If the Pinion seal wasn't leaking you might be out of fluid!

thats my reason anyways.....

That's a good point, I figured the blow off would just be rust proofing.

Hit 148,000 miles today, crazy to think I've been riding in this Jeep since it had less than 100 miles.

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!

Bought new FUCA bushings for the axle side, Rented CA bushing removal tool. Tool too small. Took back to Advanced. Got ball joint removal tool. Would not fit with spring still in. Spent 3 hours fighting this.
Wanted to:
1. replace CA bushings
2. replace T-case fluid
3. continue windstar intake system

What did I get done NOTHING! I feel like throwing everything across the garage. Sometimes you just have to call it quits for the night, pop a cap and order a pizza. Till tomorrow night you POS.

Replaced both hub assemblies, 2 tie rod ends. 3 dust boots, and had it aligned. Still have death wobble, on top of that, the CD player went out and it squeaks at low speeds. I can't even stand to look at it right now.

Like my GrandPappy said, only way to learn is to do it yourself. Even if you break some things along the way.

Ordered my mml, and started on the shift shaft seal. Getting the old seal put was simple. Took some 3/4" conduit, clamped it down to put pressure on the seal, and threaded it in with my channel locks. Done. Now getting the new one in seemed to give me a hard time. I didn't have the right size pipe, washers, or socket. Then when I finally got a handful of things to use to drive it in, I realized there isn't any room to hit it. My c-clamp wouldn't press it in straight. I finally got it(I hope). Now I just got to put the damn thing back together

Its too cold in the morning to keep the rear window rolled up, so the hardtop went on for the season. The mucket seals stayed on!
