    After the Ring and Pinion rebuild, rear axle is spewing the diff fluid up the breather tube if I drive at 70 and above. Though it was overflow, drove to Panama City and back and found the the pumpkin only had a quart left so change the fluid and took it back to the shop for them to check what the hell is going on.

    So I found this during a tire rotation today. Looks like the right rear sway bar link bolt has rubbed/is rubbing on the tire. Also looks like its making contact with the brake line in 2 places. Also looks like the sway bar shifted towards driver side for some reason. Should an adjustable rear track bar fix this? Should I get shorter links? Thanks.

    Yup. That little black slug in the pic looks like grease but its actually rubber from the joint.

    Are you sure? I find it hard to believe the rubber would push out like that before the grease. Take the arm off and inspect.

    Yup. 100% positive. Grease may have been coming out beforehand but I was distracted and kept pumping until I heard a pop. Total dumbass move. 4 rebuild kits and Currie rebuild tool on order. Well see how it goes.

    What problems does your Jeep have this week?

    Has anyone added the greaseable bolts Currie offers? Or rebuilt with this kit?

    Damn thing with Johnny joints is that they are like king shocks. Expensive as fuck. And just as expensive to service or rebuild. After buying the kits, install tool, misc crap you could just buy brand new joints. lol

    Do you have to buy the rebuild kit with the hole in the sleeve to use a greasable bolt or are all the Johnny joints made with the hole in the center?

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive 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.
