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.
 (the one I picked up doesn't show Misfires in real time like Tom's does)

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.
