Can't go wrong with that. Still didn't answer why the alignment shop said you need a new one, but good luck getting it swapped out. Shouldn't be too big a deal, but I'd definitely recommend using PB...

I've recommended your kits numerous times! Nice work. I'm not much of an artist, but I don't really understand the logo... If this post was put up to solicit feedback.

I see JKS quick disconnects and silver coils which doesn't help much. There are a lot of companies that use silver coils. RC and RE to name a few. What brand are the shocks?

I agree with this. Especially at 4.5" because you should be doing more to do it correctly. You should be able to get like $700 for the lift. Building and driving a lifted jeep is not a cheap...

Your XJ should get half decent mileage. Have you changed the speedo gear for the new tires? If not then your mileage will be reading under actual.

Yes. I run mine at 21 and it rides great, even with short arms. Anything more than 25 is crap for ride quality with my setup. At 33 psi the only way anyone would be falling sleep in my car is by...

One more thing- I would bet on something being too tight rather than loose. Check all 4 control arm bolts in the front, both spring eye bolts in the back, and the U bolts. Over tightening can really...
