Seriously flush the whole thing. When you do your oil change, put on a fresh filter and put in diesel fuel instead of oil. Run the engine for about 20 minutes, drain it, put another new filter on and fill with oil.

Do you guys have the HD flex joints or stock style clevite joints?
Oh I just have the stock style joints for the trackbar. And rustys non adjustable LCAs, stock UCAs. Figured it wasen't always like that but just wanted to see. I haven't exactly figured out where the noise is coming from location wise either. Or when it happens.

My control arms are adjustable and I have a heim style joint on my track bar but its terrible because its always at the end of its rotation because of the way it mounts, RCX junk stock style joint would be better....my Jeep is put together with the cheapest parts.

Replaced the components in the brake drum, hand brake hasn't worked for years. Now it keeps the jeep from rolling forward but still goes backwards.. That's not normal is it? I'm totally confused.. How does that happen??

Oh weird I assumed it was supposed to stop both ways.. I've got a manual and I'm used to just leaving it in 1st since I haven't had a handbrake. Guess I'll keep that up

I have a manual and mine stops the vehicle in reverse, it will stall out the engine as well.
