Re: Best shocks for lowered WJ + Leaky Dana 44 + Fluids question

Replacing the speed sensors on the 5-45RFE is a very simple job. I would buy only one and replace one of the 2 sensors. Then testdrive it and when no change, replace the other sensor with the first replaced one (which clearly was not at fault). The sensors are kept in place with only one bolt and you won´t loose any fluid when replacing them. I would only recommend to replace them with the tranny cold, to not burn your fingers. Both sensors are mounted on the left side of the tranny, one at the front and one at the rear.

They were a gift from my wonderful gf so I can't explain I told her about my idea of wrapping my jeep in matte black vinyl + installing matte black srt8 rims, and she loved the idea so much that I got matte black srt8 reps for my birthday lol!

Thank you! I'm going to order 2 anyways because the price isn't too much. Do you know what size the bolts were? Is it important to retorque to spec or just use common sense when tightening?

Re: Best shocks for lowered WJ + Leaky Dana 44 + Fluids question

The bolts should be torqued to 105 in.lbs, but with common sense it should be ok (depends on how common your senses are). Each sensor fits into its hole and is sealed by an O-ring, the bolt just keeps it in place. The bolt heads are 8 mm.
But when was your tranny fluid (and filters) replaced? I would do this first before i would start changing any sensor.

Just replaced it under 6 months ago. Tranny fluid was pure red when it came out, and a new filter went in and fluid was topped up

How do you like the ride of the Eibachs? Definitely want to lower mine, but can't decide between Eibachs and H&R Sports. Looks good!
