He got 3-4 inches from cranking the t-bars? I really have the wrong suspension.

I mean I like the TTB because it flexes more than the SLA but there is no way I could have fit 35's with just the 4 inch suspension lift.

I'm still in I just need to see if I have a spare yoke for the front diff. The D/S came loose and I took the bolts out to try and clean the threads up and broke a tap off in the bolt hole.

I also need to figure out the popping noise I'm getting when I brake.

I'm working on it. It's just a little hard to do with welders flash.

Although I did get my sliders welded on last night.

U-joints are newish. Installed before our last trip to R/C in Oct. And the radius arm busings are tight and are also newish poly bushings. Probably installed within the last 7-8 months. Thanks for the ideas though.

I'm leaning towards the ball joints at this point. They are a little loose but who knows if they are going to cause the problem.

I don't think I'm going to have the axle fixed in time to wheel the Ranger. I'm gonna try but no promises.

However I would still love to go if some one has room for a passenger.

I loved the one where we were going down the hill and the other Bill had to get on my bumper to keep me from rolling onto the rock.
