    headlight assembly question

    what parts store are you looking at? Advance and Autozone only have one set on the website. Same exact one that should be on your BII now. Advance has them for ~$10 cheaper than autozone though, but you can find them on ebay for a lil cheaper than those.

    I'd say it's about time to replace the upper ball joint

    doesn't look that bad to jk. Why didn't you do both sides at the same time?

    4.0 SOHC plastic thermostat housing

    When i did mine i popped the bushings out of the upper, then the upper fits on lower perfectly. I guess it really wouldn't matter though. I used a small socket and a hammer to push mine out.

    01+ engine in '98

    Hello, I have searched the forums but can not get a clear answer.

    +1 I just did this today, and taking the wheel off and removing that flap makes it a whole lot easlier. I didn't use any swivels or anything, just some small extentions.
