Now, don't tell me something is not wrong here.
That'* how they look from the factory. Check to make sure your catalytic converter gears aren't the problem.

On a side note, I hope the moderators here don't mind me whoring up this thread with pictures of a jacked up tranny. Cause, I plan on ripping into it now, and posting as much as I can. For educational purposes of course.

So far today I was able to remove both front struts and axles. Boy, that drivers side was a real pain in the arse. Also found out that I need new brake pads. Both of them have cracks in the pads.
How hard is it to change the grease boot on the lower A-arm? I punctured mine today.
Couple of pics as promised...

Whats funny is, while pulling the drivers side shaft out, it kind of seperated at the inside joint. I was looking at the bearings and found one side having a couple missing.



I don't think one of those bearings could have gotten inside. Unless it jumped outside the boot and pulled the dipstick out and jumped in. :P

They were in my way. I don't like it when things(or people) get in my way. It was only 3 nuts anyway.

Yeah, that book I believe the Chilton'* one? only covers the 440T4 (4T60). Look on ebay for a book.
