In this video I ditch the OEM bushing in the upper portion of the axle that failed after less that one hundred miles and install the Iron Rock Off Road Flex joint. It is 1000 times better than the factory rubber bushing and it actually stays in the housing!! -Enjoy!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lastrealjeep says:

    Will that bushing from Iron Rock also fit the left side of the front axle?

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy f says:

    With the oem bushings…. if you tighten the bolts with the suspension in droop it'll tear the bushings at ride height. Keeps it under constant tension unless it's all full droop where you tightened it

    What happened to this WJ. Is this a good setup that you can recommend. I’m looking to get a long arm setup for mine and am torn between IRO and Clayton. How is the 3 link working for you? Would this setup make for a good daily driver?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Pickering says:

    Would you not ensure that the tube slips inside the cup before you start the pressing process

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    I would have used spot welds.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Montevallo Mustang says:

    Do you have a part number for this thanks

    Little tip on bushing and ball joint type installs. Leave them in freezer overnight or you can use liquid nitrogen and bring them up to acceptable install temp.

    Funny how they offer upgrades like this when the kit should just come with it.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Douglas Beary says:

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Amaral says:

    YOUR JEEP NEEDS A TRACK BAR RELOCATION BRACKET SO THE TRACK BAR RUNS PARAELL WITH THE TIE ROD RUNNING TO THE PASSENGER WHEEL. THE TRACK BAR SHOULD NOT CROSS OVER THE TIE ROD AS YOUR IS DOING.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Carpenter says:

    IRO WJ 4" Long front and rear. – I was hearing knock from the front that I couldn't figure out. I kept checking, but everything felt tight. It would knock when I first hit a bump, then nothing for the rest of the bumps. Finnaly found the bushing poped out this AM while test fitting the new Method 703's. 😃
    I installed a new OEM bushing, when I installed the lift, like you I was surprised to see it pulled out of the seat. I got 2 new aftermarket bushings one for now a the other for later, but now that I know what the problem is, I'll be calling IRO in the AM.

    Note on the Method 703's. The +25 offset looks like its going to fit the WJ pretty good. The valve stem is in a much better place than the 0 offset. I sent the 0 offset wheels back.

    Thank you so much!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Robins says:

    Nice fix. Appears to be way more substantial than the OEM

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Effay513 says:

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Kubash says:

    Put the bushing in the freezer for a few hours. That might help!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E.C. says:
