been getting tons of wobbling/vibrations from the front wheels at 50+ mph. might need to get my wheels balanced but the bigger problem was the wheel bearing was bad. had replaced the driver's side a while back but was time for the passenger side. bought a Raybestos for $56. worked on that today, now just need an alignment and possibly balance the wheels. haven't driven it much yet to see if that solved the problem i was having.

You dont have to get an alignment because of a wheel bearing

the one i did a few months ago was a Timken and paid about $90 for it, but this was something i needed done soon and didn't have much money. the Timken's i believe are the good quality ones.

so haven't updated in a while. been putting off jeep work cause i was spending my money on this (built from scratch by me )


week ago had my tires balanced and a much needed align,ent


replaced my signal stalk cause my turn signals stopped working


the other day i started the jeep and there was a loud whining noise opened the hood and my serpentine belt was shredding. so went to go change it out and broke the tensioner by turning it the wrong way...oops


so i had it towed to my local shop he replaced it for me and replaced the power steering pulley which was cracked for the past 3 years. also had some other things inspected and got quoted on some work.

i was having a very bad wobble at 50+ mph couldn;t figure out what was wrong, mechanic said it might be the trackbar nut was loose. so when i got home i tightneed it and what do you know it fixed it. other things i got quoted on where front/rear pinion seals...about $233 for both. also my TC linkage needs replacing, part is $160ish....i'll probably do that myself. i think this is all i need...http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/shifters/sk2xc.htm

and i hope to buy some much needed tires/wheels in a few months since i make a lot of extra dough for peak season.
