First of all, your angles are probably VERY off.  Center your axle with the lowers and then fix your caster with the upper control arms.  Once this is done if you still have clearance issues with the drag link, place the drag link in a press and push out the angle a little more basically moving the TRE away from the link.  This will also help with the Tie Rod to Diff clearance you get with some of the more bulky covers.

I have an extra one off a 2000 XJ you could try. Pretty sure they were the same. I'd like to hold on to it as a spare but your welcome to use it to diagnose the issue.

 I may take you up on that, and scoot over to Tom's to hook up the coil pack and his OBD scanner to test it.

While you had the plugs out you should have checked the compression

I don't have a tester.  We'll have to schedule some diagnostic time at your place.  :smile:

Not directly to the Jeep, but I used Jeep parts to do it! Horse shoe pits using d35 axle shafts as the stakes. We will be Doug backboards at a later date.

Drove it to the property and discovered both rear calipers are frozen! :swear_mad: :swear_mad:

I used to avoid this by using my compressor to blow out all of the dirt around them after a muddy trail ride. :swear_mad: :swear_mad: :swear_mad: :swear_mad: :swear_mad:

Can't wait to get my shop and my compressor setup! :swear_mad: :swear_mad: :swear_mad:

With RedJeepster's assistance, confirmed the track bar mount isn't ovaled out (may have been in the past since there was already a washer welded there!), found a little play in inthe steering box output shaft.  Put the top back up (Really quick and easy on a TJ!)
