You can get a pump that will fit right on the top of most oil containers. no mess!

One way to find shavings is to stick a magnet down in your old oil containers and swish it around.

I just used 2 to 3 feet of irrigation line and used electrical tape to attach it to a funnel. Makes life a lot easier but global the last quart its better by hand

My crunching is only after its hot. If I drove from my house to work no sounds, it's when I drive from my house to the bf ( 45 mins ) that's when it makes fun sounds. I keep my windows closed ( tinted super dark ) an I turn up my music, and when I get ask what the sound is I just say its normal and that my blackbetty is a one of a kind hahaha

Pulled the diff cover off today, my gears are fine no teeth missing, had a tiny groove in one but they were able to fix it and changed the fluids, seems to be much smoother driving period. And not as much as an obnoxious crunch when I turn, just a very small sound. So next is the clutch!! Thanks every one !

From your jeep picture you might want to change all the fluids in your Jeep.
It looks like you have been doing some fun mudding so check all your vent lines on both diffs and transmission and transfer case to make sure they are good and mount high enough to keep it out of the water and mud.

It's been awhile since Iv had any problems. But I'm looking for new rear shocks- I have ronchos on there now they are only a year old and have snapped from the frame again. I replaced them just over a year ago and my passenger rear has snapped again.
What are your suggestions on shocks. I just don't want to be replacing them once a year all I really do is city driving. Not a whole lot of off roadin right now I shouldn't having this problem. ... Any suggestions ?

Your problem isn't with the shocks, it is with improper bumpstops causing your shocks to bottom out.

Seems to me you are exactly as mentally challenged as "some". Hopefully your mechanic friend has a lot more sense than you do.

love how some people just have to be asses...

Anyway, your shock problem is probably due to bump stop length. The bump stop must stop the up travel of the axle. When the bump stop is too short the shock bottoms out and either the shock will eventually break or the mount at the frame or axle will. Depending on lift height, typically you do not want more than about 4 1/2" to 5" of space between the top of the REAR spring cup and the bump stop when the vehicle is sitting level.

My bad, let me turn on my "OMG There is a girl on the internet" charm.

Totes, rolling up the windows and slamming a new CD in at full volume to drown out the noise is a super smart idea!! We should all do that and just drive until the rear end explodes while we are traveling down the interstate at 70+ MPH.


Ok, Personally I'm a HUGE fan of Greenday. Get one of their CDs and crank it up.

Is that better for your bleeding heart?

You get online, say you aren't a moron then subdue your statement with actions and you expect that everyone should still offer up sound advice that you won't follow (note - "you" in this case would be OP, not "YOU", though you did call me an ass ). Yeah, I'll get right on that.

First off I didn't call u an ass. Thanks for comin out big guy I asked a sine question to somebody who may be able to answer it or have some insight on how to fix my problem- I no it's the clamps I was simply asking if somebody else had a preferred shock as to the ranchos.
As for the guys that gave me a half decent answer thank you. I do appreciate it and hopefully that will fix my problem
