    Looking to purchase, need advice

    Building a Brute

    I second that. I hate to say it, but I strongly dislike the look of the 4 door jeeps. To me it just looks ugly. Schlap, nice jeep.(y)

    Disc brakes locked up

    I've also heard of it happening when someone replaces the mc and they got a shaft (goes between mc and booster). If the shaft is a hair too long, the brake fluid expands and the front brakes drag. Simular to Kane's answer.

    Master Cylinder Rebuild

    Sounds like the proportionate valve may be clogged (portion going to rear brakes). I was thinking along the same line as you. Loosen the rear brake line (from M/C at the valve) and see if you can get it to bleed at the in part of the valve. If that works try loosening the brake line at the...

    Bilstein shock tech support phone #

    Thank you. I went through their web site and didn't see that page. Hoping to talk to the tech guys to see if they have a shock that would work. If not I'll end up making mounts to use the smaller shock towers.

    Belt Squeal and Alignment
