On a more positive note I've pulled 506miles out of my last tank of gas and I'd say that is most definitely some kind of a record

55mph for 90% of that driving, cruise control, tailwind, it was a good day for the mileage gods lol. Oh and stock street tires.

Edit: oh and a recent development, my tires may be to blame for my highway issues, the sidewalls "may" be compromised from what I'm reading. I am going to throw the 32s on tomorrow (yay real lifted Jeep) and see how if it makes a difference.

I noticed the moog SS skipped a bit when I actuated it by hand (huh?) but couldn't replicate it another time. Also noticed, the rubber bushings are SHOT, I was able to get a good bit of play between the rubber and the SS. Time for a new SS!

Sounds like the SS was questionable. CA bushings might need some love, but if they're not blatantly bad, they shouldn't be enough to cause DW.

Did a good bit of towing with my Jeep yesterday. All was well and then this morning I started it up and got horrendous noises. Who wants to play the guess this fluid game?!

Power steering judging by the location.

Most definitely. Looks to me like a blown up hose or its coming from the rack itself but the pump is shot too, needs full overhaul. Bad timing too. Didn't have time to look it over had to bike to work in the time it would take me to drive. Not fun.

Had some more time to look into my PS problems. Pump is weeping around joint to expansion tank and making horrible noises so new pump is in order anyways. Lower hard->soft joint on PS high pressure hose is wet and looks gross, i think thats where the failure has occurred. Pitman arm area of steering box and adjoining area is covered in PS fluid, box itself is dripping. What I'm hoping is that its the high pressure line was spraying the box. Once I get a second hand ill hop under and watch as the wheel is turned. It does not leak at idle.

Luckily that is a cheap and not too difficult fix if its just the pump and line

Edit: I also found this online today, it is a TSB for defective power steering line designs that cause "honking" noises. Mine has been doing that for about a year now and I thought that it was a steering collumn issue, explains why I was never able to find it. http://www.wjjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wj_1900301a.pdf

Got my PS fixed today. Replaced pump, pressure line, and all 3 o-rings. Flushed and refilled with fresh fluid, steering is great now really smooth (was notchy before and assist occasionally cut out in reverse) and no noise. Very happy with the results.

I have a plethora of pictures but Jeepforum is broken and won't let me upload them. From my phone it complains about being larger than 540.6kb (I used to do this all the time and never had any issues) and from my PC the upload finishes and it complains about a security token being missing and the upload is cancelled. Not motivated enough to dig up my photobucket account.

Edit: Oh also, no more low speed honking noises with turns!!

Well Jeesh sometimes it feels like that. I do plan on selling my Jeep soon so the next owner won't have much to worry about with all of these new parts.

Well my RB1 decided to kick the bucket. I got a good 6 months of awesome reliable use out of it and now it has caught the dreaded blank screen disease. Mines intermittent. Nobody knows the "right" way to fix it so I might be tearing into it blind. I have my old 3-band head unit but you know this is just really disappointing.

Ugh, that blows! At least you're not the only one with weird failures. I've got a flaky headlight switch that needs fixing (auto doesn't always work right, dash light flicker a bit sometimes unless on min or max) and the dreaded "coolant sensor bad" on the VIC 70% of the time now (just a cracked solder joint).
