My jeep is an 05 wrangler with a 4.0 and im doing the rear main seal in it today and I got the oil pan off and come to find, a peace of steal bridging the bearing caps (stabilizer maybe?) and there are nuts holding it to the caps that have cuts on the tops to help keep them tight I guess? kinda like a nylon nut?. the caps are held on back the bolt underneath (see pics). does anyone know what this is and the torgue spec on the bottom nuts??? can I reinstall them?? have never seen one like this. thanks so much Jake
this is a pic of the steal running down the caps
this is the bolt, with the nut under it
bearing cap bolt, steal, nut
tried to get the markings on the nut hard to see
thank you guys!
