    Noise after 4.88 Nitro Regear

    oh I should say to that that they rebuilt the knuckles as well ... so I assume theres grease where it needs to be ... This was done at a very reputable Land cruiser shop... that alot of folks here know , so I'll just leave it at that ... no need calling anyone out if they can make it right !
