I had death wobble on my way into work this morning. The steering has felt sloppy all week. I found the front trackbar hole at the axle bracket to be ovaled out. I went over to a friends house and we welded a grade 8 washer over the oval. It works great. I hope this is a lasting fix.

Fixed my death wobble too!!! I got 90% of it yesterday by balancing the tires.

After that I didn't get any deathwobble... but I did get just a bit of a shake feeling after some bumps.

Tonight I removed the 0.75" spacers from the front springs that I had put on with the lift to level the weight of the winch... turns out they're not needed with these springs and just made the suspension unsettled. Definately was too much for a short arm design I guess.

Recieved my harborfrieght winch mount today. If only the dealership could put my Jeep back together for me, then I could mount it up.

Welded up the rattling heat shield on my muffler. Fire + Man = Fun, Either weld it or Bar-b-que it.

I left my tailgate open when I left the lake. When I made my first right the boat pinched it and bent the hell out of it. Niiiice.

Had a great day wrenching on mine. The plan was just to get the front brakes done, but everything was going so well and the weather was beautiful, so I knocked out all the little jobs I'd been meaning to get to.

Front brake pads, rear shoes, adjusted brakes and cleaned the mud out of everything brake related. It stops well enough now that I can chirp the 32's at will when coming to a stop and the e-brake only takes being pulled halfway up to hold the Jeep.

Finally installed the storage pins for my JKS disco's.

Reinstalled my front Superflex LCA's. I bought them used and it seems that I installed them backwards. I was having no problems with them, but I just figured that I should get them straight.

I also installed the rear Superflex LCA's as well.

My CB antenna was starting to flop around with the added resistance of a flag I had to add. So, I replaced the mount with a newer one.

I finished up by modifying my stock tire carrier to work with the BS of my new wheels and to repair some problems that had developed with it. The tire now fits and is tight up against a modified rubber tirestop so that it doesn't rattle.

I cut my Bestop instatrunk to work with my Tuffy underseat drawer and installed an extra cigarette lighter plug behind the glove box for my Sirius radio, using the switched extra power wire DC kindly provides.

Finished the rack install. Expect to spend some time drilling if you get the Warrior Safari Sport Rack.
