Exclamation Bang Crunch

After owning a WH Grand for 18months,
though I'd take the time to post some of
the repairs I've had to do. For example

Driving up the highway
Bang crunch grind
Just another prop shaft uni joint
Damn things don't last long





At least they're easy to replace
Jeep Part Recyclers on eBay looked after me too
http://stores.ebay.com.au/jeeepartrecyclers/

Skill Ratings: 1 knuckle
Time Rating: 3 beers

Look forward to more posts soon
Cheers

Replace the front diff bushings, will correct the prop shaft angle & your CV's will last longer.

Thanks Clarky

This prop shaft CV was the firs thing I replaced
About 4 months ago I got around to replacing the front diff bushes
Wasn't as hard as I imagined, but still a definite 12 beer job
So maybe the CV started wearing prior to ...

PS Your ride looks schmick

Default Prop Shaft

After replacing the rear CV on the prop shaft
just noticed in the parts catalogue Chrysler has
the prop shaft the other way around

Any Thoughts?

The diagram is incorrect, defiantly plunge CV at diff end.
