Help!

I'm in the process of putting my 1.25 inch body lift on. Directions say to take out the steering shaft carrier bearing bolts out that hold it to the frame. I got the side one out but that top one won't move! Any tricks? Not much room to play with. Yes I sprayed it

Are you talking about the transfer case linkage bolts on the drivers side tunnel? If so, they are notorious for spinning and you may need to hold the bushing underneath with visegrips to remove.

It's the zone 4.25 combo lift. It comes with some kind of Bracket to go back in there. And no this is directly under the steering shaft. I ended up getting it. But those bolts in the drivers side floor were hard to get. We ended up cuttin one off.

yeah, I've installed that same lift and I don't remember ever messing with steering. The only things up front that we had to do was one body mount and the grill supports.

That's what he was referring to, adding a spacer to steering carrier bearing..I did it on mine but luckily that part gave me no trouble.

That new since I did a friends back in July. I see the shout that out on the website now. My JKS didn't use one either. I wonder if there's any real reason for it.

Mine has been fine for about 18 months now. I'll check later to see if JKS added that into their kit.

I just checked JKS, they still don't use them. Strange.

Bill, your Jeep is just possessed. How'd that fluid change go?

It went well. Radiator was the most difficult an I am still slowly topping it off. Diffs and TC were easy peezy.
