Do you have to worry about alignment after going offroading? Just curious...
yeah, it was front wheel drive...how'd you know? i'm guessing the whole alignment deal might not be worth it with our trucks?outlnder said:I would bet your old car was front wheel drive.
Some shops will sell an unlimited alignment deal. They are expensive, but not as expensive as getting an alignment done every 6 months.
I got one from a Goodyear shop for $295. Sometimes I went in once a month. Other times only once every 6 months. It really paid for itself.
well 4x4's with independent front suspenion do have cv joints. the transfer case is selectible gear reduction system.outlnder said:Front wheel drive vehicles are notorious for being out of alignment. Since the power wheels are also the steering wheels, they get tweaked very easily. The mechanism is rather fragile.
Fortunately, a 4x4 vehicle has a transfer case and not a CV joint. This allows power and steering without the fragility of front wheel drive vehicles.
outlnder can you post a pic of your front driveline? only one u-joint? 8O doesnt sound right to me. i would like to see what your looking at. 8)outlnder said:Jojo, where is a CV joint? I know mine has one Universal joint, but I haven't seen a CV joint anywhere.
Sorry about that, I was referring to right after the differential. I did not include the one at the wheel.outlnder can you post a pic of your front driveline? only one u-joint?
