95 Front End Issues
I recently took my truck in for an alignment. They said they could not do an alignment because my steering gearbox was leaking (probably doesn't affect alignment), my drivers side ball joints were bad, my bearings needed to be repacked, and some of my tie rod ends were bad.
I had all that work done within the past 1.5 years or so. I got new ball joints (Moog - which I'm now learning aren't as good as I thought), new bearings, new u-joints, new steering gear (reman) and new tie rods. I cheaped on the Tie Rods so I know those could use replacing.
My question is, is that normal for ball joints to go bad in udner 2 years with 35x12.5 tires? At least one of my tires is BADLY chopped it. It makes the worst vibrating noise.
Does anyone have any write ups for repacking wheel bearings and replacing ball joints? I know I can do it all, just never have. Thanks yall,
Thanks and Gig 'Em!
