I installed front and rear JKS track bars, Replaced both front upper control arm bushings on the axle with both being a Johnny joint grease joints, rebuild the control arm bushings, adjusted the caster angle to 4.3 degrees, along with moving the front axle , new Currie lower rear control arms, moved the rear axle back , alined both front and rear axles to center line. After all that the steering was off about a half of a turn, more adjustment. Brent and I went up to Crawford Ranch off road park to check out the new parts along with the adjustments, all worked out well. Cleaned about a 100 pounds of Crawford Ranch mud off my Jeep. Let it dry and checked all my measurements, small adjustments on the front lower control arms. Changed out front and rear Diff fluid. I think my Jeep is ready for this new year of wheeling.

Back to the jack stands. My RCV axles have been making a crunching sound. talk to RCV performance they told me to pull them and send them back for a free rebuild (well mostly free). Pulled the front axles last night wrapped and strapped ready to be sent back. Ya have to love them warranty's! while I'm waiting to get the RCV back I'll service the differential, drain the fluid, use brake cleaner to flush them out inspect everything, add a bit of fluid until I can get the axles back. So for now my Jeep is up on jack stands. I hope I can get them back and installed before the run on the 23rd of this month. Maintenance,maintenance, maintenance. If ya wheel ya have to service you rig.

Off the Jack Stands last night. Its about time, the Jeep is Ready (almost)test drive today to check out the RCV axles Rebuild, they were sounding like marbles in a tin can rolling down a hill. Cleaned out the front Differential, check the wear on the teeth, looking good for 40K on the gears. trying out the AMSOIL in the Diff. About the only repair left is the front wheel bearings the drivers side was making a bit of noise (rumble rumble), anyway the bearings have been ordered, and should be in possible next week for install. Getting ready for MOAB.
