I have 6"ers and mine are fine after 6 years... look like new except for a few rubs. But I keep it garaged... sun is never good for plastic.

Funny. I did the same thing today for the same reason.

Hopefully my new trans will be here tomorrow!

What's the problem with yours?

Edit: I also replaced the 40A accessory fuse in the engine bay. Shorted out a hot lead in the cab that was tapped into the unswitched supply.

words, things, stuff

The front sway bar was hitting the frame on passenger side, I moved it back and 5 mins of driving its back in the same spot. I gotta buy some longer links/disconnects (jks quickers ftw) and see if that helps keep the bar from moving.

orderd Rusty's front and rear 3" lift springs...

still researching which way to go with the rear track bar, RC has their brackets on sale for $17.95 Jeep Accessories - Rear Track Bar Bracket but says it's for 2.5" lifts.

Go to your favorie vendor's web site or your search engine and type in:
Sway Bar Clamp System by Fabtech

These are supposed to work pretty well. No experience with them myself.

Not to ask a stupid question, but is your axle centered? (I have the same issue with the warrior quick disconnects I got.) They warriors are junk, but I don't think the frame issue is their fault - just did a lift and the front axle is fairly far off-center. Fixing it this weekend, or maybe tonight if the rain holds off..

I had caught a few rocks in the windshield driving down the highway and had a couple of stars. I just switched insurance so I wasn't sure how they would handle it, but I logged onto their website, filed a windshield claim, and then just set an appointment for the guy to come to my work and fix the windshield. 45 minutes later, the guy was here, fixed the windshield, washed my windows, left me a can of window cleaner, vacuumed my car (!!) - all for free. Pretty awesome!

Not off center that I can see. The only axle that I had to re center was the rear. I guess I could buy an adjustable front track bar instead and see if that fixes the problem.

You don't -have- to recenter it, but it might be off - I used to overhang my fenders by about 1/2" or a bit more on each side. Now I'm even (or more) on the passenger side and the washer on the passenger side swaybar quick-disco is scratching up my frame.. can't help but think there might be a correlation there although the clamps would probably work just as well. (Redrilling the axle mount is free.)

This is true, Gotta figure out how far over I need to drill. Yeah its scratchin my frame pretty bad too.

Now, to figure out what the low growl i hear when decelerating from 25-0 sometimes is. Probably nothing but im a stickler for that ****.
