    Yep, mostly just in the rear. Kind of annoying but it's only really noticeable with a full tank. Debated putting a small shim or spacer on that side to even it out but haven't committed to that idea yet.

    Most aftermarket suspensions account for this. Even my cheapo leafs have different packs for drivers vs. passenger. Actually I think the drivers rear sits a tad higher than the passenger even with a full tank. Maybe a few years from now I wont be able to tell.

    Nice! It’s a good bumper and I think it matches my Addicted front bumper pretty well. I’m going to pull the trigger on one of these soon, though. Much better clearance, and I really like how the cut edge of the bedside is covered by the bumper wings.

    Given the amount of bearing material in the oil, and the new vibe at idle, I think it's time.

    The little clear plastic one is a pita to install. I didnt even install the one in the 92. The dealer did the bushings in my 04 with the parts I gave them so who knows if it actually got done lol.

    Something about them going inside the drive shaft. Will need to look them up.

    Maybe I’ll forego it, it’s just sometimes you can’t shift it into 1st smoothly. Takes some time to find it. Other times it shifts like butter.

    My 04 lost its ability to hold 4th or 3rd rather suddenly. Going down the road and horrendous grinding sounds came out of nowhere as the shifter popped out of gear. Then I couldnt get the shifter in all the way anymore.

    I tried my hardest to replace it myself, as the one in the 92 was easy. But for some reason, I couldnt get the shifter cap off no matter how hard I tried. Could not get it to press down enough as I assume some of the old bushing was caught under it. Gave up after an hour of trying and took it in to the dealer.

    Yeah that doesn’t sound fun haha. I guess I’ll leave it alone. It shifts fine, it’s just there’s that occasional time it doesn’t.

    Try and see if you can get the cap off since youve got the trim off already. If you can its in easy job. Press down and turn.

    Off with the old LBJs.

    upload_2019-8-16_20-18-3.jpg

    Knuckles off. Upper BJs removed.

    I'll drop off the knuckles and new wheel bearings at my favorite shop tomorrow and give them some cash to press in the new bearings and install the seals.
