Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

Must say, this is becoming more of a WK/XK/his/hers build thread lol. Today got around to replacing the squeeky wobbly water pump and peeling the plastidip off her XK's grill(she wasn't a big fan). For those who ever need to replace a water pump on a 5.7 it's much like that of the 4.7, attatched pulley and formed rubber seal, no RTV needed. Also the '05 FSM talks about removing the A/C compressor and moving it and the lines out of the way, no need. It sneaks right past the lines.


new Mopar replacement(made in good ol Korea!)

installed and coolant bled

Peeling the plastidip!

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

Just got all my goodies from Rusty's to finish the lift. If you'll notice their rear puck that they advertise as 2" is actually 1 9/16" thick where the coil will actually sit. This will actually work out better since I was planning on cutting the 2" down to 1.5". Now I'll just run the spacer w/out the rubber seat on the top since the spacer has a coil seat built into it. Will be running two .25" spacers up front, longer sway bar links in the rear, JKS quicker disco's up front, and an adjustable trac-bar to help center the rear axle(as it sits w/just the OME HD it's shifted towards the drivers side maybe .25". Will post pics after install.

can those be swapped without removing the spring/strut assembly? and are those adjustable for caster and camber?

Yes they can be removed/installed without removing the strut assembly. Although if you have the OME lift you may have to undo the top strut bolts, lower the lower control arm, and swing the assembly out so the bolts will clear the spring.

Non-adjustable. I know without them there would be no way they could get my camber just right though.
