BJ Install

In an effort to:
A) Be pre-emptive.
B) Stimulate the economy.
C) Lighten my wallet.
D) Spend time wrenching on my Jeep.
E) All of the above. LOL

I installed Sysnergy Suspension ball joints on the driver's side today. Didn't have time to do the passenger side. Gives me something to look forward to for next weekend.

Is anyone interested in a write up or How To? I took some pics and will be happy to share.

Speaking of write ups, is there a standard format used here on WF or is it left up to the member?

Bring it...it'll help somebody, pretty much guaranteed.

The format is straight iambic pentameter, with the occasional colorful curse word thrown in to break up the established rhythm.

Or just wing it.

I bought a 4wd press from Harbor Freight, it has some extra adapters not included in the one from Auto Zone. Just got done installing mine, put in the Synergy and may be interested in selling the press, lets hope I won't need it again anytime soon!

Hang on to it. I think I have used mine a half dozen times already. I am the new best friend in the hood.

I thought about keping mine that I bought, wasn't too expensive and can be used for U-Joints as well. I don't know of anyone around me that is needing it. Maybe we should start a sticky thread that people can post their location and the different tools that they have for loan or sale. Kind of a tool network type thing.

Haha.

We joked about the spacers I am "temporally" using until I buy new wheels.
