Front axle bearings Dana 30
My Jeep maintenance adventures continue.......
When I make a sharp turn, such as at an intersection, my front end now wants to take a hard dive to the right! I then have to hold the steering wheel to the left until I straighten back up. Otherwise everything is fine, drives great down the highway, no vibrations or erratic steering.
I raised the front end onto jackstands and checked for play in the front wheels. When I grab the tires at 12 and 6 and shake up and down there is a little play (I'm guessing maybe 3/4" play).
Is this too much play? Could this be causing the hard dive when turning? Do I need to replace the axle bearings? What else could be causing the hard diving?
Any help would be appreciated!
