something rattling. Feels like its right under my feet
I have a rattle that feels like its right under my feet. Ive been all over underneath and don't see anything loose. I had a bad sway bar link a while back that i fixed but that felt like it was from the front anyway.
I first started hearing a rattle that progressively got worse. I was able to replicate the same noise when I crawled underneath and started shaking everything and finding out it was the main torque shaft as pictured in the write up that was the suspect. I sprayed it with Teflon spray and the noise was gone, but only for a day so I went to the dealer and ordered the kit. It was less than $30 and relatively easy to install. I'll be more than happy to help you all with questions about the install.
I'm heading up to see if i can get the parts and i notice that the tsb is dated 1998..i have a 2000 and it wasn't a regular part by then?
I guess it's one of those problems they knew about but didn't bother to correct. Not all of them make a noise... Mine is a 99 and it was very loud, my Dad has a 2000 that needs the repair kit but it doesn't make a sound, unless I grab it and shake it. There is no more boot left on it either. So I would bet there are a ton of owners riding around with the same problem but completely unaware of it.
i was alone so pulling the whole bracket from the top wasn't an option. I have the relocator on so it was two bolts to pull it off. Only took a few minutes...I'm so glad the rattle is gone ...it was driving me crazy
