So ... What do you think? I'm tempted by this to see if I can get a little better burn of my fuel.

Those stickers ^ are great. I really like em
It kinda ran bad at first but I drove home from work and ECM started to do it's thing and it's runs smoother and quieter it's still has a little rough idle but it seems to be getting better hopefully when I get the screamin demon coil it will help I'm drive to TX in 6 hours so it should self adjust on my trip I got 14 to 14.6 when I went last week we'll see what it does tomorrow

Got it aligned after the LCA swap. Drives like a dream now. Of course, now that my front LCA bushings aren't fubar, it follows the crowing in the road like crazy. I'm pretty sure it would be possible to take a road course with only mild turns, and between banking the road and a series of carefully placed dips, get a ZJ to follow the course on its own with the cruise control set and no driver input at all. The steering on the highway is definitely better though, and between that and the new tires, no more 50mph shimmy.
