I have an 05 stock rubi, had a bit of bad luck yesterday, I hit a wall going about 20 mph! There is no damage to the body as the front right wheel took all of the impact. The right side lower control arm is toast, as is the driver side upper, which was damaged limping home, the drive shaft was rubbing against it.
So......tore everything apart, and as stated the passenger side lower control arm was fubared, the driver side UPC, and also the passenger side lca bracket on the axle was bent up. My questions are:
1. Is the bracket for the passenger side lca on the axle identical to the drivers side, or does it have an offset bent into it? The drivers side is straight pieces, while the passenger side on mine seems to have an offset, or it is also fubared.
2. What is the length of the stock non adjustable track bar (from center of grease fitting to center of mounting hole? When I can manage to pry enough to get the bolt into the axle side, my axle is off by 3 inches! Could it off bent during the impact?
Thanks in advance! I am currently living/working overseas in BFE and there are no jeep dealers or competent front end mechanics, or any mechanics for that matter
