Installing Eibach Springs and BWoody End Links

So I am FINALLY getting some suspension work done to the Jeep. I have some Eibach springs on the way and I bought some BWoody end links from a member. I can't wait to get them installed. The Jeep should handle WAY better. I have all the important threads on bookmark for installation tips, such as which bumpstop spacers to use and how to put the BWoody's in correctly. I LOVE THIS SITE!

I will get some before and after pics as well.

And while I'm under the car I am doing the TC and differential fluid changes. All the fluids are already here (all $200 worth!) and ready to go. Will follow the wkjeeps how-to, except I did see a thread here that said the wkjeeps has you put in too much NV146 into the TC then is desired, so I will dial it back a little.

I'm hoping to do the same this weekend (same parts as well)! Good luck and we'll see how it looks and handles once complete.

I'm hoping mine show up tomorrow. My end links came in today! Was thinking about going ahead and installing them but since they have to come off to put the springs on anyway I figured why waste the time.

Yep, I waited for both to come so I didn't have to get under it twice. I am also waiting for the fluid changes at the same time to the diffs and TC.

I'm excited for you guys. I plan to do the same in a short week to come. What are the end links for? Are those Sway Bar End Links? If so, are those better than factory end links?

Thanks guys and GL with the mod!

They are sway bar end links, front and rear. You can read more about them here - Bwoody End Links

Or do a search on this site. But there are plenty of guys running them that have been very happy with the results. I can't say for sure as I don't have them installed yet but from what I've read and what I know of upgraded end links in general they should give you slightly sharper turn-in and probably stabilize the suspension better in turns. These are much beefier than stock and also have better bushings.

I hope to be able to tell you via first hand experience very soon!

So today I got the front and rear differential fluid changed as well as the transfer case fluid. Then I replaced the brake pads, end links, and Eibachs on the rear. Tomorrow is front springs and end links and calling it macaroni. I'm stoked already on the look and ride with the Eibachs and end links and I haven't done the front yet!
