Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

This is just a simple case of having a 4 wheel ,wheel alignment .
Take your trooper down to the wheel alignment shop and ask for a 4 wheel alignment .
After any front end repair, a wheel alignment should be done .

Hello Greg sorry its me again just got back from the garage rear wheels cannot be adjusted but the fronts were miles out must have hit a real big pot hole 4wdrive light is still on but garage says its only in two and the vibration is still very noticeable they don't know what puts light on and off .I know they say you should not phone but I think you can put some letters in front of your number so I cant see it would be so much easier to talk on the phone

Hi Dennis .

If you have still a vibration in the front end then recheck the shaft you fitted was balance correctly and that you don't have misaligned U joints..
To check if this is the problem remove the prop and test drive with out then let me know if you still have the vibration still .
