    Do I have a transfer case problem?
    I had Jeep recall to get rear arms replaced. Shop: transfer case fluids looked bad;$240 fix. Me: just do recall. Now: growling noise at slow speeds, turning. Did they do something to transfer case?

      No idea, take a fluid sample out of it. The fluid should be ATF+4 (transmission oil) You had none of these sounds before the recall was done?

    What would be wrong to make my right front tire on the outside bald?
    I don't think it's the alignment because the wheel will stay straight.

      Sevaeral possibilities; wheel out-of-alignment, faulty / worn wheel bearing, faulty / worn suspension component, faulty / worn steering component - such as tie rod end. You cannot rule out the alignment as a potential cause until the wheel alignment is checked and verified.

      There are many online stores, some have categories for specific items in Jeeps while others are more general. I like visiting because they provide a wider range of sites for various manufacturers. I get free shipping plus discounts. Online stores are good.

      There is no database that exists among mechanics that would be able to compile a list of vehicles using the same part number springs. But, a quick check in alldata states that the part # of the front leaf springs remained the same from 83 to '91 on Grand Wagoneer. In case you do not know this.., you can remove your springs and take them to a truck spring shop and have them re-arced / rebuilt and they will be like new.

    How do I remove the ignition lock cylinder?
    I am trying to replace the turn signal switch, and cant get the ignition lock cylinder out of the steering collum.

      The Jeep steering column is the same as a Chevy back then. The steering wheel, lockplate, have to be removed to get down to where you can access the turn signal switch. why do you need to remove the ignition lock cylinder? It does not restrict you from replacing the turn signal switch. But, if you do have to remove it was made two different ways. One has a retaining screw that is accessed from in by the turn signal switch and the other way if there is no retaining screw there u=is a specific procedure with pictures. You must get the book with the step by step and pics. No other way or you will break something. This is not a walk in the park and you will depend heavily on the step by step description and the accompanying pictures.

      You can remove an ignition lock cylinder with relative ease. Start by taking off the steering wheel column covers and then you have access to the lock cylinder. You may need a special tool to bypass the anti-theft fasteners, which hold the lock cylinder in place and get more details from

      I think your exhaust system could have gone loose. Probably the clamps holding it together have become loose or if it is welded they have worn off. Why don't you have them checked? You can tighten the exhaust pipes or if they have been through many miles replace it with a new exhaust system. You can see these kits as

      I don't know but a front end alignment guy could inspect this. First have the front tires fully inspected and wheels by a tire guy.

      Put tires in back at front and vise versa. In other words rotate the tires and see if this helps or vibration changes.
