yup, sounds like i spun a bearing. was trying to limp her through the winter but she didn't make it. luckily the builder i work for owns a dinky little used car lot. unlukily all he had i could use for work was a repoed 90 burb that has major electrical hackage and lots of neglected maintainance. so 2 grand later (finaced by him cause i piss pour) i have a lovely new headache in the driveway. so, time for you guys to help out. i want suggestion on what to do with ol blue. here are her stats: the good: 76 long bed 3/4 ton running gear (was 1/2 ton) new seal, bearings and ball joints up front, new brakes in the rear, newer th350 that shifts great, fluid nice and pink, newer 208 t case new cab mounts new front and rear drivelines 2" lift with new Roughcountry shocks the bad: minor dents in every fender needs carpet stock steeles with pizza cutters bad motor here is a pic before it was lifted. it has slightly better tires now too... slightly so i can't decide if i want to swap the axles under my burb (keep in mind its a work rig and not a wheeler) part it out, sell it whole as is for like 700 bucks, or just cry in my beer. i've already undertaken the last option just to be safe.
