    Hope you don't mind me picking your brain with a question about your post. I'm working on replacing the front axle bearings on my 2002 F250 and found your post on ujoints. I'm at the reassembly stage, and I can't get the clip ring on the axle on top of the washer stack. I'm worried that maybe I didn't seat the seal on the axle deep enough, even though I felt the hammer rebounding and things were no longer moving. I've tried prying forward with a pry bar, and even tapped on the back of the ujoint just a little. I got it to move some, but I still lack about 0.050", about the thickness of one washer. Any idea? Here is a link to a couple of pictures which makes me question the seating depth:

    I read the you had a detailed post for hub replacement, Would you be so kind as top forward that to me? I am getting ready to replace the right side front hub on my 02 f-250 4x4, lifted with 37's, v-10.
    Thanks, Sean

    Hey Racer,
    I had my ball joints replaced at a shop and ever since I've had a problem with the steering return and wandering. I was checking out your post about ball joint replacement and saw what you wrote about the return and wandering, just wanted to see if they could have installed them incorrectly or if it could be something else going on

    I'm a newbie here to the site. I followed your instructions on spark plug replacement on our 2004 Ford Escape the other day. Put new upper gaskets in the intake manifold as recommended too. The vehicle will start immediatley and then start chugging and popping and does not want to idle. If I press the gas pedal it seems to smooth out at higher rpms. I could barely get it out of my garage. I decided to take a spin around the block...same thing..when coming to a stop sign it would cough and chug and I also noticed that I hardly had any brakes?? I had to stand on the pedal with both feet!! Seemed to run fine under a constant speed?? I think I put the vacuum lines back where they were to go?? What are your thoughts?? This is very discouraging...thanks for any wits end.

    Im new to the site, though i have been reading posts for years. I like your post about ball joint and u-joint replacements, though i have one question that has me stumped in the middle of the process of doing the job, I first had to put the truck ( a 2003 f350 with manual locking hubs) in 4x4 before getting into the garage. once in the garage i disengaged the 4x4 and unlocked the hubs. when i got to the step to pull hub out of assembly, i took the ring lock off, yet the hub will not budge, i have used a rubber hammer and pry bar to attemt to start it out but nothing. I then used a small hammer which broke the end of the hub, also the other side will not budge either, any help would be great, do you think that they may be froze in or locked up ? thank you

    Hello I am trying to make sense of the Air bag error 27 info. I have removed the module from the dash and find a miniature light bulb. Some posts say an LED or a very large diode or a light bulb, one said he measured 12VDC. Need to know before I repair as some very poor results may occur if the smoke escapes from the circuit Thx Larry

    I'm brand-new to this forum and read all 13 pages of your posts about replacing upper/lower ball joints----Here is my problem----my son's truck 2002 Ford F-150 4X4 has a problem,,,the passenger side tire appears to lean in slightly at the top,,,,and the upper tierod end is slightly rubbing against the tire. The local dealer advised $750.00 & a new steering knuckle MIGHT fix it. What do you think?

    Hey RG...I was reading a post you made about ball joints. I just bought a 03' f-250 7.3 and the dealer said everything looked good except the ball joints need to be replaced. When I drive it, it likes to wander and has poor steering wheel return. Does this usally indicate the ball joints are too tight...or need relacing?
