    These look great! A few quick questions. 1, along the lines of fluid dynamics, more directly, does the shape of the interior mirror that of the stock cover? 2., what is the little black hole below...

    One more question...How the heck do you get 150ft. lbs. of torque on that jam nut? Wow! Is there a torque wrench that can do those kinds of nuts? I've only seen socket-type torque wrenches. If so,...

    Yep, in the Star Case there are new specs. I'm guessing more toe-in along the lines of what Eddie recommended.

    Here is a link. Look at the lines near the top. It is a direct replacement for a Northstar, and is even in the description and link. It also looks like there is a $30 rebate, too, which puts it...

    I bought a Northstar badged as an X2. They are not Odyssey. Batteries Plus will tell you they are Northstars and they come from the Northstar factory. Look at the casing, too, and you can tell. ...

    I've got everything I need, as well, including the cheap cam. I'll probably put it together this summer. I'm going to mount the camera underneath the Jeep so it has a view of the front tires and...

    Yep, the track bar has a new part number and I think the drag link does, as well. There are new alignment specs, as well, which I would bet are similar to what Eddie recommended with the toe-in. ...

    I got a chance to inspect the front suspension and steering components today. Eddie, I think you were spot on with the joint at the pitman arm and drag link. I feel some play there, for sure, when...
