Bent rear axle shaft?
Help me out wrangler forum i think i might have a bent rear axle shaft.
about a month ago my rear brakes were squeaking really bad on the passenger side. I replaced the rear pads and rotors and saw that the passenger side rotor was worn way more than the driver side so i also replaced the passenger side caliper because i thought it was sticking.
just the other day I was riding with my doors off and noticed a quiet squeaking coming from the rear passenger side wheel. and it only squeaks at a certain point in the rotation of the wheel, like 1/4 turn squeak then 3/4 turn no squeak.
I took a look at both rear brake rotors and noticed slightly more wear on the passenger side rotor.
also, this might not be related, but i am getting a slight wobble at 80+ mph.
could this be a bent rear axle shaft?
if so how can i be sure it is a bent shaft?
and what brand rear axle shafts do y'all run?
