(June 11, 2014, Montclair, CA)

We tackled the rear next. The rear axle was assembled and put into place while we waited for the rear BONZI YJ Springs to arrive. When we went to mount them we found the right rear shackle mount was bent and needed straightened. It ended up being a test of how strong the new shackles are. We installed the new bushings and shackle then took a Hi-lift and supported across the other side of the frame and cranked the jack. It took a lot pressure to get it aligned. The shackle didn't even know we were cranking on it.

The existing rock sliders interfered with the mounts to relocated the attachment point of the spring on the frame. A little love from a hand grinder made it possible to mount them.

After everything was attached we bleed the brakes and took it out for a spin on a 30° ramp at Pomona Gear. We were able to sit on top @ 29"! Even better is the highway performance. No more wonder, bump steer or high speed wobbles. All 100% gone!
