Whats going on guys and gals? I just moved here from Valdosta GA(Moody AFB). My jeep is currently in really horrible shape but soon to be fixed I hope. I'm looking forward to hopefully meeting a few jeep owners and finding out where the good places to go are. Also if anyone has a set of stock tires...idc if they are bald let me know. I'm fighting death wobble and everything is ok so i'm thinking tires. Thanks Tread lightly!
Hey revoffroad have you check your wheel bearings yet? My dad has a 1980 cj5 that had the same problem, everything was brand new on it and still had the death wobble, when we took it to an alignment place (for the 3rd time) he showed us both front wheels where loose. we got it home took the wheel and hub assemble off and sure enough the inner and outer nut where loose, tighten them up and the death wobble was gone.
You can check yours by putting a jack under the axle, get the tire off the ground a few inches, with both hands grab the bottom of the tire and pull it back and forth, if the tire moves back and forth the bearing are loose or gone bad.
Hey man, welcome to Tucson. I moved out here from Savannah/Athens about 4 years ago. Tucson's got some great wheeling. If you're planning any trips let me know, and I'll post ours up here too. I wheel mostly with the University of Arizona club, Wildcat Off Road. But I've never attended U of A so that's not a requirement to be in the club. Same to you skydiver. Cheers fellas
I have 33's as well. My 30 has been chewed up since before I moved out here. Spider gears shredded and chunked up my ring, pinion, and carrier. So once I decide that repairing a dana 30 is worth 600 dollars then i'll fix it. I want to do it myself but would like someone who has done a couple installs. I get the principle but would like to not waste my money and mess it up. lol
