Raise it off the ground and check side to side for wobble, than check for top to bottom wobble.

Might be a broken belt in the tire. Might be a warped rotor. Might be something else. When do you notice it? Driving or braking? Have you raised it off the ground and spun it around?

This picture was taken at an event at my parents’ house.  Mother had a jewelry show and we decided to use the Eagle to keep people from seeing the clutter against the shop.

I factory reset my phone, so, no more pictures. But!

The trans is out of the donor. I'm not going to go through the hassle of separating the transfer case from the trans. So next step is get the trans/transfer case out of mine, and swap in the "new" one.
Front drive question. Ive got wiggle in my drivers side front tire. Where should I be looking for issues?
Body Shop / Re: Cracked Liftgate Hinge
« Last post by MIPS on November 10, 2019, 06:58:55 PM »
This is something the previous owner of my Eagle did that does help significantly reduce the outwards load on the hinges. The main bolts are too far back for the thickness of the metal and the load stress will doom them all to fail eventually unless you permanently close the hatch.

He drilled two new holes straight through the hinges and through the body and ran new bolts through. My passenger hinge is cracking, but it's old. After this fix was installed it looks like the fatigue stopped.

This is likely not a perfect repair for already broken hinges but it should go a long way to help partially cracked hinges from failing completely.
