Mine's a Rock Hard 4x4, Jake's is BodyArmor.

I'm pretty sure that there's actually more than one issue, and they're just building on each other to make it look like something else. Pretty sure it's a combination of bad ball joints (and possibly hubs and/or u-joints) and jacked up T/C linkage. Good thing is that I already have a Novak cable shifter on the way, and I'm going to get XRF ball joints soon. I just don't have enough money to fix and hope that I was right... So I'm getting the shop to give me a second opinion, so I'll know for sure I'm solving my problem.

So... Anybody remember when this happened?


Evidently my psycho ex's legacy lives on.

I just got a call from the Jeep dealer telling me that both of my rear axles are bent. Wait, what? That wouldn't cause a front-end shimmy, or the noise that I'm hearing. Did I run into anything? No, never! Evidently they're bent at the flange, from what looks like a "side impact." Oh. Now that rings a bell. Stupid *****.

They want $1800 to fix it. Surprisingly, only $300 of that is labor. Of course, they're quoting me $550 per shaft, plus new bearings ($170) and seals ($41). My response is that I can get a SET of Superior chromoly shafts for $400, including new bearings and seals. WTF is wrong with those prices?

On my way over to look at it now. If I'm feeling lazy, I'll supply the parts and have them do the install. If I'm feeling more broke than lazy, I'll do it all myself. And then we can try to diagnose the front end issues. I really hate my ex.

Or... you can call up your ex's ins. company and tell them that more damage was found to the Jeep when it was being pulled apart for upgrades. It turns out that she destroyed the axle and you now need a new axle. Quote them dealership price and negotiate. That will get you that hp 30 faster.

About that, yeah... It wasn't so much insurance as it was her granddad (who owns an insurance company) writing me a check. So I really doubt that he'll help at all, especially since from what I hear via facebook he effectively disowned her after I left...

Wow... that is pretty funny, but sucks for you. Build it yourself or spend the money on a JK 44

Thanks! I love them so far. Very low noise on the street, hardly more than my all-terrains were. Haven't had the opportunity to test them offroad yet, but from what everybody else has said, I'm sure I'll be pleased.

Got in contact with Gerald over at Savvy tonight about ordering some Superior shafts for the the rear. Hopefully that'll all be finalized tomorrow, and I can get this thing drivable again soon. Due to the wobble, my rear brake pads are toast, so I'm going to go ahead and order EBC green stuff pads and Centric rotors while I'm at it.

In other news, I finally got the hubs and knuckles off the HP30, so now I just need to go rent a ball joint press and then get to grinding!

Yeah, it was. They weren't bent the whole time, just weakened. Then over time, the stress of normal driving made them bend at the flange. Even now, you can't tell until you get the jeep up in the air and start spinning the wheels. Then there's a pronounced wobble on each side. Besides, I noticed the noise and vibration as soon as it started, it it just wasn't clear what was causing it, since the noise sounded like it was coming from the transmission.

Made a few purchases today.... Axle end Johnny Joints and HD LCA mounts for my D30, Grainger collars to make a high-lift mount, and a receiver recovery point from Viking Offroad... Also got a kit to use my Metalcloak rear flares with my Savvy corner guards, and some relays and fuse panel to start a power distribution center for some of my switches... I have way too many projects going at one time...

Never fully wired the OTRATTW switch panel. I'm finally getting around to it, and I'm basically going to make my own Source like the S-POD has. The only thing that currently works in that panel is the USB plug; I really need to change that!
