so All jeep had the best price on that flange piece, ordering tonight.

I am also getting a set of these from a buddy



in a five lug of course

I am excited to see how they look, and more importantly if I get any better mpg from the lighter wheel

So today I had off school for all the snow we didn't get

I added a gauge to my dash for my oba, its cool to be able to see how much air ya got and watch the compressor clutch kick in and out

So I have been doing a bit of thinking, and the fact that I swapped my front ds and my vibes didnt change one bit, and my steering is a bit sloppy, i am beginning to think I actually screwed up my wheel bearings... so I will be looking at those tonight


I am also gonna put the seats on hold... I can get some zj ones for cheap, or just keep the stockers for now, And with the money I saved from them I am gonna get a tummy tuck from undercover fab, or a tom woods front shaft

I also think I am gonna not get the wheels, I know I will destroy them quickly

I am supposed to pick up that 4.10'd d35 on saturday, now I gotta find a front

the one thats being re built is for my rear when I sye it


I am/ have been getting front vibes ever since this rc trip



I thought It was the front shaft, it had a minor ding in it and a few rings around it where it spun against the rock... so I took it out, and whallaa no more vibes

So I bought another ds off of ebay, but it was in rough shape, put that one in, the vibes were exactly how the were with my original front shaft


so I know my vibes are coming from the front, but I was feeling them directly under me at the front t case output.

My steering was/has also been kinda sloppy lately, I think I need to add a tad more toe in, but I am within oe specs... This is why I am beginning to think wheel bearings

if i was you i would take the front driveshaft to get it balanced. it shouldnt be very much at a driveline shop but its worth a shot. while your at it id take the rear one that you just rebuilt and have that balanced also.
