    I have 15 dark balls, but only 10 light balls...

    I'm in the process of tapping my steering box for hydro assist on my 99 XJ w/the 4.0. Upon disassembly, I gathered up all of the ball bearings (I was extremely anal about making sure they were contained and that none were lost). I ended up with 15 dark balls, but only 10 silver balls. I should...

    Deaver clearance issues

    After a couple of runs on my new Deaver G9 leaf pack, I've realized there is a clearance issue with the front spring eye and the floorboard above. My springs have "self-clearanced" the floor board (I.e. Pushed floor up) just above the front spring hanger. It's starting to look a little rough and...

    Where are you buying your Deavers

    I'm getting ready to purchase some Deaver G09 leaf springs for the XJ. I did a quick google search and found a few possible dealers, but figured I'd ask the Jeepspeed folks to see if anyone had any suggestions. Input appreciated!

    Comp4x4 Dual Shear Face Mount Tire Carrier Hinge

    I purchased this to build my own tire carrier, welded it to my bumper and started on the carrier. Then my wife told me she bought me a C-Rok carrier for my birthday :D, so I cut this off and now have no use for it. It was welded on, so its not perfect, but I cleaned it up and it is ready to be...

    99, 4.0, aw4, 4x4 I was driving home from the trail today and heard a loud hissing noise, similar to what a tire with a large hole would make. I immediately pulled over and found a few drops of coolant dripping from what appeared to be the radiator. The hissing had stopped at this point, and...
