finally went to get an alignment
so i took it in the get an alignment that my parents agreed to pay for because of my good grades. Im not an honor student so my 3.5 was pretty good and they didnt wanna see my new tires ruined as thye are already feathered. so anywasy i take it in for a $50 alignment. they call and say that they cant change it because my balljoints are bad. so i get there to pick it up and call around for some estimates. and i get a list.
trans fluid dirty
power stearing fluid dirty
marker light out
real axle seal leak
but what makes this all bad was i bought it two monthes ago and somehow it passed inspection with all of this wrong.
so i changed my oil (1000) miles late and look at my (2 month old) air filter and sure enough theres some oil residue so i change my oil airfilter and pcv valve and take it to the mechanic. everything parts and labor $900 all new brakes, new tranny fluid, power steering fluid, ball joints (upper/lower), alignment, real axle seal, new diff fluid, fuel filter. not bad at all i guess for all the work and it was all done in two days. now just to pay my parents back for fronting the money. sorry for the long rant just thought ide share that i finally had the ball joint issue everyone talks about. really makes me feel like a ranger owner now.
