Picked up a nice shiny oil catch can for the jeep! Also modified a new bosch alternator in place of a mud filled "thing" that didnt work.

^ not sure what your lower ball joints look like, but my honda mechanics have convinced me anything other than a properly placed cold chisel and a mallet is a waste of time (properly placed being in an area you can wedge it with good leverage but still be a safe distance from the balljoint itself) takes my favorite monkey 10 minutes to do an axle on my car
