Default blasphemy... (SP?)

I am thinking of selling the bonne. but im not sure i can get enought for it. its gonna need at least one new axel, prolly a bearing or soemthing (squeaks at slow speeds(killer during drivethrus)) and i gots a dent in the front passenger corner, not to mention it wont have stock speakers. but it will have the stock headunit.

its a 97 se around 130000 miles. 40th anniversary. i WANT about 6000 for it, if i fix the dent maybe? i dont know...

either way there is this really nice jeep wrangler that i can get real cheap. perfect for the winter...

input anyone?

Get an axel shaft from a slvage yard....and the squeaking....probably front brakes? Wheel bearings don't squeak....They hum real loud and click. DON'T LET GO!!!!!!! ESPECIALLY FOR A JEEP!!!!!!!

6k might be pushing it with that mileage.

If i could get 4 for my car, i'd sell it too. Kinda hard to sell a purple old folks car that is this loud

I don't think jeep wranglers are that good in the winter. I thought it had something to do with the lack of weight and the VERY short wheel base.

6k is pushing it. I imagine you could get 3k for sure.

well all i know is it clicks on left turns (that was the axels on my friends honda), and at slow speeds, not when the brakes are on, it just squeaks in a fasion that sounds like its turning and a part of it is rubbing.

Sounds kinda like a CV joint.

And I have to agree, 6K sounds a little high for a car with Body Damage and known mechanical issues...

whats a CV joint? and how much would it be to fix it?

And yea i know... im just dreaming with that price... well he wants 4500 for the 92 jeep with 9200 miles... but that seems tooo low, maybe odemeter changed? i havent seen it.

but my best friend is a c-tech at a jeep dealership so he can look at it and tell the guy things look worn, and might break soon. maybe get the price lowered. i dunno...

CV Joint = Constant Velocity Joint. It'* the gearing that allows your drive axles to bend. My kid has a bad CV joint on his car, and it was gonna cost about 200 bucks or so to fix (minimum)

And it is a pain if you do the work yourself but it will save you some money.
