    Thrust angle question

    I went over my alignment over the weekend and it was 1/16” toe in. I decided to adjust my driver’s side control arm back 1 turn. Before I did I remeasured the top of the ball joints and the driver side was actually at 7.5 to 8 degrees and the passenger side was at 5.5 degrees. after moving the...

    I have been having a wandering problem with my JK since last November. It started right after installing a set of new Synergy HD ball joints. it settled down a little but is still wandering. Measuring my caster with a angle finder noticed that my passenger side ball joint is 4.5 degrees and my...

    Yukon gear pinion nut

    I contacted Yukon and they said it was a 7/8 x 14. Also gave me the part number of the correct pinion nut. They told me it is the same nut used in a stock set of Jeep Wrangler JK as well. I appreciate the help here! Hopefully I will get everything back together in a day or 2.

    Yukon gear pinion nut

    I measured the shaft and in is 7/8”. The Yukon ring an pinion gear set is the YKG012 4:56. It seems odd that it lists the rear pinion nut (doesn’t have the thread specs) listed as 1 5/16” and mine was 1 1/4”. I ended up ordering a 7/8 x 14 1 1/4”. Another oddity with this kit was the front...

    Yukon gear pinion nut

    Had my gears replaced (4:56) about a year ago by a 4x4 shop. I had purchased a set of Adams drive shafts and ran into a problem with the rear pinion nut. after I removed the stock driveshaft and started to remove the rear pinion nut I noticed it was badly deformed. It appeared to have been put...

    Ball Joint Replacement

    You are right about wasting my money on an alignment! I have been doing my with a set of the stainless steel alignment tool I bought from Bleeping Jeep. A few years ago I did a high steer and tie rod install and used that tool and never had any steering problems or uneven tire wear. Just that I...

    Ball Joint Replacement

    Ok, so I had a front end alignment and ended up with the same steering issue. I removed my steering stabilizer and it seemed to help just a little. Purchased an angle finder and my pinion angle is 0 and the top of the ball joint reads about 9 or 10 degrees caster. Still wondering how my caster...

    Lift upgrade

    I am actually doing a lift upgrade myself. I have heard so many good reports on the EVO plush rides that I purchased a set of 3” moving up from a 2.5” lift. Just waiting for some time to install.

    Ball Joint Replacement

    Yes, it did need an alignment but the ball joints were bad (lowers on both sides). I will get some mileage on them and see how it goes. Thank you for your quick response!

    Ball Joint Replacement

    I own a 2015 JKU and recently replaced my ball joints with Synergy HD ball joints. My rig has a 2.5" lift and before I replaced the ball joints it handled good with a slight pull to the right due to the bad joints. After replacing the ball joints my steering got flighty and reminded me of when...

    Metal in rear diff. FML.

    I just went through the same thing in May. It was my spider gear with the same gear ratio 3:73’s. I decided to upgrade to 4:56’s. I was told by a Jeep garage mechanic that this is a known issue but not sure if I believe that.

    2015 Jeep Wrangler Trackbar Issue

    I was thinking on the same lines of "A good time to upgrade"! I mentioned a new front axle to the wife and she wasn't too happy. I thought I would post a pic of the bracket. As I mentoned I am usually quick to wire brush and paint at the first signs of spring but we had so much rain this year it...

    2015 Jeep Wrangler Trackbar Issue

    About 2 weeks ago I noticed that when I made a low speed left turn there was a popping sound coming from the front end. I was thinking it might be the axle u-joint going bad. Checked the trackbar when turning the steering wheel and had no signs of anything wrong or any play in it. I took a road...
