Too bad you don't have a four door, I'm down to sell my hard top. Been living on the side of my house for a year.

Found that the track bar bolt is the reason there was a screech when compressing rear coils on the trails. Rubbed half an inch of the nut and bolt. I reversed the bolt and now I'm good to go!!!

So it was supposed to be a quick scouting run totally grenaded my rear end instead. Left my jeep overnight in the owyhees then when we got back to town last night got in a car wreck and was side swiped by a mini van and destroyed it! My friends jeep literally drove over the front end of the mini van! Didn't even knock the wheels out of alignment! We were turning left and she was coming right and went wide and right in to our lane. Crazy too cause it was a nice fall day and the doors were off. I was sitting passenger and could've reached out and touched the mini van! What a day.

got bored at work and took some measurements.







Highest i could get front tire up with all other wheels on the ground = 52"

In the rear i could only get 40" without sway bar with sway bar was about 35"

it will have to do though until i get coilovers.

Bought brakes.

Brakes were actually fine just rotated tires.

Added brake fluid as it was quite low gotta check for a leak somewhere.

Bought plugs abd started to pull the wire of the front left cylinder (#1? Or #3?) and the wire broke. Stole a plug wire from my sisters wrecked car drove to appointment.
While making sure that wire will work and is on tight I touched the coil while it was running got a huge shock thought I might die.
And last week I parked on my sisters totaled car

Went up to school today and decided I wanted to park with one tire on the light pole. Didn't disconnect the front sway. Got half way up then decided to just go park. Now my steering Is ****ed up. The wheel is 1/8 turn to the left. Gotta realign it or see what is pulling out of alignment.
Looked at the springs too and they are bowing in about a 1/2" and toward the bottom they are much bigger around than the too and middle sections.
Does that mean the spring is bad? If so ill swap in the other set sittin in the shop.
