yea i know the feeling..... i was quoted a little more...... all i did was get under her and give each nut a little tork..... just a little, now. it did work.

i guess they have to remove alot stuff under there, as you will see.

Thanks, I tried that already, Slowed it down a little but didn't stop it. With the 130k on it I'm almost considering doing a crate motor.
