[QUOTE=Rugbier;215904]Michael,

That what I was going to do ( as soon as she arrives home ) no sense on me getting it now ( unless it is on the way ).

And again ..that was awesome of your Dad..to bring it down

Just paying it forward, I have someone helping me with an ARB.

Not a problem at all I will tuck it in the back of the garage. Let me know when she arrives.
Of course traditional Gustavo holding fees applies.

Charles I might, I am having a small issue ( similar to the one at Rousch Creek ) , I can't keep it straight on the hwy over 35mph, my steering has a dead wobble of almost a 1/4 turn.

I know Trevor and Jarek did some tighten of the steering arm, I might attempt the same.
I can get any idiots around me to do an alignment ( and for the life of me I can do it ).

Wanna come to Towson MD? *LOL*

When it's sitting stationary, can you move the steering wheel that much?

I'm no expert but it sounds like a balancing or alignment issue to me if you don't feel any play while sitting still. Does it smooth out at higher speeds?

Balancing is good.

Alignment was great before I park it.

My guess is flat spoted tires from months of sitting. You didn't touch the steering so why you would now have play is a mystery.

also check your tire pressure. I had this problem last year to find that the tires were just really low.. Put air in and got them back to 34lbs and all was perfect again...

Found the mistery
When we did the Diff Guard, we removed the track rod, then we put it back in place and got derailed to other things , we forgot to tighten the damn thing.

Thanks for all the answers

LOL. I was about to tell you to check all the bolts since I know you made suspension changes.

You guys have me worried. Why don't you borrow Janey for your trip, and Wolf can ride shotgun. I'd feel much better about things.

It's okay Goose, I miss the "cute blue one" (my wife's words by the way). I have cautioned my wife and son to never use the words "cute" and "Land Rover" in the same sentence ever again.
