    ok, this weekend Emmett started making a funky steering creaking sound. I have laid under it while I had my bro turn the wheel and the box moves a little, but the are no visible cracks. It sounds llike it is coming from the from spring. i looked around to see if there were any loose crossmembers or crack in othe rplaces but I found nothing. It is almost like a binding/popping noise...

    My bro and I both looked under it it seems like it is coming from the spring, but the u-bolts are tight. I am wondering if I broke another spring center pin?

    Any ideas?

    Mike

    That was one of my thoughts...... I have some extra ones, so I will have to open it up and see.

    Thanks.
