... and maybe a skyjacker bushing?

Running w/ one shock less, and it looks like mopar was $90 for this cheap POS piece of metal.

Take a look:

Mount w/ bushing on it:


Mount w/ bushing off: (short side broke first)


Mount location:








I don't know if someone hit me while I was parked, or if it was just a pothole - but this happened either last night or this morning, driving in-town.

It's ok for a short jaunt if you take her easy. I had that problem on my TJ, and ended up making billet mount cuz they kept breaking. Something to think about.

This is the best thing. I also had this problem on my TJ, went through like 4 bar pins before getting the eliminators. If you need one, check with 4 wheel parts, they may have some just laying around..... Thats where I woud get mine from when they broke.

Ayuh, I picked up some BPE's from George last night. I'll have a new set of MX6 shocks tomorrow, as the one that came off was hosed anyhow, and an adjustable rear track bar (shock had hit the bracket) next week.

Still haven't quite solved or figured out the real problem with why it broke, but George + others say its likely related to the shocks stopping droop, so once I get the new shocks on and resolve a number of other issues, it'll be time to hit that all up.
