Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I've been working with Glenn on his MJ every chance I got and he got. We got stopped dead yesterday when we realized we ordered the wrong front brakes.... Crawl 2019!

Where is Ivy Bluff?

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

The address is listed as Morrison, TN. It's not too far from my house.

The only bad part about this yard is the cars are just set on coarse gravel. It can be a challenge to walk on if you have bad knees. Also, it makes it tough to get anything off the underside of the vehicle. They will come out and prop them up for you to get underneath though.

Weekend is over...what did you get done?

My front passenger side brake caliper stuck a few weeks ago. I rounded up some new pads and rotors and picked up new calipers and brake lines. In my experience with Chryco products, most often the lines fatigue and cause the problems.


I used this SP3 penetrating oil to soak the brake line connections. Broke free nice and easy using a flare wrench.



I got everything done and bled the brakes. Everything worked great. Now my 1994 is back in service.

OK... so i could buy 37s with wheels for $500. I just need rollers anyway to get this thing out of my garage. I'm no where near ready for 37s axle wise. I think I may go ahead and buy them.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I am on my second set or rotors for the mj. the first set was the late model. My mistake. This set is supposed to be for the early brakes. They will not fit over the unit bearing...... WTH!!???
