I need to check the torque of the throttle body and control arms...I need to know what the specs are too..I need to get a decent torque wrench....any recommendations? Looking for one that sets and clicks....Like the Norbar pro but out of my price range. The jeep isn't diving at stops...I don't know what rating my current springs are...Just under 30k miles...

seanpmcd thanks...Any reasonable brand of Shocks and Springs you can recommend? I think there are differences in rubi and saharas suspensions...will whatever brands you recommend fit the stock sahara?

Jeep Suspension

I have a 2008 JK 4DR and I am looking to do a hands on(reason I came here in the first place) redo of the suspension. I am not getting the death wobble(had that in my previous Jeep) but she feels loose and a little rattle when hitting some harder spots. I want it to feel like it did on day one again. Everything is stock and nothing underneath has been replaced thus far. I would appreciate recommendations, suggestions, etc...Thanks and I can't afford to get too pricey!
