Viggen Clutch: Fixed!!

Finally got my car back and couldn't be happier. It was expensive as all hell, but worth every penny. The clutch an PP were toast as well as most of the shifter linkage. one of the marcel springs was actually dislodged and rubbing the fingers on the PP. 130K and the rear main and slave cylinder were still ok but I had them done anyways.
I had it done at a local shop (no way I was doing it on my back) , but thanks to all who reccomended reputable shops on the South Shore.

1998turbosaab - I assume you mean REAR MAIN ?? yeah its a common thing, but you don't even need to drop the trans to do it. My ma's XJ has 198,000 on it and its just seeping. I only have 110.000 which is actually low mileage to me.

Rafal-- too much money in labor, but hey I still have side skirts and they fixed a bunch of linkage and diff seals while they were in there.

SRP- 44's are nice and easy. I had an 8.8 in my YJ but the 29 spline Chrysler 8.25" is more than enough. 3.5" RE lift is on the way. . . .

ohhh nice Rubicon Express is my fav. I have there long arm lift in my last Xj and yeah I know 110 is low miles. haha d44 is the way to go but having a newer cherokee you should have the 29 spline 8.25 and up front the d30 with the bigger 297 u joints.

110,000 isn't even broken in for the inline 6. Mine has 264,000 miles on it and has no issues spinning 32" tires with stock gearing.
