makes the job so much more enjoyable when the bolts come out as they should.

Fred, while I generally agree with your post. I do have to laugh because it's actually spelled d o u c h e bag. Calling the kettle black me thinks.

Spaced out the letters otherwise the forum would give it the **** censor.

I know, which is why I spell it that way, besides, he's not even deserving of the correct spelling, because it would insult d o u c h e bags. I call him browneye too, because most of his posts are crap and he's an a s s hole.
