Also there is groaning and squeaking coming from left and right tires making me believe that those joints need replacing too, but I believe the groaning maybe my power steering pump dying on me
I think look at them but make an educated thought if 5 hey are worn or not post some pictures if you can

I have a zone 3" and I did the t case drop. You do not need to get lower control arms but you will need to get the adj trackbar.

GoldenSahara00 If it's totaled, you won't have money to cover all of it though. So it sucks no matter what. And it's still no guarantee once it's been in an accident.

I have the zone 3"

I guess it's a double edged sword. If it comes down to it though, I'd rather have a "totaled" Jeep that I know is rock solid and risk it with the resale/future accidents. Hopefully I won't have to worry about that though.

Is anybody here running Zone lifts? how do y'all like them? I'm thinking of finally replacing my el cheep spacer lift with Zones 3 in. I would at least need some adj lower control arms, wouldn't I?

My Uncle had a CJ that was totaled and never gave him an issue, and seeing as I plan on keeping my Jeep for 10+ years assuming they fix her completely, a blemish on her title doesn't mean as much to me as her condition does. I just want her back already, I'm starting to really hate this rental and it'll probably take them at least another 2 weeks.

She only has 36k miles so it looks like it ranges from 10-13 according to kbb. No clue what the insurance will think though think. I plan on looking her over tomorrow to get a better idea of what needs to be replaced, but I'm guessing the front axle is bent, the transfer case might be damaged from the drive shaft being driven into it at 45 mph, all the control arms are probably tweaked, the bumper and fender need to be replaced, and in the short time I looked at her waiting for the tow truck it almost looked as if the body had been tweaked behind the fender, although it was pretty dark so I'm not too sure about that one. And I'd rather them total her and either buy her back or find another than having to deal with hidden damage coming back to haunt me.
