    Default Re: What did you do to your jeep today?

    Did an oil change and tried to figure out why my steering is so ****ed. I checked the wheel bearing by moving the tires up and down. No noise, no movement at all. When I move them side to side there's a click sound and a little movement when I push on the side of the tire nearest the center of the jeep. That would indicate ball joints. The don't look terrible.


    Right upper

    Right lower

    Hard to see by left upper

    Left lower

    Here's the drag link end

    That looks pretty terrible. May possibly be the root of my problem?

    I don't want to keep throwing money at this and be wrong but it's at the point of not really safe to drive. It pulls bet hard to the right. Sometimes at speed out well start veering left. Any bump creates significant bump steer.

    Matt, why don't you have somebody watch what moves while you try to move the tire. Also have that person saw the steering wheel back and forth while you look. That can do a lot of diagnosing and take the guess work out in just about a minute and a half

    Forgot to mention, did that. The stabalizer was moving slightly on the axle side. I tightened that up. took a test drive, still a clicking when I turn and still hard pulling to the right. I didn't see any movement in the ball joints put anything else.

    Brand new. Torqued down and the axle is perfectly centered.

    I would suggest getting it aligned. That is once you get all the parts good and solid

    My new tires came in, just waiting on my backorder wheels. When those finally come in and I get them put on I'm going have them look at it. Should be next week.

    In preparation of getting the Jeep back on the road so I can carry a ladder for work, Matt generously donated his birthday and helped me replace the badly leaking heater core, evap core and swap e-brake handles and replace brake shoes and drum hardware. Got to drive it from his shop to his house (AWESOME driving that thing again after two years) and we'll bleed the brakes, flush coolant, vacuum and charge a/c. Then it'll be off for inspection and registration!





    Also got to see an old friend

    Last weekend I picked up a 8.8 with discs and 4.10 gears from the jy. Thanks Jake for helping me move this heavy axle.

    On Sunday I took it to the Jeepers for the Warriors Jeep show in Spring.

    Yup. Haven't had time to finish it yet. Hoping if I wait long enough, the wife will let me keep it
