    Sold this yesterday in under 24 hours of listing. I lost a whole lot more faith in humanity after having to deal with Facesack Marketplace Mongs.

    Noticed a slight clunk a week ago...a few days later the CV joint on the front driveshaft out of the transfer case was toast. The rubber boot seemed to be gone some time ago.
    In a surpise the CV is identical to a BA or BF XR6T or XR8 one that mounts to front of the diff. Same seller has them for $40 less for the Falcon than when listed for a Jeep....

    My dad used to say the same thing to me, about 35yrs ago regarding fuel injection, power steering etc in 4WDs..

    Fuck all been happening on this shtburger.
    Snapped the handbrake cable last week with my brute force. Expected to get hit with Massive Jeep tax on it. $13.99 later on Rock Auto and its sorted.
    Even with the Beer Virus only 8 days delivery from U S of A. Happy days.

    So i did the "Kidney bean mod" that seems to be the go for everyone with this motor whether in a 300C or Mercedes or Jeep.
    Basically this black plastic Kidney bean is an inlet muffler thats mounted between the Turbo and intercooler designed to gentrify the intake noise...
    It also creates more lag. So that perforated bulit pops out and away you go. It definitely comes onto boost a bit quicker and s9ne people claim better fuel economy so not bad for an hours work.

    No need to yell at him, just let him know and I bet you never have another issue because he will remember it every time he sees a car of yours.

    So since i did the lift there has been a slight knock in the front left that has slowly been getting worse and a couple of potholes whilst on the recent roadtrip sounded rather shite.
    After i did the lift i got a wheel alignment done by a place ive been using for years and have a great reputation. The Wheel alignment dude is about 6ft 7 and about 150 kilos and not a fat cunt.
    However on this Saturday morning he seemed to manage to leave all my bolts loose......The lower control arm has a bolt that is meant to slide to do the alignment, yep you guessed it loose.o the LC arm was able to bang from one side to another making a racket the hole time.
    Fuck me how hard is it to do up the bolts after doing an alignment when thats all you do!

    Happy as fuck now though. Should i send a sternly worded letter or just assume he had a big friday night and move on?

    Been doing a central west loop around Dubbo, Parkes,Cowra and the ACT the last week. Loaded up to the shithouse and whatvseems like neverending hills has seen the economy go out to 19 liters per hundred but towing like a champ.

    Relaxing trip away and can report the bags are awesome. Car drives much nicer sitting level instead of bum dragging.
