Jc Whitney, On a railroad rose to 90 + MPH sounded like a good idea and started to go for it. I survived – sometimes fortune smiles young ashles – but the struts on the Z never felt quite the same after hitting so hard. (The Dukes always look easier.)
New struts and recorded over 350 times more massive installation costs at the dealership. Around her in the same and 1,000, or about 900 and more than I had at the time. I was first class boned.
. At the same time, a Jeep-owner friend gave me a copy of a catalog JC Whitney (JC Whitney was famous at the time to transport almost all parts of any kind for a Jeep My boyfriend joked you could build a whole -. Very Jeep replacement parts for Whitney alone) I usually watch the leafs gear for cheap-ass stereo and CB radios, but I discovered something else – price: They flew leg “cartridges for my Z, and also. For about 20 each.
Doubtful, but on other viable options, I ordered a set. They arrived a few weeks later and I discovered (by peering at the diagrams dirty little padded in boxes) that the mechanisms of shock Z are mounted in the cabinet. To install the cartridges that I needed to remove all, the springs compress and remove, cut a specific portion of the leg, then install the replacement cartridge to replace the original. Being too young and too stupid to know how difficult or dangerous the project was, I did. Evenings a week and joins erupted later I was back on the road.
Why am I telling you this? Easy: You might still think JC Whitney catalog as the equivalent of a hubcap store. They certainly did little to dissuade you, the packaging of their home page full of bolt on accessories and performance mods questionable. But dig a little deeper and you find stuff really cheap-ass – that things are not nearly as smooth as the things he claims to be, but clever enough to do the job if you cannot afford better.
For example, you can still get 78 280 cartons of mast Z of Whitney. Inflation has caused little change in prices since the mid-80s, but they are still just 55. And you can always just about building a Jeep from their catalogs.
I am not suggesting that you buy any of ‘em; I do not recommend their products as impressive. But if you do not have Whitney on your list of places to find stuff for cheap, you’re missing something.
