Clock-spring fix?

Can you guy's help me find a write-up on the faulty clock-spring fix, I just figured out that it's been causing all my electrical and mechanical problems. I just want to know how hard it is to do it myself.Thanks!

It's pretty easy, I forget where I saw the writeup. Basically you rent a steering wheel puller, detach the battery cable, take the airbag off (the bolt heads are behind the wheel facing the dash), pull the wheel using the puller, and swap the clockspring. If you don't have cruise control, you should be able to find them for free if you have a friendly dealer arond since they get replaced when you add cruise.

2001 TJ Sport 2" coil lift, 31" TrXus, swapped in 3.73s, ORFab cage, Aussie front locker, A to Z Fab rocker skids, JeepMedic Oil Pan Skid, JeepMedic LCA skids, Alloy USA D30 Seals, Warn Diff Skids, Cobra 75wx CB, Jeeperman prototype front bumper, 9.5ti, custom rear bumper, Rokmen frame tie-in kit.

I believe the FSM process is a little more involved than that. It includes draining the captive memory of the air bag and a disconnect process for the air bags computer prior to removal of the air bag itself.
