NORMALLY WHEEL CYLINDERS ARE NOT CHANGED UNLESS THEY ARE LEAKING OR SEIZED UP (RUST)---OR SOMEONE USED THE WRONG FLUID AND THE SYSTEM WAS CONTAMINATED (LIKE TRANNY FLUID)

I GO OVERBOARD----IF ONE OF MINE LEAKS---I'LL CHANGE THE OTHER SIDE TOO, JUST FOR PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

IT IS COMMON TO JUST REPLACE "THE ONE" BAD ONE. NOTHING IS WRONG DOING THAT

MY DAILY DRIVERS ARE 36 AND 65 YEARS YOUNG (MY WIFE IS A BIT MORE MODERN).I TRY TO INSURE THEY CONTINUE TO BE MY DAILY DRIVERS.I HAVE HAD JEEP CJs AS DAILY DRIVERS SINCE 1981.A LITTLE "PRESENT" FOR THEM EVERY NOW AND THEN, BEATS A MONTHLY CAR PAYMENT

"MR. JEEP" RECENTLY GOT A BATTERY"WILLY" HAD THE THROW-OUT BEARING GO OUT. HE GOT A WHOLE CLUTCH SET OUT OF THE DEAL, SINCE I WAS IN THERE ANYWAY. JUST LOOKS LIKE THAT THROW-OUT BEARING WOULDA LASTED LONGER, I INSTALLED IT IN 1991!

WHAT KINDA DEAL DO YOU HAVE GOING ON WITH YOUR BRAKES?
