    Pucks work great! I had to buy a bag of them because no one sold them locally. I've still got some left... PM me your address and I'll send you a couple.

    Ok guys next puzzle to figure out.

    First off I bought new timkin wheel bearings and the wheel speed censor lines are like 8" shorter than the stock ones.... So the question is can I re use the stock wheel censor lines? I need to cycle the suspension again to see if the new ones are too short but they already look like they will be too short, do they make extensions for the wheel speed censor lines?

    Next one is the hydro assist bracket that came with the pr44 I ordered. The trail leader package pr44 unlimited comes with the raised track bar bracket and integrated hydro assist mount but that mount is hitting my drag link and I'm not too sure what to do about it.
    I have no future plans as of right now to do a hydro assist steering but I would hate to cut the bracket off if I don't need to. Any ideas?

    I would just re-use the old ones myself as long as sensor isn't broken. Also, there's only two wires in there, so they're very easy to splice and seal if you had to lengthen it. Regardless of which ones you use, when you button up the install, make sure and cycle the axle again to ensure ALL hoses and lines have plenty of slack (abs, brake hoses, breather tube, air locker line, etc).

    Likely it was built that way assuming the drag link would be flipped (because of the raised track bar bracket). You could do that but I think your lift height is too low. Other option if you don't want to cut the bracket would be adjust the steering stops so the wheels stop during a turn before the drag link hits that bracket, that will likely make your turning radius shorter on right turns though.

    My old wheel speed censor worked just fine so my gut feeling was to just use the old one I just didn't know if the old one would work in the new bearing but I haven't tried yet. I was pretty surprised to see the new one was so much shorter. Reading Eddie's write up on the replacement he used the new one and it looks fine but mine looks real short.

    When you pull the new sensor out of the bearing, just match it up to the old one and make sure they look exactly the same. You should be fine though.

    Yeah there is no way I would want to flip the drag link at 1" of lift, it's funny because when I turn the wheel full left it slides right in between the bracket and doesn't hang up but I'm sure the second I try to cycle the suspension with a full left turn it's going to be an issue, I don't really want to loose that much turn radius but I need to get the tire on it and actually see what I'm working with before I make that call

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
