I have a 92 S10 that rattles from underneath when I drive around town. It
sounds like something loose underneath that is clunking around. Sometimes
it sounds like it's up front, then back.
I noticed if I lightly apply the brakes and continue to drive, it is 95%
gone. Once I let up on the brakes it's back.
It has all new ball joints, idler arm, pitman arm, front end alignment and
torsion bar mounts.
PS Has new shocks on the front, old ones used to do that if not tightened
down enough. Rears have not been replaced yet.
I just checked the pads and they are about 60% left. The rotors are a
little wavy. On the surface that is. When you apply the brakes they are
smooth, no shaking.
Would U-Joints rattle around a bunch like this sound does? The more little
bumps you hit themore it makes.
heck yeah-- got the Wagoneer Dana 44's sitting on the back porch. My
last task to do is to get some 86 CJ rear shackle hangers, and weld up
the front crossmember for my spring hanger, and after that I've got to
remove the front chunk <and all the plumbing for the remote-mount oil
filter, so I can put it where it belongs- on the block!>, control
arms, and torsion bars, and bolt up the front diff. Weld on some new
spring perches on the rear axle and slap the rear 44 in, and I'm
golden. Waggy brake lines will bolt up to the hardline, Waggy front
driveshaft will work just fine, and the steering will be taken care of
with a piece of 1.5" DOM and a little tap action for the pitman to
Probably the only part I wil have to farm out is the rear driveshaft--
the little bit of research I've done leads me to believe that it'll
need a 1310 tcase yoke and whatever yoke is on the D44... so I'll go
ahead and go with a SYE kit on the Tcase while I'm in there and get
the slip shaft moved to where it belongs- the driveshaft.
