Official how to on Muffler Bearings



these are muffler bearings

after a while you need to replace them

DONT take your vehicle to your local muffler shop if they have this v certification you will get waaaay overcharged to get them usually $200-$500 depending



i did it my self but after a while they ended up looking like v this just 100 miles later :gosh:






Ive had this problem before and so have some of you so heres an indepth write up on how to fix them

Might want to check with your state. I know they have yours on file.

That'll explain a lot. If you do not have a family of 15 it gets lost here

Thanks for the writeup guys. I'm just about due.

Jeep manual says change every 91,523.7 miles. I'm at 91,520.0. I don't want to go over and experience the infamous muffler wobble.
