Looks like they did a nice job.
Slide a long box end wrench over your Allen wrench for extra torque. + LocktiteWell shes not fully bolted in yet...goofballs had me get hex head bolts and while they look awesome they are not ideal and I dont have much in the way of torqueing them down tight. An Allen wrench won't do.
Just Empty Every Pocket.That solved a lot of the vibrations, but not that sound over 50mph coasting. Might have a rear wheel hub going bad causing the rest of the vibrations and weird growling noise. Mother puss buckets she's going to be practically brand new after all this. JEEP
Oh brother, sorry to hear that.Sounds about right, lol.....These beasts are only getting older
Mine went BACK to the dealership yesterday for transmission electrical issues that I can't do anything about myself since it's all computers, nor can any other repair or tranny shop. Only the dealership with their Starscan can troubleshoot this crap. I'm already $2k into this tranny problem 😫 and I'm pretty sure now it's due to old wiring messing with the voltages on the CAN bus....
Yup....as I get older I'm learning to choose my battles, lol.... as much as I HATE just "throwing money at a problem until it's fixed", I also just want it to work and not worry about it being done right or not and how long the "fix" might last.Oh brother, sorry to hear that.
Unfortunately, there are times when you have no other choice but to throw in the towel and go to the dealership.
My friend, you and I are definitely on the same page; I'm 51 and with all the traveling I'm forced to do, time is definitely a luxury I don't have. And when I am home, I have to try & balance my time with family, household projects, yardwork & XK projects.Yup....as I get older I'm learning to choose my battles, lol.... as much as I HATE just "throwing money at a problem until it's fixed", I also just want it to work and not worry about it being done right or not and how long the "fix" might last.
Electrical issues usually don't bother me, as long as it's normal 12v circuits, i kinda like decifering wiring diagrams, lol. They are still annoying, but I can usually figure them out fairly quickly...BUT as soon as you get complicated data bus lines like our CAN bus system, i'm out. All i can do is continuity checks and there's sooooo many wires with voltage and resistance changes as they go through various circuits. I'm just noping myself straight to the dealership, already feeling the wallet get lighter....$2k was not easy to cough up, but the tranny went full "limp-mode", 3rd gear ONLY, a week before we were supposed to drive across the country from CA to AL for our move. My hands were tied, and i didn't have a house, garage or any of my tools anymore because of the move. Fortunately we keep a good savings account for emergencies like this, but $2k would have been much better spent elsewhere, lol.Damn electrical issues are the WORST. I wouldnt have $2k to throw around. Lol the suspension and driveshaft drained me soooo bad.
The more i research the more it sounds like a pinion bearing idk, going to keep going at diag. Its stupid I literally asked the shop to give everything a test and lookover to make sure we got it what it needed. I shouldnt have used them at all. Besides the basic stuff they refused to touch anything related to suspension or driveline because of my lift. They said the driveline felt in a bind but didn't do anything besides recommend a "proper" lift. They told me to drop my transmission and transfer case and a bunch of other stuff. I kind of wanted to tell them to shove it, but realized they ONLY want to deal with 100% factory specced vehicles. Theres one mechanic i know that's great here, my old boss uses him a ton and he didn't do me wrong the two times I had to go to him, so I guess heres to another visit.
