Default Re: got a shake

Well just got back from working on my truck (buddy's garage is better than my driveway especially in 8 deg weather) and he lifted it up and we found that when you lift it up you can access the bolts enough to tighten but not remove the diff cover....so he checked them and sure enough a few were loose...so he tightened them and told me to put Lucas stop leak in it and if we had to take it out to fix it we would do it when it got warm cause he said it was alot of work....and if we do it when it's warm I'll have my stang to drive...I hope this takes care of it!!

Well I stopped at the local jiffy lube because it's been so snowy out and had them check the diff...they a Said it looks as thought the leak has stopped and the diff is still full... Now I just need a new hub and new rotors and pads...does it ever stop??

----------

Got to test out the 4wheel today as well.....



This is the hill I have to climb when it snows...it don't look thar steep but when it's snowy it's a biotch...

Well, so far I've managed to cut the noise by half...3 of 4 tires were low from the dealer. 15 in the front right, 20 in each rear. One tire was at 30. Noise is about 1/2 what it was, but I know now it's either a hub bearing or something REALLLY expensive. Since nothing is ever cheap. So happy I bought the warranty with it....SO HAPPY.

We got about 3" of the white crap yesterday, got to try it out. Fresh powder, well, I gotta say my Tracker was better in it than this truck. Ordered studded tires, and I'll put some weight in it, but it sure is a lot different than the Tracker was.
