    I need someone with D60 experience to help me figure out this d@mn noise I have had. In reverse, and steering full-lock to the right, there is a funky bumping/rubbing noise. Hit the GO pedal and the noise gets real ugly. The noise can be heard loud and clear in the cab, but not so much outside on the street.

    There is also some kinda clunking noise under moderate cornering... I just don't want to drop the truck on its nose when I loose a wheel or some crap.

    One thing I do notice is downwards play in the passenger side knuckle. If you jack it up, the lower part of the knuckle seperates by 1/4"... but there is no play in camber. I can grab the tire and give it hell, but it stays still.

    If anyone in the area wanted to come by for a Sat or Sun and give me a hand, I would certainly have more than enough beer to keep them happy!!! [​IMG]

    Anyone nearby?

    EDdaTREE- Can you at least fetch wrenches? [​IMG] You'd have to turn 'em too if you're expecting some beer!

    And YES, IL is South of Lake Michigan, which is West of Indiana... which is further from Ohio. Sorry! [​IMG]
