The rear sway bar is usefull, helps keep the rear springs in place also
Yeah. After a bit more driving last night and this morning I think I have decided to put it back. I like the leaning in curves but it freaks others out... a lot.

Plus it was really just an experiment to see what it is like without one. I have read on the forums as well as others about the use of 2 swaybars working off each other but you never really know what it feels like until you drive around with one.

Havent tested it at hard bump just what I flexed yesterday. 1/4" before the tire hits the armor and that was the axle on the bump stops.

Yep. That sheetmetal and the measurement I had from the last ride I did and the measurement I took from my old tires to these new ones is what I used to make the cuts. I have 1/4" or so below the sheetmetal which is where I made my cut. I believe I am as low as I can comfortably be now


So on to new business, how can I press these in? Just use a lot of force? Lube up? Any particular type of lube? intructions, what instructions?

I tried to hard press them in last night with my counter top 1/2 press with no luck.

I have used Vaseline, a block of wood and a mallet before. If that doesn't work, freeze the bushing, use a torck and heat up the metal, it should just slide right in...

Use diswashing soap, a bolt, a socket and some big washers and just draw them in.

Well, the bushings are installed in the links but still not under the jeep.

Had a friend weld up my front axle u joints and pulled a new-to-me winch this weekend and helped some friends with their projects mostly. Not much done on my jeep, but it does look like we might might be able to stay in a air conditioned modile home next weekend for wheeling!

I have thursday off to finish the last few things and we leave friday. race is at 2 pm, results are saturday night and it looks to be a beautiful and cool weekend.

Here are a few pictures. If you can guess what the name of the mfg and model number on the winch, you will get my respect. Here is the hint, mfg's name is also known as a psych hospital.

Looks like an old Bellevue 8274.

It is a belleview but that is the warn #. Belleview 5687. Single pull 6k rating that they way under rated. I haven't found out what 5687 means but the warn 8274 is 8k pulling (under rated), 2 way motor, started in 1974 meaning this 5687 is at least 40+ years old. I'll probably never restore it but it is cool looking. It also is now the third winch I have sitting in the "shop".

Nice. That would be cool to put on a shelf in the shop next to some other old 4x4 stuff.

Yeah. I hope so. I might have just found something that could keep me from going. I hope not.

Removed rear stock swaybar due to 3 bushing being bad. Decided to leave it off for the time being. Replace bushing and bar later if needed.

Links.



Big boy zip ties to mount axle shafts to cage (not sure where yet)





And then I test drove it. Since the jeep got it's lowered stance, the rear shocks never fully have extended I figured due to binding or something. I think it was the stock swaybar now.

Still need to think about the gas cap...









It feels a lot looser and leans in the corners pretty well now while driving fast but still feels stable. I drove over a bunch of stuff while test driving as well as drove some terrains at speeds most would call go fast stuff and the jeep just felt plain stable/comfortable. I'll give it a couples weeks and at least one offroad trip without the sway bar to get the final answer on putting it back or not.
Was you testing the flex near the Aces ball field?
