Took the suspension out only to find I bought the wrong parts.

Yep. I ordered the replacement spring bushings and bolts for my 91 and got to work this morning. Had the springs out only to discover that they are aftermarket 2" lift ones that have 1.5" ID ends. The replacement bushings were the wrong size. I'll be sending those back and ordering new ones this week.

Whole lot of work done considering nothing actually got accomplished.

I've put out a contract on Murphy but no one has picked up on it yet.
I'd offer a bigger amount for the hit but I spent most of my spare dough on the Jeep.

Does anyone want to contribute? I'll start a go fund me page. Look for the title "Hit on Murphy".

Good Luck, L.M.
