Fixed her Brakes.


Rear drum adjuster took a crap. Which let the wheel cylinder blow out.
Which gave me a mushy brake pedal to the floor on the highway type situation.
No brakes at all, and 60miles from home.




However today I did learn how to install drum brakes

Worked on the jeep today or the third day in a row. Still not happy with the suspension. Today I swapped my old springs and BB for some V8 ZJ coils... Still not level. Need another inch.

Who makes a 1 or 1.5" spacer?

Took it for its inaugural run after installing an SYE and adjustable uppers this weekend. It did well but I noticed I had less flex than before. Crawled under to make sure everything was in good order and realized that I need an angled track bar bracket now... I'm amazed I didn't run across the need for this during my research on SYE installs (and kind of surprised I didn't see it while rotating the pinion). Of course now that I am running into binding issues I have found several threads on the subject. Oh well, live and learn I guess.

You can get a nice rubicon with the same amount of miles or less for 16k around me.

Back on topic though, ordered some centric brake calipers, pads, and rotors.

That has to be one of the most annoying signatures ever.
