so I finally completed a two-months-long replacement project. Replaced the sagging stock leafs on my '95 4.0L with Pro-Comp, just about the cheapest kit I could find (college student budget). The Jeep stands tall and proud once more.
By the way, since the spring bolts fused to the sheaths inside all eight bushings, I had to cut through them. That was what took so long, since I'm working with a floor lift from Jiffy Lube that is only available Sundays after 4pm. I tried several times to cut the bolts with a sawzall, and it really isn't effective. A 3-inch pneumatic cut-off wheel costs twenty bucks with a ten-pack of blades and takes care of the job in minutes, instead of hours. Go with that, not a reciprocating saw.
So, here's the new issue:
Manual transmission. When I start moving, either forward or reverse, I hear a loud clunk from what sounds like the rear driveline, as soon as I engage the clutch. It also happens when I engine brake. It started happening immediately after I did the lift. Can anyone tell me what's going on, and how to fix it?
