    shake @ 65 to 73 mph

    Indeed, go from what touches the ground in. Check your tires. A good way is to find a tire service place that has a road force machine to check both tires and rims... is a type. After that, lift your rig so the whole suspension assembly can hang free from the ground...

    20 inch 100 spokes

    Spokes aint that bad, just get the right kind of spokes, and the right kind of tires. Too low-pro and it looks like ****. These are O.G. Wire Wheels - 150 spoke... 100s will bust on you in due time cause of weight... and Lexani LX9000 high-performance tires at 295 40 20... the width and little...

    Need opinion on shocks for 95 Limited...

    I got an oil change, alignment, all four shocks installed, and a tranny service for 391. I went with the monroe sensa-track light truck shocks and noticed MAJOR stability compared to the shot stock shocks. They are firm on casual road driving and give petty well offroad (light). I recommend them.

    Squeek....Where to look?

    I spent forever tracking down a squeeek and found it was a long zip tie in the rear wheel well rubbing on the tire going squeek squeek. Plastic on rubber, but the sound was amplified on the metal it was connected to.

    Grinding Noise in Left Front???

    I have the grinding when moving only. I have yet to do exploratory surgery, but thought I would continue in this thread since the title matches the symptom perfectly! So, when moving at a very slow pace, the sound is moderate, definitely audible in the cab. Funny, but it reminds me of the sound...

    Cheap local rebuild for my A4LD?

    Cheap isnt best, take it from experience... 3 a4lds down the road. The last one was built for me at a cost of 2200... Welded planetary, shift kit, HD parts, better torque converter, etc... even repainted the case and bell housing. Still going strong after 2 years, needed one adjustment...

    I tracked some horrible sound down to zipties close to the tire. Get under there and look behind the wheel. There are zip ties that hold a cover on in there. It its close to the tire, thats your noise.

    Switching To Amsoil Synthetic

    Im switching to full synthetic today on a 2k 5.0 XLT... I will let you know if I get any leaks... but there isnt any true feasable reason why synthetic would leak from something that held conventional.

    Finally!!! Bought a 5.0 XLT... Bring on the MODS!!!!

    So Ive been rolling my sweet White 93 Limited with that 4.0 for years. I went thru 3 trannies, replaced EVERYTHING twice under the hood as far as bolt-on components. That ***** is STILL running like a champ at 181K miles :) Okay, so I never got rid of the clunk from the suspension and it was...
