  1. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Going to be replacing the rear shocks with Bilstein 5100s and this will be the biggest job I will do on my Jeep! What tools do I need and what should I look out for? I have WD40 and some basic household hand tools. :smile2:
  2. Tires & Wheels
    I bought my jeep used, and the last owner added a locking nut to the spare tire, but didn't give me the key. the link below should be a picture of what the head looks like. I've been looking online to buy the same lock, but I can't find any markings that indicate a brand, or serial number. I...
  3. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I have a '99 XJ and I want to take the NSS out to clean it. I've looked at many tutorials/videos on how to do it, but I'm running into some thing that I'm not sure is just part of the process, or the result of a stuck/rusty nut. I had no problem getting that top 12mm bolt out. I read to loosen...

    Whose got a good tip for freeing up a stuck axle nut. This thing is REALLY stuck. Almost certainly hasn't been removed in the 23 year life of the jeep. Soaked it in liquid wrench and WD-40, tried a breaker bar, tried a breaker bar with two people, tried a breaker bar and a 3ft steel pipe with...

    This nut fell out of my 01 this morning. I started up the Jeep this morning and it fell out. It was laying under the skid plate, more rear than forward. I drove about fifteen or twenty miles and it drove fine. When I got to my dad's house, I crawled under and couldn't find anywhere that it could...
  6. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hey guys, so my 1990 XJ is running a little rough lately, so I'm trying to clean up the ground. Found the bolt on the block where the ground wires are. It's next to impossible to get past all the wires and hoses, but once I got in there, I realized that every time I tried to turn the nut, the...

    Ok quick question... I need to replace 3 stock nut and cotter pins for the 2 tie rod ends and the pitman arm tie rod, but cannot find them anywhere... I have found castle nuts that are 1/2 20 which seems to be the correct thread, but the castle nut is just a nut with a 'crown' on top. I have...
  8. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    The nut welded on the inside of the frame broke free. The bolt is free floating in the hole. What have others done in this situation? Here's my plan: Cut a rectangle on the bottom of the frame rail, but leave the black lines intact. Cut in the middle of the rectangle, and fold the two flaps...

  10. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I know I saw it, can't find it now. 2001 lug nut torque anyone? Also, I use anti-seize compound on marine outboards, which typically have pretty low torque specs, and never had anything work loose. Thinking of using it on everything Jeep, after breaking off all those upper shock bolts. Is it...

    Anyone use locking wheel lug nuts (the ones you need the special adapter for to unscrew one of the lug nuts on each wheel)?
