Alright, I believe you if you checked, and it has been working good since. Just wanted to throw it out there as something to check
IIRC, you put on some new wheels to replace the turbines you used to have, right?Hmm... strange. Bad rim? Hasn't come back to haunt me. Been driving it everyday.
So recap. I pulled drivers tire off to fix u-joint. Went a few days and it came back.... AND HARD. Worse than before.
Pulled tires all 4 and rotated them. Now that the fronts are on back, they're not going through the stress of turning left or right.
Like I said to start.... this is something I've never experienced before. Going to monitor and update in few more days. Hopefully I've figured this out.
You know, I have a hard time believing that the gear box is the issue here. Because if it was, why after I pull tires is it fines for few days then returns?It’s seeming more and more like the steering gear, huh? I know your tie rods and ball joints are new. I know the Cardones are cheap on Amazon right now - your stock gear would be $70 out of pocket after core rebate. Unless you want to drop coin on red or blue hardware.
Yes, all looks goodSome questions,
1. Have you had a helper "rock" the steering wheel (KOEO)
while you inspect the steering assy under the hood?
(tre's, pitman & gear box, incl lower shaft.)
Frame crack....huh. I will look for this because that's where my mind is wandering now. But my mind is actually thinking something in the rear that is shifting the rear axle to cause the front to feel like it is....The guy I bought it from said he had axle work done to it. But who knows if they pulled the whole axle out. I'm going to be putting a huge focus on the frame behind the gear box and rear end next.2. Have helper Turn the steering wheel (KOER) to the stops & bump it while your
looking at the bj's, tre's, pitman & steering gear box (for movement at Frame)?
I've seen the frame cracked right behind the Gear Box & Only shows with this test.
I have pulled the steering shaft from the column and looked that far, and the u-joint connector moves nice and free with no play. Haven't went into the column yet.3. Tilt Wheel?
Have you inspected the Upper Shaft assy?
