Well, for those of you who knew I was in England, I'm not anymore. My
truck and I are now in Australia.
Damn truck. Got it back today, went through Australian inspection and
it FAILED! He said the right tie rod was "worn" bad enough to be "not
roadworthy". They also noticed a differential leak (have yet to look at
this and see if it's just the mess left behind by the last change).
Damn. Do either of these sound like high $$ fixes? Are there any
other, related items (like the left tie rod, which passed) that I should
have the Chrysler mechanic have a look at?
Not surprisingly, the 4th isn't a holiday here, so it'll be fixed that
day. Guy at the dealership didn't think parts would be an issue. Hope
he's right or I'll be asking Mike for help again :)
Didn't someone tell me that the click I started to sometimes feel in the
steering wheel could be a tie rod?
Anyway, we're quite enjoying the abundant sunshine and pleasantly cool
temperatures here (it's winter here). We only escaped the east coast
just in time, we were in DC and in Upstate NY; the flood pictures are
amazing, I've never seen flooding in that area like that before!
Anybody from around there?
