Trip, thats the problem. You have to be able to separate myth from fact in these threads. Its kinda like adding a reverse wing to the front of your jeep to get better gas milage.

I have it from good authority that my set-up will be OK. Scout told me!

That woudlnt fit my standards of myth or fact since a wing will just add more drag no matter which way its pointed at (unless its placed on the front bumper down low so its changing the shape of the jeep and making it somewhat sharp in front)

Fox yeah you're right it was Mr C, i couldn't find the thread to confirm it though.

Trip, you are completely wrong on this one in every way buddy. Need to just give it up. When you get to a certain point of lift height your steering starts to get maxed out at the angle it runs at compared to the trac bar. This in turn causes bump steer and other steering woes. This my friend is not a good thing at all. Also when you install longer springs on your jeep the trac bar is forced to a greater angle which also in turn pulls your front axle to the drivers side and your rear axle to the passenger side. This is why you need the adjustable trac bar. You need the drop trac bar bracket and drop pitman arms so that you can re-allign your steering components to be in the same plane as one another so that your front end behaves correctly thru its range of motion.

It has nothing to do with leverage one bit my friend. None at all. There is also no plausible argument on how it does have to do with leverage.

I'm not trying to be a dick fella's, but this is one of the most commonly misstated issues with a coil/link solid axle suspension vehicle. And we always have to correct misinformation in order to make the board as technically correct as possible.

I don't think your being a dick, bad info runs unchecked too long in some threads. When I get corrected I usually learn from it. We need you giant jeep heads to give input as much as you can. Surprisingly JB has been here alot lately and helping.

Okay i agree but what is that certain point you're talking about?

So spacing the 2 holes further apart on a pitman arm does not add leverage? To me the distance between the 2 holes seems different. Blue being equal force, which "red" needs to be stronger?

I installed this because the one in there was junk and dirty; cost me $20 and Autozone:



And I also had insane oxidation on the tires so I bought some Mother's Aluminum/Mag Cleaner.

Here are the rims before:


And after.....ahhhhhhhhhhh

Nah. I just ran two coats of the stuff and the oxidation just came off; well it it came off after several attempts. I also used the Mother's Power Ball which attaches to a drill. It made things a lot easier.

which size powerball did you use? mini or the regular? I'd assume to clean the holes you gotta use the mini?

Looks very good though

Got my new axles right before Christmas for my re-build on my YJ November 2008.

And since I will be going with bigger axles, and since today is my birthday, My wife let me buy some new to me Beadlocks and 42" TSL's..
Will get to pick them up next weekend.



Still have a list of parts that I will have to pick up before November..
(LS1, Coilovers, New Trannie, Heims for the 4 link, Send the Atlas off to have a new shaft put in it .. So on and so forth )
