    This is exactly what I heard after I just recently replaced my tensioner, and its belt squeak. Shot WD on the flat of the belt and it instantly disappeared. So for me at least, its NOT a bearing.

    Replaced steering rack bushings today. Took wayyyy longer than I thought it would. What a fight on that driver side bushing holy hell. Then this evening after it was all “done” I spotted a washer in the driveway. I forgot the damn washer behind the driver side bushing. Now tomorrow I get to take it all apart and slide that washer in. Fml

    I just want to say: You're not the first person to make similar mistakes. Others have installed the washers backwards. It happens, don't beat yourself up too bad.

    Next time you're in ATL you can help me change mine :D

    it is almost and I mean almost, I’ve done a lot of wrenching, but getting that damn drivers side bushing out was a pain in the ass. Also putting the bearing sleeve in wasn’t as easy as it should have been either. I had to make a bearing press from Home Depot and I still mushroomed the sleeve a bit, besides forgetting the washer. It was not fun in the driveway

    not to mention using the stupid stock jack on a 2x6” all the way extended

    Alright I can’t hold it in any longer. Almost done. Final touches tomorrow and I’ll post documented pics rather than a teaser haha.

    yea I tried doing rear shocks today too with my bushings. Realized I need a nut splitter for the passenger side since the nut is seized. Damn these old trucks are fun

    That’s always rough. Can’t be worse than the LCA bushing sleeve!

    What I’m doing requires custom fitting. Haha

    I also blame energy suspensions instructions as they only show one washer on the rack

    Have used tube on an end of mechanics ears careful not to get caught in belt or fan to help diagnose where the noise is coming from if only when engine running.

    Yep. This ^^^. Super fast, easy, and safe to check when motor not running.

    Don't feel bad, had I not known an eclipse was going on I would have thought it was just slightly overcast. It wasn't that dramatic at all.

    I spent 30 minutes just listening (with the solid stick) under the hood. I think my wife thought i lost my mf mind. Used the cone for honing in on my exhaust manifold leak. Yep, pretending I don't hear it for now :anonymous:
