Re: Aftermarket ball joints?

I have Dynatrac ball joints on my truck. I got 10 years and them for 150k miles out of them before I rebuild them last summer. The lowers where a little loose the uppers were still tight. I put a fair amount of hard off road driving on them and them and they held up very well, I highly recommend them.

Re: 3rd Gen Winch Causing Parasitic Drain on Battery

I ended up taking my truck to another shop that specializes in auto electronics, I left it overnight, they ran a test for a parasitic drain and everything was within spec. I have been working from home and not driving much since COVID started, lots of very short trips and I think I just killed my ba...

Congrats on the order! The 75th anniversary comes with the factory rock-sliders which haven't been available since the 3rd Gen model trucks which is a nice bonus.

Re: AAM ball joints.

I have Dynatrac ball joints in my truck. After about 140k miles I rebuilt them, tops were still tight bottoms were loose. For about $195 you can get the rebuild kit for all four ball joints and do the work without having to remove them from the axle, very pleased with this product.

Re: 2013 5.7 PW running like crap...

Hello Allgonoshow,

I think you might be right about the cam and the lifters being badly worn or damaged unfortunately the only way to know for sure is to remove them and take a look.

George at 8lug still the place for spicer joints? Anyone have the part numbers? And any insight on what gets rebuilt on the double cardan? Thanks Go...

Re: 2006 Power Wagon ball joint bore

Those large gash marks look strange, perhaps something was wedged in there to get the ball joints out. The small vertical lines indicate knurled ball joints were previously used so you will need to use them again, smooth sided ball joints won't hold. The install should be fine, if the ball joints ar...

Re: Noticed my 2019 universal joints dont have clips 2019?

My 07 had the same thing with at least some u-joints, it simplifies manufacturing and saves money for parts suppliers. It does not affect longevity but as mentioned rebuilding them is a pain.

Re: Lost all gears while driving, transfer case?

Go the truck back on Saturday. Once they got it apart they found that the seal around the pump was leaking, it had been that way for 2-3 years because it made a very slight whining sound, it finally came out and lost all pressure. At 185k miles with nothing ever done to the transmission since 2007 w...
