well since it dosent appear as though people are flocking to assist you, honestly its far from rocket science to be able to use a meter there are only two types of circuits, loads, and switches do some reading and searching and you should be able to get a grasp on it

Well good thing about Florida all the sun toughens you're skin as you'res seems to be paper thin. Its really just that my generation tends to seek advise than accepts the challenge of figuring it out themselves

May I remind you how you accept the challenge of figuring it out your self?


"death wobble parts list and suggested vendors

howdy, my son who drives my 98 xj with almost 320,000 miles has informed me it just started having death wobble. I am a truck driver and cant be there to actually look at the vehicle so i think i just want to replace all the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]front [COLOR=blue !important]end[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] parts that could be causing it. I have no idea what the ages of the exsisting parts are i just know nothing has been done to it since i got it with 285,000 miles almost 10 years ago

So Im looking for a suggested list of parts to replace along with the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]part [COLOR=blue !important]numbers[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] if anyone has them. In addition if anyone has a particular vendor that has good prices id be interested in getting that too

ive also thought of replacing the hubs as well and think i remember reading that i can buy the axle [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]shafts[/COLOR][/COLOR] with the ujoints already installed so those part numbers would be helpful too

And just for the hell of it if anyone knows a reputable shop that they trust in the Jacksonville FL. area post it up.

thanks for reading and any help you can offer...ken "

PS: My skin is just fine and I'm not bothered by you one bit. I met some new people that live close by. I learned a few new tricks. Even had a few laughs .

But I do understand where your coming from If I was back in Jacksonville FL I wouldn't want to know my neighbors.

Man it didn't bother me a bit. I got some PMs..

After his first post I posted this

"thanks kennzz05 for the information that is my option Im looking for someone close to Asheboro NC who knows what there doing to help me out because your in FL I don't figure you can be of help but thanks for your post anyway. "

Where I said thanks twice that's 2x.

My original question was (Is there anyone close to Asheboro with a Electrical Tester ?) I understand it may have been a confusing question for some and I apologize for that.

If I have a specific question I will post it in the tech section where I will be great-full for any help or suggestions I may get.

But because I didn't know what to check / how to check/ or with what to check it with-- I was looking for someone from my area. Thus the reason I posted it in the regional area and the reason I posted the question (Is there anyone close to Asheboro with a Electrical Tester ?).

So once again let me say Thank You for the reply to my post

PS Im no longer looking for someone in Asheboro we got it taken care of. But if I ever need someone in the FL or VA area I will know I need to post for help in Asheboro.

Im not trying to be a d**K.

I guess you missed the part where I said I'm a truck driver and I'm not at home I'm only home once every 3 months,hence the request for a shop suggestion. You say you're not trying to be a Dick but you clearly have a smartass attitude in saying that if you ever need help in va or fl. You'll post in the ashboro section.and you're initial responce was also condescending. What you could have said was thanks for the suggestion but I've never used a meter and don't know anything about electrical, and I'm just not comfortable trying this on my own. You chose a much different approach. Its like I offended you simply because I wasn't able to come do it for you and I had the nerve to waste you're valuable time by offerings a completely useless reply. Hugs and kisses:-*

Really? you want to keep this going?

Look at it this way. It would be like me replying to your post and saying (truck stops have wifi and you have a computer it would be easier for you to do your own research during a reset or your down time. Or some truck stops have data centers where you can use the computer there.)

But that wouldn't have answered your question or helped you out. Would it have?

C where Im going here?

My question was simple and straightforward (Is there anyone close to Asheboro with a Electrical Tester ?)

your reply (there like 10 bucks for a cheepie one and YouTube can provide the training)

Does not answer my question or help in any way.

But someone in Asheboro did they showed me how to use it and what to check. I didn't ask anyone to do it for me. again the question was simple. (Is there anyone close to Asheboro with a Electrical Tester ?)
