Do you have a bolt extractor set? You can use that to get a purchase on it and simultaneously twist/pull it out. It's a tapered, left threaded shaft so it bites progressively as it engages.

Thanks! yea that does look different, but the angle of UCA tube coming into the mounting 'plate' looks identical to how I have mine installed, I don't think that was the issue. I did a bit of reading about on the Moog ball joint (Part# K6292), and came to the conclusion that the rubber boot is not designed to be 'sealed' against the ball joint body, it is meant to sit at the bottom and keep out dust and keep the grease inside. The previous one I had that came with the JBA was different. I think the Raybestos one comes from the factory sealed to the body, just a different design I guess.

Well glad that one is resolved!

Now I can focus on getting those SRT sways

I have done it like 4 times now and I can get it removed and replaced in an hour. The hardest part is putting in the stupid bolts on the egr tube in without dropping them, kinda nerve racking. Luckily I have now eliminated mine

So dont know how to undo the fuel line or where the brake booster is. Anyone care to share their wisdom? Besides that everything else is done

The fuel line is a pressure fitting that requires a special tool that reaches into the fitting and releases the retaining springs. It's a cheap set but paramount to this job. There's an o-ring in the fuel line that is somewhat fragile so be careful not to disturb it in the process. I can upload pics in a bit if you'd like. The booster is on the firewall directly in front of driver, (it's a big metal round can that the master cylinder is attached to) but you don't remove the actual booster, just the vacuum line that feeds it, just follow the large hose from booster to intake and dcon at the union.

Yup you need a fuel line quick disconnect tool (the yellow one). Rkirk there is no o-ring on ours it is just a press fit.

Also in a pinch I have done it by keeping the fuel line attached and just removing the bolts from the fuel rail and pulling out the rails with the injectors and setting them aside. Also it is essential that you bleed the fuel system first.

Remove the fuel pump fuse and then remove the gas cap. Start the jeep until it stalls out. Try cranking it again and make sure it doesn't fire. Then remove one of the injector connectors hook up some alligator clips to it and touch it to the battery for a second or so. I usually skip the step of hooking the injector up to the battery and just have a rag ready.

My guess is because they couldnt get the plastic rivets in because with the srt bumper the holes dont line up. I drilled new ones.

Well actually I was wrong they didn't mess with it. That is actually the effect of the tire rubbing against it. Since there was no front bumper the wind pushed it into the tire causing it to rub like a mofo. I will be replacing it from rock auto. The proper way to address the issue of the holes is to buy the plastic extension.
