Chased down some of the dreaded wobble.......... did the front end adjustment's per video here on the site. The axle pinch bolts are to be 16 foot-pounds and they came off, inside one was tight enough to cause me to back up and get a 1/2 drive with the outside one just over finger tight....


Needless to say, most of my wobble's are gone now. Some left, but front tire is about 70 percent used up (E3) so she gets new Metzler's for next season. But before that, I am off to STL to see some buddies this weekend. Might be last trip outside Ohio for the year


39874 miles

43206, Replaced both low beams with aftermarket from Iron Pony, 56.00 for the pair. Going to NAPA next time for sure. Also changed the rear end oil with Honda 80/95 and picked up oil for next oil change later this season.
