Re: AFW frame and drag link adjustment
I was almost afraid to look at your post. Did we let bygones be bygones? COOL! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/applause.gif[/img]
No, before I installed the drag link, I threaded the long portion all the way into the adjuster nut, as far as it would go until the threads reversed. Then I threaded the short end ball joint in and made sure they met in the middle. Then I unscrewed each end, turn for turn, six turns each. I neednít have performed that last step because installed, itís the way it was in the previous step, butt end against butt end.
I might find a new parts store but if, and only if, my parts person moves again. Heís been supplying parts for my Jeep since before I owned it. The Jeepís previous owner told me about him but he didnít work at the same place any longer. I went to a 4x4 salvage yard and found him again there, selling new and used.
Heís the one that got the link cut down for me, all I had was a cutoff wheel or a hacksaw. They had a chop saw to cut it straight. He was concerned and was questioning if he should find a new supplier.
Thanks for the response though. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
