Re: Vari-Lok Axles?

When you make sharp turns you also donīt feel/hear anything abnormal?
If you would drive a Vari-Loc diff without the FM, you probably put more stress to the Vari-Loc and the front drive train, but only when making sharp turns. Donīt know if it would harm the diff, maybe over a long time. But when you avoid sharp turns for now, it should be ok.

Re: Vari-Lok Axles?

I got the WJ about a month ago, but no I don't feel anything in the steering wheel binding or anything that is noticeable. When I picked up the truck I asked about the FM and my mechanic told me to drive it and it felt fine.

I wonder if things are either worn out or if jeep was hiding something on these early models. I see my build date on the sticker was in 1998 I think I'll have to look again. The mechanic said everything looked good inside the diffs. Hmm, maybe it's the steering that is all worn out as you mention that will get strained, which part of the suspension system? I now the steering stabilizer is still original so I'm going to look at replacing that in the near future.
