1995 Jeep Wrangler was engaging with the pedal unusually close to the floor. I made a mental note to investigate it over the weekend. Unfortunately, when I tried to leave work on the next day, I found that the pedal went all the way to the floor and the clutch wouldn't even disengage at all, making shifting impossible. We towed it home, and I got to spend a couple hours on Sunday fixing the problem.

Replacing tired shock bushings
spring-over-axle lift on my '95 Jeep Wrangler 15 years ago, I installed a new set of Rancho RS9000 shocks with polyurethane bushings. They worked well, but in recent years, the suspension on my YJ has gotten noticeably noisy. While underneath my Jeep last week, I noticed that the cause of that noise was worn out shock bushings that were past their prime. In many cases, the center hole was hogged out so that the bushing flopped around on the bolt. In one case, the bushing was completely gone, leaving the bare shock eye to bang around on the bolt. Obviously, it was time for a new set of bushings.
