    Sooooooo....



    I persuaded my friend to let me...hold onto his cherokee (the army green/black one) for a week so I can steal his drivers side knuckle and axleshaft for the trip hehehe
    Agitated,
    Are you swapping out your Ball joints anytime soon on you D44 or are you just going to wait it out until you build your 609? I was looking on pirate at these XRF BALL JOINTS as it seems like the ones from ballistic MIGHT be available sometime next year and I'm not going to wait around for those and these XRF joints seem like they are an upgrade to standard spicer stuff ... I just built my front axle back in Jan/Feb and there is already slop in these 9-month old ball joints I might try these out as they're relatively inexpensive...

    I'm going to hold off until the 609 goes in. I got a few years out of these napa balljoints, and the sloppy one was on the side that broke the u-joint, and wheel studs. I'm wondering if some things were playing together into a chain reaction there.

    GOOD TO GO! *Cough*

    Fred,

    I had the same issue, and had to replace 1 pretty quick. The 1 thing, I've learned on stuff like that though is to use the best one's from Autozone, to get the lifetime warranty. Obviously, there is still the PIA factor when one goes out, but they've never questioned me for turning in a part for a warranty replacement. I'd definitely be interested in a better/stronger part if they were out there at a decent price though.

    I think this goes right along with my Optima battery. Seems like mine goes bad every 2 years, and I take it in with my receipt and they hand me a new one. It's probably the memory deal I've read about, but one of the guys once told me that the Red Top Optima's don't play nice with high amp alternators, so who knows. I guess I'll worry about that when they stop replacing them...


    See everyone bright and early.
