Thanks! I've been using the edge of the tire thread because it's a sharp corner. It's a relative number as long as it's the same spot front and back. Thanks for the number I'm shooting for.

1991 XJ Limited - Project "It's About Time"

I'm fixing to replace the UCA bushings on the axle. Why is one bushing (passenger side) fully pressed into the axle but the other (drivers) is only partially pressed in? Is this for alignment of the arm?

You can see in this picture how it's not fully pressed in. It's like that on all axles that I've seen.

Read somewhere that the drivers side boss is a smaller ID so the bushing only presses in but so far. All good.

A little progress today: I was able to get the alignment done. I'm about an eighth toe in which is indistinguishable to the eye. The camber problem seems to have gone away. Must've been an optical illusion. I also adjusted the steering wheel alignment so it's nice to not be driving with the steering wheel upside down.

Learned something new: don't try to adjust the drag link if your steering wheel is locked. You're definitely not going to get anywhere.

My brain didn't click until I maxed out the adjuster and I was pushing my passenger side wheel toe out...

The guys at the tire shop are wondering if the 285/75's will fit

If not I brought tools to take the flares off.

33's will fit but you just can't fully stuff them. Driving around town will give you no issue at all.

The plan for the future is bushwacker flat flares and 305/70's bit this will get me through the winter

The RE leafs and springs are STIFF. Barely any change with the weight of the jeep on them from a tire clearance perspective.

They're the 16" Moabs from the Rubicon wranglers. 03-06 I believe.

Header panel swap. Honestly not quite as clean of a swap as a lot of people say. There are some strange snags but everything is workable. I have some touching up to do but it's done. Also, pardon the missing fog light. The car wash stole it.

Ripped out the old Bendix 9 system and replaced with a simple booster from a 95. Required the pedal to be swapped as well. Night and day difference.
