I know it is short notice but after work today I'm going to take apart my front diff and see what's up w/ it. Pretty sure the pinion bearing is bad. Hoping my gears aren't damaged. Planning on starting around 4 p.m. Will order some pizza if anyone can lend a hand for a couple hours. Located in Miami. PM me for address if you can make it.
Thanks

A big thanks goes out to TallJeep for lending a hand. Once he FINALLY ( :whistle: ) figured out how to get to my house he fixed a problem I've had w/ my steering wheel having lots of play. There are 4 screws that hold the tilt wheel tight to the column. 2 of mine were backed out and the other 2 were very loose. I found a good write-up w/ lots of pics HERE

On the front diff I pulled out the axle shafts. I spun the ring and pinion gears around several times and they look to be fine. The pinion definately has play in it though. Going to pop out the carrier today and see if I can get the pinion out. Also noticed the upper ball joint was bad so I'll replace them both since I already have everything apart. :2thumup:

Special mention also goes out to Lrd Jeffson for taking the time to drive over to the house to let me know he wouldn't be able to make it. :cheers: :1thumb: :unsure:
