Thanks...thought about this too. I was at a friend's house the night before but noticed no wobbling or noises. Not a great neighborhood. Thief...jealous ex-husband of my friend...jealous landlord...

Copied from my build thread...

Suspension parts I designed and had cut on the water jet...



The slots allow bending by hand tools - no need for a big machine press brake



Unfortunately waterjet place missed out 2 parts and fused 2 parts together (no idea how) so they had to be re-done, and I made some fine adjustments to the control arm mounts.

Round 2 from the water jet place



Bent to shape and a much better fit, so much so it stays in place on pressure alone. All marked up and ready to be welded tomorrow.







These are the upper control arm mounts that will be between the frame rails....



This is the most complicated one - very pleased with it - 8 folds out of one piece of metal This is the combined bracket for the rear upper control arm AND the rear trackbar. This side is the control arm side...



This side is the track bar (panhard bar) side...



In the redesign I reduced the number of joins making it easier to form the shape.




Now it's handed over to a friend with plenty of welding experience (I have none) to make everything solid.

Very, very cool

Sent from my TJ

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Yeah, mine were hard to get loose as well, but I didn't have to resort to pliers.

Finished front brake pad install. I used Performance Friction pads and turned the factory rotors. The rotors were in good shape, no warping or uneven wear. Pretty good considering I managed to get 71k out of the original pads. Next time I plan on a brake upgrade, but I do notice better stopping with these pads. Thanks to Stu Olsons excellent write up, it was probably the easiest maintenance I've done in a while. Yay, Stu!

Couldn't sleep, nervous about a job interview. Woke up at 3 and changed the u-joints. Then I went out and got a new job. Not really a what did I do to, but what I did for. The mods will be coming in now
