I'm trying to adjust the toe-in and it appears it has not been adjusted in so long they are seized up. I've sprayed them, tapped them with the hammer...wont budge. And no, I didn't hit any threads. And on another note, no dealers in town have the adjustable cam bolts in stock. And on another note, I got a bad case of DW going 55 and the right tire hit a small bump and away we went.
I did. I put a lot into it and still wouldn't budge. I didn't really think it would, but I was concerned the link would break if I stepped on the pipe wrench and put my weight into it. I guess I'll DW my way to work tomorrow and hopefully the local 4x4 shop will be open. Make me even more broke.
Whew, finally! I picked up some penetrating fluid yesterday on the way home from work. Sprayed it good last night. Put a little extra ass into it today and it finally gave. Did 2 full turns of the tie rod and now it drive so much better. Tried to cause DW but it wouldn't do it.
Now, you guys who have messed with lower control arms tell me this. On the factory lca's the bolts are 15 3/4" center to center. I'm looking at picking up a pair of Superflex fixed lowers that are 16". Pushes the bottom of the axle 1/4" forward. Will I benefit here? That and the adjustable track bar will hopefully have my front end like I want it for the time being. Thanks
04 Sahara, with a lift, some stuff, and a few things, on some 33's, blah, blah, blah.
A perpetual work in progress. Too much to list, not nearly enough to matter.
