Hopefully it's not cracked.

We checked the lines pretty well and couldn't find any holes or cracks... however, I did notice my TJ has a fresh crack in the manifold. I'm not a rocket scientist, but now that I'm thinking about it, that could be the cause, couldn't it? lol

I'm no expert, but maybe? Sent from my TJ

Edit- did you check on the little vacuum actuator things that make the doors move for the bent directors behind the dash? That's where mine was disconnected.

I had someone go through my jeep last night. Apparently the glovebox got left open (cough cough dad). Luckily there was nothing valuable in there. ******* thief left the glovebox open and my manual on the seat.

You oughta learn sum about batteries before you do that. Better yet, go grab both terminals at the same time and figure out how harmless your planned deterrent really is.

Walked into the garage and smiled at it, after my brother-in-law called to say his 2012 Rubicon Unlimited with 43k miles was back in the shop with another "engine issue".

Granted, the whole body is part of the ground anyway, so it's just not that easy... but ... if some a-hole is messin' with your car, they deserve whatever shock and bodily damage they get! (Then again.. here in Texas we take protecting our personal property a bit more seriously than you folks in California )

Finally got the other CA arm retapped using a tap and adj wrench and got a zerk in it. All that's left is to get over to JCJeep97's house and get them greased and I will be squeak free.

Until those control arm ends start cracking the mounts on the frame and axles...

The other end is a Duroflex joint. I have wheeled plenty of times on double sided bushing joints with no issue, and have never had an issue with these. The Duro is on the frame side, bushing on axle, and I think it's going to have a pretty hard time breaking the 1/4" Artec axle mounts.

Your bushing on the axle end of the control arm doesn't relieve the stress applied to the mount that its installed in, that also puts additional stress on the Duroflex joint... IMO

The only stress it would produce that the Duroflex can't counter is side to side lateral stress, due to the fact the bushing can't rotate side to side. However, I do not see that ever being significant enough to damage the stock frame mount. The rotational stresses will be much more significant but the rotation from the Duro joint will handle those. It doesn't provide nearly as much stress as the double bushing arms they replaced. These are not permanent anyways. Just have to last me another year or two until I can gather the supplies needed to stretch and 4 link the rear end.
