Check your rear bushings! They may be real loose! I may be able to swing down tonight and take a look.

ditto, and if the bushing is new than check the bolt (it rusts and gets pitted). I have a few extra bolts and bushings and I'm heading up to ME tomorrow morning, let me know if you want me to drop them off.

Well it turn out to be my first thought,the front wheel bearing.Just had them take it in the workshop to check.Up on the lift its easier to check than just jacking in the driveway.Now all i got to do is get it fixed before Saturday morning.At leased i know its nothing serious.

Panhard rod bushing:

I recently had a vertical bounce in the front of the 110 when going over any good sized bump. Well, the bushings were shot because the PO replaced the bolts with threaded rod!!!!!

...and I've been driving it for a few months like that.

Idiot!!!

Jimmy I really think you need new spindles up front, when I did the front bearings on it the old bearings slid off but I had to pound then new one's on, and the bearings were a good brand too. I think your spindles are messesd up from all the mud that was in them when I pulled them off.
