Care to lend a hand?
« on: February 20, 2016, 01:17:45 PM »
So, I'm about ready to just throw in the towel and wait for this thing to breakdown on me while driving. Would anybody care to take a little bit of time during their day or evening to just take a look over my LJ? I'm looking to get second opinions from someone who can do a thorough look with me. New problems keep arising and I feel it's just because they exist and old ones were masking them.

Yep. That is how death wobble goes. Fix one to reveal another issue.

I better have a damn solid rig when I'm finished here. This time the rear end is giving me trouble, though. There's wiggle and sway when driving.

It's in a few different languages. I'm glad I found it too. Must've happened when the welding from the previous owner failed on the track bar and it disconnected without me knowing haha. So, now I need to either replace the bushing or the whole arm. Already replaced the rear lowers and front uppers....

Which end? Front or rear? And no, I didn't for the one that was loose. It was tack welded and that was it. No bolts or anything. So I drilled through the top of the bracket like they were supposed to and attached it all with hardware.
