    Default Some Maintenance I need to cover

    Well while out today I have discovered some maintenance issues I need to address on my jeep.
    Biggest one I need to check out and possible do a full brake job. I am losing peddle and the light comes on and it is pulling when I do brake. I am going to replace the entire front end brake components, to include calipers, when I get new axle shafts (If Larry ever does his axle conversion...LOL) and I will do the rear after that to include wheel bearings. The first thing I need to check is if the Master Cylinder is bad or if it is just low.

    The next issure is the front end pulls and I have a tire kinda leaning so new ball joints are in line, and a good allighnment

    I found a couple bolts missing in the rear leaf springs I need to address.

    And the final issues are mostly electronic. My winshield wipers still don't work, none of the window controllers work except from the drivers side, my blinkers need a resister to make them blink.

    WOW one little wheeling trip and I find tons of needed repairs!!

    Better to find out you need to do the maintenance after a little wheeling trip then to be on a big wheeling trip and have your brakes freeze up, unit bearing break, leaf spring fall off... all in the pouring rain.
    Every time I bring my jeep in to do minor maintenance like fluids or brakes I end up making a list of things I see that need to be replaced/repaired.

    dont forget the locker in the rear end also fred
    and a set of rings to stop the smoke when you lay your jeep on its driver side.

    Would rings stop the smoke? I don't know because if the rings were bad wouldn't it smoke all the time not JUST when its on its drivers side?

    I noticed when you were hard on your brakes on the dirt road your driver's rear would lock up and the passenger didn't.

    I also need to tear apart the passengers side back door and clean/lube it. It gives andrew a hard time, and my mirrors are about to run away. I also have some vibes forming so wheel balancing is in line BUT I'd like to get new tires before then. These are retreads and I don't know how well they will balance. Guess we will see

    no it wouldnt smoke all the time unless you have a bunch of rings bad. all it takes is 1 bad ring then it can allow it to do that on steep angles like you were in (on your side).

    Yea it's been doing that a while. I am going to replace everything in the brakes, calipers, pads, shoes, wheel cylinders, all new rear springs and maybe even new extended lines up front
