Re: Mystery bearing?!?
The sound was definately different than "the Chirp". I would say that I had less than a "two minute warning" before the ref tossed a flag.
My luck had me backing out of a parking spot when this all went down. The sound was a "za-ZA-ZA-ZING-Ga-CLUNK-ka-Clunk-Ka-CLunK!" Plus, that sound was translated thru the pedal.
For what this is costing me when compaired to the number and quality of miles I have driven. I am not going to say a single bad thing about how any of these parts were designed or how they failed. But I will always keep that "Mystery Bearing" as a reminder. "When then chirp turns into a za-Za-Za-Zing!" - Shut'r down and call a tow truck.
I am stoked to be driving a vehichle that has created such a broad and supportive familly. Keep the stoke alive and don't forget to wave at fellow FJ'ers!
