So I took the jeep to get it aligned...
I replaced my steering box.
my steering was a little stiff when turning to dead center and away from it and my steering wheel was a little bit off.
I also noticed a popping noise as I turned some times. Only when not moving though.
So I took it to my mechanic I always bring my jeep to to get it aligned, hoping it would solve the problem.
He doesn't do the alignments, he brings it to a place to get it aligned. This alignment shop told him I needed a few parts before they could get it aligned.
He comes back with me needing a new tie rod, track bar, and two new ball joints. For a total of $969.98.
That sounds like way too much. I'm guessing those parts are worn from the DW I experienced a while back when i rotated my tires, apparently one of them is so out of balance, it causes death wobble, so I have to keep it in the back.
Are these parts hard to replace? Prompt answer please.
