Thanx, Robby. Yes, I saw a picture and apparently I need a bushing. No idea how to get to it without a major tranni dismantling.
I did read a post about 80-85 shimmy (from yesterday). It could be rotors, but no other indication of rotor problems.
Yes, WD-40 fixed the squeak in the spring, but is it normal????
I'm due for a 155K maintenance (i.e. 30K check up), so I'll mention the flex disc to the mech, but they supposed to check it anyway.
I know about tire brands mixing, but had no problems before.
l was afraid that the steering wheel freeplay may be due to the worn gearbox.
The leak from the AC would infuriate me after spending $700 on parts, replacement, and conversion. I'll call the place I've got it from
Thanx for your help!!!!
