No that is very early, so it is not the norm.

Needs someone to check for play in the items you have mentioned (though probably not the u-joints), plus the swaybar links, and shock absorbers. If you can get the vehicle jacked off the ground (with safety stands under it) you should be able to check most of these items with a suitable lever bar. Wobble the steering wheel side to side to check the tie rod ends, with the vehicle on the ground and one hand on the tie rod to feel for the clunking.

thiers many of things that can cause that, first off with your kit i didnt see lower adjustible
arms so with that much lift your diff angle could be off. needs to be 7deg. also if your sure the ball joints are perfect and its alined right them look at the stearing box for play in the arm . it can be adjusted with the set screw. jeep-xj.com hope that helps....

That may be normal with 7 inches of lift and large tire. If it has not been in for an alignment after the install I would do that ASAP. 35" tires are expensive to burn up.

tires? tires balanced? shake violently? if your jeep has a "Steering Stabilizer" I would replace it.

SOURCE: How much does it cost to replace the front end tie

I think - both sides parts would be about $50-$70 for labor would be $100-$300. Dealership is highest labor, a local tire shop or fix-it gas station would be more reasonably priced.

How do I change track rod


Hello there.
You should really buy a 'Haynes Manual' if you are doing this kind of work on your car.
The item you are renewing is either a 'Track rod end ' or a 'Tie Rod'..
I presume you are going to change a Track Rod End.

Here we go !

.1) First Jack up the car and support on axle stands properly. You should ALWAYS do this. Jacks CANNOT be trusted EVER.

2) Undo the small nut on the top of the Ball joint. You then need to use a Ball Joint Splitter or a 'homemade metal wedge' and big Hammer, and insert it between the two parts (Track rod end and suspension extension) and separate the two parts. The 'bolt' that the nut was on is a tapered fit so it will be hard to separate the two. .

3) When separated, undo the locknut on the other end of the Track Rod end and 'unscrew' the whole Track rod end from the Tiie Rod..
IMPORTANT Make a note of how many turns it took to 'unscrew' the Track Rod end from the Tie Rod.

4) Screw the new Track Rod end into the Tie Rod as exactly the same number of turns to take out the old one if you can. (DONT forget to put the old locknut on to the new Track Rod End first !!!!)

5) Locate the thread of the new ball joint through the Suspension extension as was initially found and then fully tighten a NEW Nyloc nut on the top of the threaded part. (If you use the old nut and the steering comes apart at 70 MPH don't blame me)

6) Tighten the lock nut on the other end on the Track Rod End.

7) Take to a Tyre shop and have the TRACKING re-aligned. If you dont do this your tyres will only last for two weeks or so. !!!!!!

Can i change tie rod ends on my 1994 jeep grand cherokee 2 wd without jacking it up?


You can do the tie rod ends on the ground, not sure about the other parts. The stabilizer bar has pressure on it most of the time.

Caster adjustment for 1990 jeep yj wrangler


caster is adjusted at the rear of the lower control arms. Camber is fixed and cannot be adjusted by normal means (though special off-set ball joints are available to do that) Toe in is adjusted by turning the sleeves in or out on the tie rod ends. None of this should be done at home though crude adjustments can be made in order to get the front end reasonably straight. Adjustments are made on an alignment machine that allows precise adjustments to all you mentioned as well as front/rear tracking.

I need to now how.My stirring wheel when ever turning the front end tires makes craking noise.The fluid level is normal. Its only has 76,777 miles.Shocks on front one of the boots leak could that be the...


hi the broken gaiter/boot could be a problem normally these are full of lubricating grease as they have ball bearings in side, this is called a CV joint, or constant velocity joint, when the bearings get dry they make more of a clicking noise more than a cracking noise, but it would be advisable to get the gaiter repaired/replaced, the noise you may be hearing could be a track rod end or a ball joint, when these are worn they tend to move in directions they are not made to do, ie sideways motion, also, the spring caps can also make this noise if one of the springs have come out of their seat and as you turn one way it tries to pop back in but when you turn the other way it pops out again, you could have a friend turn the steering wheel for you to test this, best way to test this would be to just turn the wheel without the engine running so to put as much strain on the front as possible, to test if the ball joint/track rod end has worn, is to jack each side up and pull the bottom of the wheel and push the top in a shaking motion any movement will show where it is coming from track rod end or ball joint...hope this helps

I have a 2002 jeep wrangler that seems to start shaking at 60mph below or over ok. It is not major but noticeable. Where do I start looking? Thanks Dan


Grab hold off the prop-shaft to see if it is quite solid, it could be a worn UJ. Check the balance weight on the same shaft to ensure it hasn't slipped forward or backwards on the shaft.
Then get wheels checked, they could need re-balancing.

How do i get the track rod end off my hyundai accent 1998


Unbolt the nyloc nut holding the track rod end to the front wheel hub.Just before the nut is completely off hit the nut down over to free the tapered spindle from the hub. Alternately use a ball jiont splitter.(these tend to split the rubber boot on the track rod end). Then using two pairs of vice grips , put one on the track rod and one on the lock nut on your steering rack. A little heat would help here. Free the locknut the immediately unscrew the track rod end.Lock off the steering rack arm while you do this. It will rotate unless you do this.remove the track rod end. Replace all parts after boot replacement. you will need to excerpt upward pressure on the track rod end when refitting it to the hub. Take care not to wind the track rod end locknut too far as this will effect the wheel alignment. Good Luck

Jeep 1992 yJ Outside Door Handle


ok, the inside panel is cardboard with faux leather. remove the screws holding on the inside handle and the frame of the doorlatch.

there is a plastic joint that connects the two rods that actuate and open the door. the rods are bent at the end to slip into the white plastic joint. this design is stupid and often times that joint can break, or the rods fall out. solution is to reattach them together and wrap mechanics wire or bend the very ends of the rods so they wont come out.

its something i cant really explain, but the design is straight forward. also, keep track of the threads on the rod that connects to the claw that meets the striker on the frame of the jeep. if for any reason its not adjusted properly, it will not latch properly.
