I moved away for a couple of year and left my XJ stored at the in laws house. I am now back and have access to my XJ again. I am in the process of having a house built, but I should be able to pick up where I left off when my new home and garage are completed in a few months.

Well......ended up having get my cherokee from the inlaws house much sooner than I thought. I now have it over at the rental place for now with me. I went, dumped about a gallon of gas in it, threw a new rural king battery in it, and she fired up on the first turn of the key. Hasnt been started or moved in a couple to 3 years now. Was surprised to see that.




Anyway, since I had it over here and was bored, I decided I might as well go ahead and throw the ZJ tie rod in the front. Ive had it just sitting around forever. Got it put in, now I just need to adjust the size of it. The stupid adjustment sleeve nuts rounded off, so Im gonna have to try to get those off and some new nuts. Oh well.




Next plans are the toss the rear blocks out, and do a bastard pack on the rear. Searching currently for some S10 leafs to save the day.




Oh well...here are pics of the ZJ rod.

Did you ever fix your squeaking issue? I had one that I thought was the exhaust as well. It turned out to be the bracket that holds up the tail pipe rubbing against my lead spring. I put a touch of grease in there and haven’t heard it in months.

I have not. But im pretty sure its just my rusty rear suspension the more I look at it. The leafs are rusty, the block is rusty, everything suspension is rusty. I am in the process of finding some leafs to make a leaf pack to replace a lot of the stuff back there.
