the plans are to replace the tie rod, fab some good bumpers with a swing out tire carrier on back to get all that weight of the back of the body. rebuild the rear drive shaft, replace the coolant reservoir. u-pol raptor the inside black and the outside clear color matched to the bug next to it, then on component at a time replace every seal on the jeep.

Sorry to hijack, but my drive shaft looks the same as yours. How bad/dangerous is a DS in this condition? I suspect mine is due to my 4 in lift. What;s the best way to fix this and prevent it in the future?

my ds has probably been that way for a while and what has happened is dirt gets into the slip joint and it wares really bad, that makes it loose and sloppy, which then allows it to spin out of balance, which causes vibration and extra were on u-joints and yokes. if not replaced or rebuilt it will ultimately fail when going down the road, if it brakes at the back it will just spin around tearing up the entire back of the jeep(think big hammer spinning like weed eater) if it breaks up front it will also spin around and destroy everything in reach but just for fun if it hits the ground while you are still moving forward the entire jeep gets shot into the air (think pole vault at 55mpr. been know to total vehicles and kill people) hope that explains it I personally plan on replacing it not rebuilding it once the slip joint is worn the metal is gone and it will never be rite.

yesterday I decided to check the brakes and I'm glad I did. The po did the lift but didn't replace the brake lines with the longer ones I found that they were cracked and leaking from being over extended here's the old one

dcp34921.jpg

I spent most of the day finding replacements the only place that had them was napa but they wanted 35.99 for one at the stock length and would have to order the longer ones. then I found a shop called parker that fabbed them while I waited, and the total bill was only 37.00

you mentioned replacing all the seals. Thats a hell of an undertaking. I planned on it and figured I could do it in 2 weeks. replacing every seal/gasket in my motor except the head. I am down to the oil pan and valve cover getting paint and put back on this weekend. Then reassemble PS pump and put the pulleys on. Replace the manifolds and put a newly rebuilt weber on.

I can try and provide a list of all the gaskets I used for mine if you would like.

you could replace all the seal except for the rear main in about 45 minutes not talking about axles and transmission
