I've ordered new bushings but I'm surprised that they went bad so soon. As I stated earlier I was fighting the DW for a little while and during that time experienced it probably 4-5 times. Could...

Thanks Water Dog, I had a feeling. I'm fairly confident that the hole is ok because I don't see any movement in the bolt. Also I had visually checked both the hole and the bushing last weekend and...

Thank you! I didn't think so but all the articles I read and videos I watched were doing it. I don't have the parts to do that so I'm happy I don't have to.

I have a quick question, when I remove the axle shaft do I have to change the diff fluid? Or can I do it without changing the fluid?

Before I go and order a new TRE, is there anyway I could tell if it is, in fact, an issue with the TRE? And not just the hole being over sized?

Holton,

Thank you for your input, this is what I was hoping for. I knew it didn't seem right that I could screw it that far down. This is the first vehicle that I've attempted to do my own work...

That was my thought exactly. If I'm already removing the knuckle to replace it doesn't seem like much of a leap to do the ball joints while I'm there. Although, at this point I would assume I...
