Help - Just bought 86 Cj7
I just bouhgt a CJ7 - and I bought it with the understanding that you don't just drive a jeep , it's more of a hobby. Problem is, I want to enjoy this a little before I get dirty. I have two questions:
1) Did the Dana 44 have posi, or was it added aftermarket? When I lift the rear end off the ground and spin a wheel, the other one spins the same direction. I think that may be why I hear the creaking noise around turns. It's not a ratcheting sound, or the brakes. I assume it may be due to the possi?
2) Also, the rear wheels have about 1/8 to 1/4" of play. In other words you can push them into and pull them out of the jeep like you were going to remove the wheel. Is that normal? How do you fix this? COuld it be related to the creaking noise?
