I called Leonard today, and from my description, he seems to think the track bar is bent. That would also explain the track bar rubbing on the diff cover. He is going to look at it Wednesday.

I've never met Leonard but have heard a lot of good things about him from many people. I'm sure he will figure it out. Keep us posted on the outcome.

Leonard is Jeep specific, he knows his stuff and runs an honest shop.

I think you will make it just fine however, your rocker protection will be put to use. See you all in the morning.

Glad you made it, I think everyone had a good time. I have some pics and a couple videos I'll post up.

We ran Firebreak 5, Airplane hill, Hogs back hill climb, Rocky uphill and ran it downhill, couple easy ones in Archers and Waterfall.

Here's me on the exit filter of Airplane hill. I sprayed the hell out of my control arm bushings with pblaster to shut them up. I guess it didn't work

Ken, now you have balanced the Jeep, popping the bead on both front tires :-)

Looks like you all had a good time! Sigh!
