How many miles on your Jeep? I bought mine about a month ago, it had 120k on it but was a southern jeep and had no rust. It felt loose in the front end so I ordered all new suspension components, I went after market HD:
front and rear upper/lower control arms, trak bar, tie rod and drag link, sway links and all new shocks. My wife refused to get in the jeep when I first got it and she loves Jeeps, it was just to damn squirrely, now it feels solid off road and on road.
