Replaced a worn out and broken front driver's side spring. Shackle bolts came out pretty easy, but the $4.95 for a new cut off wheel for the angle grinder was a great investment when it came time to remove the u-bolts.

I should replace all the springs, but I'm still trying to decide how far to go with this particular vehicle.

I just had the exact same problem! Did the redrill and lo and behold, it was low just like you said. Ended up tweaking it with channelocks. It's close but not quite right. Cheap crap, luckily I got the mirrors and all the stainless hardware free from a buddy who owns a truck outfitter shop.

just made a little testing of my car after the work: only 15 km;
OK, my CJ is not a B2 but that is more better: the turbo effect is here and it is easier to take a ramp;
no more exhaust gaz smell ans this is realy a good comfort;
other? I have found it on the view;
thank You for the aid of Yours
