    Which would you rather have stock plastic fender coming off(easy to put back on) or body pushed in?

    No problem.
    This is why I cut my fenders on this Jeep and my JK before it.
    Also, aftermarket fenders have a limited selection.
    I'm gonna do a rig walk around video soon.

    E Brake Cable

    I will installing EVO Coilovers this week. I have a concern on the re-routing of the E brake cable in the rear.
    How do you disconnect it at the axel/ brake drum to re-route? I admit I have not crawled underneath the Jeep JL to look. Do I need a special brake tool? If so what?
    Just trying to get my ducks in a row before I start
    Thanks
    Randy

    Pretty sure unhooking and rerouting the e-brake cables is the least technical part of the job... Synergy lists the install of their reroute cable bracket as a 15 minute job, here is their explanation:

    Clunking noise with EVO coilovers

    I had the EVO coilovers installed on my 2018 JL Unlimited Rubicon. I love the look and ride, but the sliders do not slide smoothly on the shock body. They seem to catch and clunk suddenly. Not a smooth slide up and down with spring compression. The secondary coil nut is set about 1/2Ē from the slider as instructed. Any thoughts? Will this get better with wear?. I only have about 75 miles on them. No off road yet. Most of the noise seems to be with the right rear. It is heard when i corner quickly or hit a small bump, ie upon spring compression.
