Maybe have it re balanced or re tubed if the candy cane or gouges are deep. Anytime there is any kind of dent or indent it really weakens the metal and integrity of the D.line. Sorry your having that problem. Welcome to rockcrawling. I thought you did great by the way. I kinda lost track of you after I broke. Had my nose in my axle. Sucks!
Thanks man! What I noticed quickly was how different the terrain was from what I was used to in Moab. And how you need to be more technically proficient and precise with your driving. I'm excited because this is a 'new' challenge to me.
I did have to reset the preload on my right wheel bearing, then added lube to the d-line, then balanced the tires... but the vibration is more or less still there. Don't think it's a U-joint, and I've decided to drop it off with Marty at Martin's Auto to see what he thinks. He's great with my rig, and my rig likes him too. Hopefully it isn't any big deal.
