Checking with seller now. Appears to be a complete matching set with 3.73 gears.

Why not just get the entire truck?

Yeah, looks like it's probably a scam.

That's the plan. I've got a small bull bar bent up and ready to go too. Just had plenty of company on my days off and no time for the ZJ...

Nice! Now that youve got the radius arms removed you can install the real suspension.

Long arm kit? Does it just bolt on, no welding?

Got the front pads swapped around. They're sitting much better now, but still a little gap on the top now, instead of the bottom. But I did notice that pushing the rotor to the hub and banging on the caliper a bit did seem to cinch things up, so I'm assuming with the wheels on, they should be sitting against the knuckle.

I would take the pads out of the caliper and see if they fit correctly on the knuckle without the caliper. I WOULD NOT drive it like it is now.

I just put pads on two of my '98 ZJs last week and the pads fit nice and snug to the knuckle, no gaps.

Behold, the redneck under-Jeep Hack-n-tap drill press.



The drill isn't lined up straight in the photo as I had to hold the camera, but with two hands you can line things up right and squeeze the trigger with one hand and pull on the 2x4 with the other - it's jammed against the parking brake bracket and works like a big lever. A bit awkward but man did it make drilling a hundred times easier. The IRO drill jig helps a lot too, I didn't even need to bother with a pilot hole.

Good to know.

I may just pick up some new pads and throw them in. I have no idea how old these ones are in the first place, since they've been on there since the PO and I've owned this Jeep for almost two years now.

Steering wheel vibrating (not shaking I think) between 25-30mph (on road and off road ). No shaking at all doing slower of faster. Does not matter how smooth the road is.

Is it like DW or wheel balance issue?

I'd take a look at your front drive shaft u-joints for play.
