  • U bolt change

    I am changing them out on all the springs..is there anything funny about the swap I should know or a tip..ie jackstands on the axle or suspended from a lift, or can I do it right on the pavemant?

    Just my opinion, anytime the vehicle is on a jack you should have stands under it. The stands should be on the frame so you are not trying to lift up on the axle housing. The way I would do it if you are just changing them is remove one and replace it before you remove the other that way theres no chance of it moving and you wont have to worry about ligning the pin up. Just my .02 worth.

      If you plan on having the jeep fixed by this weekend give me a call. Look for my number on your meet and greet post

        Plan on using a grinder and cutoff wheel. If you try to wrench em off it will take forever. The threads are mfr'd with an interference fit so they are tough to wrench off. Inspect your spring perches. Mine were rusted through and had to be replaced. The original design (in 78 anyway) captured dirt and water and held it there. Never understood why they designed it this way.
