    Drum brake wheel cylinder doesn't mate with brake line

    Thanks for your response "be sure to clean the cylinder of any chips should the process produce any." Concerned me also.

    Drum brake wheel cylinder doesn't mate with brake line

    Believe I would put a thread guage on the brake line fitting; find a corresponding tap and run it into the cylinder to smooth the thread fit and then be sure to clean the cylinder of any chips should the process produce any.

    What's everyone's gas mileage?

    MY the Jeep is a 2005 LJ Rubicon 6sp manual. Depends on how I drive it, where I drive it, and where I fill up. Different pumps pump have different flow levels and shut off at different tank levels. I fill at different locations so there is some variation to the fill levels based on pumps. I do...

    Replaced Headlights with Truck-Lite Knockoffs

    B Bought what I believe are the same lights to replace the factory lights which I thought were just plain dangerous. They have been installed for about a month. The improvement is absolutely fantastic. The dims are far better than the brights of the factory lights. Spent the time to adjust them...

    Sway bar and ride quality

    Thanks for the response. The sway bar bushings were far too tight (75 ft lbs)loosened to proper torque only.

    Sway bar and ride quality

    Just re-torqued did not look to see if they were bonded. The sleeves in the end links were not bonded.

    Sway bar and ride quality

    Thanks for your reply. Guess I'm getting used to the idea that it's not realistic to expect it to ride like a Lexus. At any rate it seems to be pretty much trouble free, knock on wood, so now just drive and enjoy all of the qualities it offers that are different and the reason I bought it to...

    I've graduated

    With the advent of the electric car wrench turning is going to change, possibly to almost non existent so enjoy the jeeps and wrenches while these combustion engines are still around.

    Sway bar and ride quality

    After reducing sway bar mounting to frame bolt torque from 70 ft lbs to 45 and greasing the sway bar link bushings both the metal sleeves and rubber inside and out my ride quality seems to have less sharp jarring over bumps. Also cooler temperatures here may play a part. Placebo or real improvement?

    Clunk solved I hope

    Had this irritating clunk at low speed over small bumps or dips driving me nuts. Clearly seemed to be a suspension issue on the right side. First addressed sway bar torque setting which needed of some tightening but that failed to solve the problem. Then disconnected the links, and the clunk...

    How much improvement will I feel going to RS5000X shocks?

    I guess defining comfortable enough is the issue. Which Fox shocks did you buy. Thanks for your comments.
