Re: Front Axle Shaft Problem

Problem solved, I was about to take out the axle out of my spare WJ and noticed the tie rod was shaped differently than the new one I put in my Jeep. The tie rod is for the right side but it's for the steering sleeve, not the toe adjustment sleeve. When I ordered that tie rod no questions were asked what sleeve it was for and I didn't know enough to mention what sleeve it was for. Went to the parts store and picked up the correct tie rod and now there no rubbing....
