Only downside is my wife works nights, so I do the daddy daycare thing, meaning I usually can't play until they go down around 8 pm. If you have a bigger job, we can do a whole day Saturday or Sunday.

Where's CT Axle?

edit: Just read the posts that came up as I was typing, MikalCarbine you are certainly welcome as well. With three or four pairs of hands we can screw stuff up, figure it out, and then fix it all again that much faster!

LCA's are stupid easy seriously.

Sueby I'm in awe of how awesome you guys are! I'm waiting on a call from the ex who is a mechanic & happens to owe me a favor. Always gotta wonder if I'll end up regretting going there.

I did have the bolts on order but cancelled them in a moment of panic. I was just picturing the 'oh you dumb girl' attitude I'd get when trying to explain it to the dealer so I panicked and cancelled them! Lol

Maybe I'll have the ex do the lca's for now, re-order the bolts & the ace rock sliders I want, find out what you guys like to eat & drink, cook up a bunch of it and take you up on your offer.

Jeep people rock.

kjeeper10 Same here .... Let us/me know.

I sent a pm to Glue. He's got the garage and his/my tools.

Depending on what needs to be down also.

For LCA 's , basic socket set/breaker bar/opened-box wrench, and torque wrench.
And some muscle for 125 ft lbs

Also have you looked into the F911 bolt upgrade kit for LCA's TB's?

Safe assurance for DW

Sueby Oh my God you guys are so awesome! I can't believe you'd all offer to help, that is so cool!
03-03-2012 11:42 AM
MikalCarbine Ya LCAs are pie, I have a garage and most of the tools you'd ever need. I'm in Bloomfield and I'm more than willing to help you out and teach you

LCA's are super easy.... 1/2 hour.

You see my most recent post?

kjeeper10 What's up?

We up for wrenching

MikalCarbine I've been dealing with CTAxle for a few things, they do almost "anything" but specialize in axles, what do you need done?
03-03-2012 08:00 AM
Sueby Well thats a bummer. It is surprising.

I think I'll give this guy in manchester a shot & see. When I walked in his shop last week he had some old Monte Carlo on the lift with big ass bicycle wheel looking things on it. They had to be like 20's! It scared me. :o

wedu22 Sorry to say it but "no, I do not". Actually, Extreme Vehicle Builders in Danbury is about the only one I hear any of the CT Jeepers talk about. Kind of odd that there really are not any 4x4 specific shops around us.
03-02-2012 06:36 AM
Sueby Anyone know of a mechanic/shop that knows Jeeps in the central part of CT?

There is a place in Manchester that I checked out called 4x4 Performance but he said he's never worked on a JK.

Thanks my fellow CT Jeep peeps!
