Might as well

Sounds like I’m late. You should be hammering that thing back with the bolt in for the exact reason you found out haha
Thought about putting the bolt in but the hammering wasn't the issue. The bolt went back in after the hammering, it was when I tried to force it to catch with the lower shock mount at a fucked up angle.

Shit I've been busy and missed a lot.
:evilgrin::beerscheers: Hell Yea!
Well fuck ADS once again. They sent me the wrong misalignment spacers. Fortunately the icon ones will work for now and we're working on getting me the correct ads ones.

Icon misalignment = 40mm
ADS misalignment = 42mm

I was going to make it work, but I'm doing more damage than progress.
Fuck Dammit ADS. glad you figure out a solution.
Christ it keeps getting better and better. Something not right here. :doh:

Passenger side rear shock bushings are shot but the shock itself is fine. Driver side is fine. Fronts are in good shape sans the misalignment spacers but I should have those from ADS this week. I'll clean them up next weekend and shoot you pics.

good deal I'm not to worried about the rears as I'll be running something else it's mainly the front's. I'm just blown away how bent that is. Do you have a fix in mind?

Oh, the fronts are in great shape aside from the misalignment spacers, hahahah. Unless @eimkeith can come up with the new shock mounts within the next 2 weeks (and it sounds like he's far too busy for that happen) I'll probably just pick up a new axle from a junk yard and swap my 3rd into it. Be a good chance to pull my 3rd and inspect the gears/locker anyway.

Gay. They had a 4WD 4th gen when I texted you and asked you if you wanted some spare CV's. I guess that was a while ago
Yeah, pretty much. There's one about 20 miles away for 600, I'll give them a call. @Itaro said he'd buy the 3rd to send to ECGS as a core so his rig won't be down when he regears (he'll still have to send the front back but that cuts the core charge in half at least) and I guess it never hurts to have spare axle shafts.

Kick ass can't wait! Gotcha, that would be nice if that happens but your plan is a good one too. I've been trying to get a hold of just a axle housing to do my 07 fj 3rd member swap in to but everyone wants so much for them.
