So I left to drive to Virginia 10/22. I get about half way there (Washington Court House, Ohio) and the front end locks up and she pops out of second gear.... (Luckily I was exiting the highway to refuel) Something MAJORLY wrong with the front end. Had a heck of a time putting it onto a flat-bed that I rented from UHaul, as you could push it maybe a couple inched then it would bind.... This is with the front propshaft remove. Then pop she would let go. Obviously either a broken axle or chewed up ring and pinion.
First question, with the front propshaft removed, why can't i at least have rear-wheel drive? If I'm supposed to, then I'm really screwed... haha Not really to funny.
So I get it home, unload it and I'm ready to start pulling it apart. Put it up on jacks and start pulling the tires..... dang, stupid wheel locks with the four holes (unlike the newer ones). Start digging all over the d90 for the key and.... no go. I have no key to get the sucky lock off!!!
Second question, How can i get this dang thing off? Are all 90s keyed alike, or will i have to go to the dealer and order on for my particular vehicle? If they are keyed alike is there anyone in chicago that has one of these stinkin keys? My rangie doesn't even have locks like this.... Or does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get it off, without messing up my alloys?
All and all, it's turned out to be a ridiculously expensive trip and i didn't even get to where i was going...
On a brighter note, I'll probably be putting in 4:10 gears and ARB lockers....
