Not many places with the unnescessarily hot 195* ... but 190s ought to be hidden on a shelf somewhere. Even the 180 will be fine if you're stuck needing something in a hurry.

Even hicksville where I am has 'em at the storefront, ford, holden, and auto accessory shops.
Nope none nothing tried the only 2 places in town apart from going out the dump and pulling one from a wreck I thought they would carry thermostats in case someone or passing Grey Nomads might be getting a bit HOT
it wouldn't cost much to have a few on the shelf

That's a bummer Jj. 😨
Just offering mine up, looks like they are the right length.



I royaly f u Ck e d up with the shocks. 😭
They're the same length as what I have. 😅😅😅😅😅😅
Will suit a 2 or 3" lift. Too bleedin short for me.

And it's goin to cost me $60 to take the buggers back!!!! More fool me. Rushing see, not researching properly. Not seeing the forest for the trees.

Anyone want a pair of Old Man Emu's for the front of their Jeep? $300 posted. 😂

Bed time. Goin to dream about what colour to paint my disconnects.

Thanks man. I'm looking at a couple of choices. The bloke at ARB can't get longer shocks, to swap. But I can buy them, online. Go figure. So, I'm looking at ome's. Fox shocks. And I can't remember the other one off the top of my head, right now.
Should get them, posted, for less money than I payed for the ome's from arb.
Why can't I just be bloody patient?

Pulled ,y trackbar relocation bracket off and it pushed my axel slightly to the left side. It also took care of 90% of the lean I was experiencing. Now it's less than 1/2" different between left and right!

Interesting cause for that lean. Can you post a pic of how it looks now (I think you posted a pic from the "before" , didnt ye?) ?

Stop calling your car a "she". It's a car.

No prob...

Before



And after...



My theory is that having the axel off to the right side was "propping" up the right spring, and pulling down the left. Surprisingly the axel is almost exactly even under the Jeep now. My steering wheel was 90* to the left after moving the trackbar back to its original spot. It's still leaning, but it's nowhere near as bad as it was.

strange my xj has 3" pucks in it and stock track bar and leans over to the drivers side aswell.. changing to proper springs and adjustable track bar shortly will need to make sure it doesnt lean still.. i think you are probably right about the springs leaning over or possibly just the body wants to tip cos the axle isnt even under it
