Easy enough to do by yourself quickly like that?
You can spray the underside of a few of them with pb, from under the jeep iirc....

Seat bases aren't too bad to remove. The passenger one needs to be folded forward to access those rear bolts. So if I remember right, it's easier to remove the rears then the fronts

Was halfway successful with fixing my trackbar bolt. I had just about stripped it out last time I installed it, and it had loosened up so I decided it was time to deal with it. Got the bolt out after some creative thinking.

image-2043347840.jpg

But no local places had a class 12.8 bolt to replace it, and I couldn't drill out the bushing to put in the 7/16" grade 8 bolt I used to have in the old trackbar. Put in a class 8.8 for now and will just have to check it every once in a while til I can find a better bolt. I talked with my neighbor who's a machinist and he said he may have a reamer to ream out the bushing sleeve, so I'll see if that works.
