    I am just about done

    So, So far It does not seem to be the mounts or the Jack shaft. I think I am going to drop the front drive shaft and take it for a test drive and see if that is where the noise is coming from. And I always wear safety glasses, just from the rust, junk and dirt that falls off into my face all...

    Check that the nuts are all tight and it is not sloppy, it was a brand new Jack shaft because the old one was missing a cap.

    Rear Hub Service and How much Grease to use.

    I was sorta worried, I did 2 and I packed the bearings on one and the next I put some extra in the wheel cavity. LOL Tactical Repair that is the only channel that showed the whole process. But in the 2 part on rear hub he skips over how much he put in the hubs. Love that Guy!
