Blizzard Of Ozz
Winthrop Harbor, IL
Replaced both lower ball joints and was told that the "steering shaft" is shot, and that would cost me easily $200 to repair, then the alignment can be done correctly.
I was told that my transfer case may be failing (trans issue?), due to the truck "shuddering" and shaking in turns, moving forward or in reverse. In a straight line (forward or reverse), it does not shake.
In turns when reversing or moving forward, the truck shakes and "shudders." It is fine going in a straight line either way. I was told by my mechanic that this may be a transfer case problem, but he said he is not a "Trans Guy." Can I drive it a little while longer before this needs immediate attention or can I drive it another 2K or so, to save up some $$. The truck has just over 162K on it, and I don't think there was any transmission problems before this.
