glad youre ok
Yeah hopefully just that shaft, and all the other brake related things. Back when it was in the transmission shop, they told us that the wheel had a real bad wobble when it was on the lift. 8000 miles later, it breaks.

The transmission people told us that it could be a bent rim or a UN balanced tire. We went with what the said.

Perfect Fall day, clear blue sky, 63F, dry after last nights rain, some colour in the trees, and, had time to clean up the Ranger. Wash and wax, was badly needed, and a slight detail on the outside.
Thought I'd try something different, and used 303 on my tires, as well as the tonneau, and all the other plastic. Think it turned out well enough.
Also figured I'd pick up Bob C's habit of including my very best buddy in my photos.
Then, went in the house, made bean soup for dindin, and then a cup of coffee and a cigar out on the front deck. Doesn't get any better!!!!

{Might be getting my Tbars cranked a bit this Thursday}

I never saw what they said was happening either, nor did I feel it driving. BUT I did just start a new thread about wrecking rangers.
