    Post-Silver Lakes - is Gear Oil Replacement Necessary?

    Hey guys, I had a great time at Silver Lakes and the highlight was meeting you all. I got back home, unloaded and slept and then got back in the drivers seat. I was on my way to auto-body class one evening and my driveshaft hit the pavement. One of the strap bolts that holds it to the Dana...

    Not sure this is a CJ steering column

    That isn't much of a bearing! I got mine out pretty easily and noticed it is missing two or four roller bearings. I ordered a Crown kit so I'll just wait patiently for it to arrive.

    Not sure this is a CJ steering column

    Well it was originally a manual transmission Jeep but the PO put in a 350/TB350 combo back in the 90's. I have no idea if maybe he put in this column thinking he'd use a column shift, but it is a floor shifter for the auto trans. Weird! I cannot get the sleeve to move; it is very stationary...

    Hey guys, I was going to put in the Wolf Eng. lower steering shaft bearing in today, along with a new Borgeson steering shaft and low and behold o_O my steering column has an extra sleeve inside between the outer sleeve and the steering shaft.

    What to do?

    Having just put new YJ springs and new-to-me axles that I had to piece together out of three sets I'd say if you can swing it, get new axles from one of the axle companies. Axles suck to deal with, in my humble opinion. There are so many other things that you'll have to work on. I happen to...

    SSBC Drum to Disk Conversion - A-130 / A-132

    Hey Guys, I am posting to provide some info that might help others with SSBC brake conversions on an AMC 20 axle. As you may or may not be aware, SSBC went bankrupt and has now come back. I bought my CJ-8 from the original owner who did a TON of work to it some 20 years ago or more. One of...
