What the f***sickles. The damn Cherokar's alarm decided to flip a b**** on me at the mall. An hour of f***ing with it and I finally discovered the door switch that turned it off. PO tossed out the lock cylinder and disconnected everything with it, so I had to find the switch. Turned it off and the thing ran like a top.
Border Parts is on the east side of Bancroft just south of hwy 94.
They are an old school parts store - you'll see what I mean when you go there. Also, parts are priced according to your attitude and demeanor. John makes them up as he goes.
I agree with you Joe, he throws out prices depending on his mood. I just pick up both upper and lower ball joins from them for $45. I think that's a great price for Spicer ball joints. Too bad I can't install them. :/
Roberto, when I had to get my knuckles off while I was breaking down my 30 I just used a pickle fork and a bfh they will come off no worries! I also used a lil bit of heat from a propane torch if that made a difference I'm not sure, but they came off after a number of wacks. If you break the rental tool, so what!
If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.
My cherocar is for sale. will trade for a good running tow truck, preferably diesel. the add is on CL, just search for XJ and it'll pop up. If anyones interested, hit me up.
i'm over the unibody and this tireless dead end road. PS it runs great. i drive it every day to-from work, around town, the mountians etc.

Both autozone and Orreily's have the same cheap tool. If any one has a better tool, please let me know.
after bending an HF press, I rented the one from oreilly... worked fine.

That, or do what Blaine suggested
oh sure... you want me to replace that wet noodle you gave me...
So this boy/young man stopped by to talk to me about asking my daughter out to the prom. He’d asked my daughter and she told him he needed to talk to me. (Yeah, I’m proud of her). It was John Yoo, former Justice Department Official, who said we could waterboard enemy combatants. By the time we finished having a chat, I think he may have felt he’d been waterboarded. At least he was clear on my expectations of how he was going to treat my daughter and the consequences otherwise. Now I just need to clean my gun.
So anyone free to come by my place tomorrow and help me get these u-joints replaced? I managed to get the rear one out at the axle side. The others, not so much. I'm off at 1230 and should be home by 1. Need this done tomorrow because I'll have to get my loaner car back to my grandma on Monday.
