sounds cool dist.. did you snap any pics?

i got my d35 out from under my jeep.. since i couldnt get the trackbar to unbolt from it, i unbolted it from the frame.. this made it a PITA to remove it.. and i broke the last bolt i had to remove.. does anybody know if a dealer will carry a upper CA bolt?

oh well i got it done by myself, only spending about an hour and 45 minutes total over the last 3 nites.. come home at like 8ish, shower, eat, and then go back out to work on my jeep.. what a fun nite =p

OK back to the thread...

I did my civic duty and helped a fellow Jeeper. I helped my neighbor replace his front sway bars links on his Sahara.

Spent 6 hours preping it.

Cleaned off all greas and junk. spemt alot of time with a the wire wheel. Then sanded a little and took the dremal to it to get all the small spots. Then used that stuff you brush on and hose off and it gets ride of some rust. Then primed and 2 coats of paint. Spent alot of time on it but wanted to make it nice since I will be trussing it and putting in the super35 with arb i have in it.

After the lift and tires this summer I'll take both axles out paint the front do ball joints and all that stuff. I'll do 4.56 or 4.88 depending on what size tire. Put my super 35 in the rear and maybe a super 30 in the front.
this will make me a super turd.



I plan on doing all the axle work my self but this will be a little ways down the road. I couldn't pass up the deal I got on the arb/super35.

I didn't realize that your upper mounts are above the frame... any advantage to that?

Close. I bent the lower control arm. And it is still bent. Only I twisted it around to put the bend down so I had a better chance of bending it back in place. The uppers should never fail. They are 1.75 x .375 walled DOM. How I bent 2" x .500 wall DOM is beyond me.

What did you use to remove/convert the rust? I am starting to get quite a bit of surface rust on my frame, I want to do something about it soon, but there isn't much sense in just covering it up, if I don't stop it, it'll just come right thru whatever I do to it.
