This will be the build thread for my 1993 two door XJ sport limited edition when I bought it, it had some issues but was taken really good care of by the little old lady who drove it...
Some issues include power steering leak, hard shifting and steering and extremely loud engine noise when at higher rpms

Stock a few days before i bought it

well it is not four wheel drive but its an auto and i have not really investigated yet i dont know what exactly makes it a limited edition it looks like a normal sport model two door with a little emblem around the keyhole that says limited edition plans are to eventually convert to 4wd down the road but right now just make it a capable daily driver able to handle light off roading for the time being

Well that works, i thought the limited edition came with leather or vinyl seats and upgraded interior trim/exterior paint

Default Whoops Not done

Ok so i thought i was done with everything but no... on the inner tie rod for the driver side wheel the end would not accept the nut and the threaded stud was spinning in the end i thought no good but i was late for work thought o it will be ok loose then was on my way not a good idea severe bucking of the steering wheel and real bad vibration so after work spent some money and bought an end and a pickle fork (tie rod end separator) and some other little stuff and replaced it advanced is only like 5 minutes from the house... replaced it and went home still bad vibration only worse well i pull over and start checking it out come to find out several lug nuts are loose and causing the vibration apparently the kids were playing with the lug wrench while i worked on the steering but tightened it all up got home and did an alignment and took her out again and smoother than a babys butt til you get to 65 anybody got an idea what could cause it?
Hers some pics
