My SSE is dying
I have a 93 SSE Supercharger bonneville and over the last 2-3 months it developed a steady vibration in the front end. you can clearly hear it inside the car a feel the soft vibration through the steering wheel. I had a bad driver axle and fixed that yesterday hoping that was the cause of the noise, and while trying to pull it out of the tranny I noticed it had a lot of play when it was fully inserted into the tranny. Instead of feeling tight like I am usd to it was sloppy, and the other side was about the same.
So I have come to the conclusion, its the output shaft bearings and I bet the differential bearings arn't any better. Anyone know how hard it would be to fix them?
I am kind of in a predicament with this car, sofar I still have less than $1500 into the car since I baught it last year, it has about 190k ion it now. I don't think its really worth fixing but the wife loves it and wonth let me get of it unless I get another similar car. But the problme is we can bairly pay the bills as it is, yet afford to get another car.
I wilsh this were the only problem with it but I also need to replace the supercharger, shocks and struts are shot, rear air suspension leaked really bad and was unhooked, has a couple sensors out, becasue it has a dead spot around 1500-2200 rpm when the car is cold, and runs funny some times when hot. Also has a cracked rear exhaustr manifold and a few small cosmetic things.
But its a nice rust free car, has nice paint, new tires, perfect grey leather, all options work.
So I don't know what to do.
