As I continue on chipping away at the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee I am ready to install the new ball joints and the Iron Rock Off Road U-Joint axles and ditch these cruddy CV shafts. -Enjoy!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars marieromeo hodge says:

    I have a question, in my 2003 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo wj, I just changed my upper and lower tie rod ends and now when I go fast and hot a small bump, my jeep shakes violently and gets worse when I apply my brakes to stop. I can go fast without shaking until I hit a bump. What could be the problem? I think it's the steering damper but I'm not sure or worn bushings in my track bar but again I'm not sure. Can you please steer me in the right direction

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T Green says:

    That JKS quick sway bar disconnet looks like its installed backwards to me!!

    From down here in southern Indiana you talk a little funny too. But that's ok

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dave g says:

    Nice

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Awesome

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Mims says:

    Suggestion: put aftermarket axle seals on. They will keep water and mud, etc out of the tubes, especially since the u-joint axles don't cover off the tube like the cv axles did.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adrian Alfaro says:

    Where did you get those sway bar links with grease nipple

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Shurtz says:

    Could you post a link to those U joint front axles, I tried looking them up but all I could find was CV axles…Oh great viedo, was a lot of help..One of your viewers mentioned a 242 swap..that would be a good one…

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Dagosto says:

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger Sikora says:

    Hello there, what was the number of OTC tool set you were using to change the ball joint, upper ale bushing in Jeep Grand Cherokee wj? I really love your work! Best wishes

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RydzburtonT6 says:

    Do the top joint first, then you can run the threaded part through the bottom hole on the knuckle.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Mcentush says:

    Professional dam you make it look ez,, so I've got one for you, got the iron rock u joint conversion kit myself, the u joints themselves are extremely tight to the point where the bearing house is cracked, the u joints are toasted awaiting iron rock response…

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FXRUPR says:

    Why do you need the spacer between the spindle and bearing hub

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Ortiz says:

    Holy crap biscuit.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Smudgy Content says:

    In Michigan id have to pull rhe lugnuts off the hub bearing then put the wheel back on with couple lug nuts and kick the wheel couple times to break the wheel spacers off the hub… idk how ppl get theirs to fall off all the time… i did check them constantly for the first 500 miles like it says and they never lost tq spec

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Smudgy Content says:

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Bennett says:

    Thanks for the in depth how too. I followed your instructions for freeing off the ball joints; worked like a charm.
    This was on a 2004 WG 2.7 Diesel grand cherokee with the Mercedes 5 cylinder engine. I think you guys had the same engine in the dodge sprinter/freightliner van.

    Speaking of Canadians, one YouTube channel I watch is Joe Robinet – he makes tons of bushcraft videos. He's got that great Canadian dialect.
