Hey everybody, haven't posted in quite some time. Did the same thing BigMan was up to- getting married, moving, looking for a house thing. So anyway-back on topic, I need new ball joints, both sides, top and bottom-OUCH! Just wanted to check with everyone to see first off whether I should be driving my CJ at all. (I drive about 6 miles to and from work every day- city style). I have a lot of play on the driver's side wheel and some play on the passenger side. I don't think this is something I'll tackle myself simply for lack of tools and time, unless you guys can convince me otherwise. You know it just sucked hearing the estimate from the local 4 wheel drive shop this close to Christmas ($650 for both sides).
I now live in Charleston, SC where it is very flat and most Jeeps are going for MUD. Much different from my personal tastes, but have encountered many knowledgeable Jeepers. The new job is also demanding much of my time, so I've missed so many discussions. I feel like my Jeep knowledge has suffered without being able to spend time each day reading all the great info on this board.
Hope to see you "Southerners" this spring.
