Re: WtB snap on ball joint press BJP1

I've changed a few sets with the OTC tools and never had any issue.

Re: WtB snap on ball joint press BJP1

You can sometimes get loaner tools from your local AutoZone
These tools are expensive,and hard to justify buying them for such infrequent use

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170914/1c8d129e8084478a7ffff0002b478f02.jpg Yeah, I'm assuming the Wagon wheels just have a much more pronounced lip. Which is awesome for a stock wheel. The factory wheels have that lip on the inside as well. Hummer H2 wheels are made the same way,but are 1/2 inc...

Re: SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME- front axle binding

Best educated guess...front axle u-joints.
Are they the originals???
You can't move them enough in the axle to see if they're bad.
I had the same steering issue you described on my '05 Cummins and I replaced the joints and it was fine afterward

Re: Front King 2.5"s?

You could get a set of front/rear Overlands for $300 to tide you over until you can afford all 4 Kings at once.
I've had them on mine for over a year,around 35k miles and 2 trips to Moab on them.They work extremely well in all kinds of terrain.
I'll be swapping to Kings soon(on order)
