Before I go and order a new TRE, is there anyway I could tell if it is, in fact, an issue with the TRE? And not just the hole being over sized?

That was my thought exactly. If I'm already removing the knuckle to replace it doesn't seem like much of a leap to do the ball joints while I'm there. Although, at this point I would assume I...

Didn't check for a crack, I'll have to take a look.




Not asking for step by step instructions but how much of a pain is that to replace? I have a feeling that even if it's just the hole...

I would do the Rack first. If you haven't already noticed there is not a lot of storage space in our Wranglers. I did the lift first and you usually wind up opening a can of works with a lift. Get...
