Got my front axle hung last night. Springs, shocks, and control arms are on. I just need to tweak the adjustments a bit. It was wanting to fight with me, so around 10:00 I surrendered and went in the house.
Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
took charge of the jeep at 7;00 am while it was cool out..put new bolt in axle end of steering stabilizer and cranked down on it..
pro comp es3000 shocks are still working good after a few years but the darn lower bushings were shot and i hate to hear any noises so i took them off and replaced the rubber bushings and re-installed them..
this should last a few months i hope as the new bushings arent as good as the originals..
i hate the tj shock set up with 2 bolts and pin thru the bottom..be better if it had a post and washers to keep the bushings snug..to much room for slop..
finished my rear cargo box! ( waiting on speaker box fabric , but pretty much done )
Thats a nice box.... Great work....

Decided to go ahead and jump off with both feet,
Now I have to remove all the othe mods I have and start finalizing my order.
BTF front tube fenders, BTF rockers with step,BTF comp corners, Claytons Double trangulated long arm and the 7" strectch, Clayton Full skid package, using my 4.5" RE springs with a 1" jks body lift as well as a 1" Motor mount lift, and a Currie Anti-rock on the rear to finish it off. These items are a sure thing .Should have it all done in 3 weeks or so, depending on the UPS man and part availability..
Still considering going to an ARB up front and doing away with my aussie as well. I just cant get enough.LOL
