Soon enough, I found out what it was,...

Add greaseable U-joints on your next driveshaft.

They are much more important than lights or a roof rack or whatever.

Do you the whole shaft or just the u-joints?

On an earlier post.
I have read on discoweb.org about this problem destroying transmissions entirely. - hywy61

In addition to my driveshaft, I heard some stuff going on with my transmission. Hopefully it's still intact.

I believe that the damage being refered to is usually caused by the shaft flying around (if you are at speed) and impacting the things around it.

x2

upgrading the u-joints on a d2 shaft should be a priority long before any shiny offroad mods.

I'd properly flush your ABS block using T4 or a similarly capable diagnostic to actuate the valves.

Thanks Jack for the advice.
Right now it's being repaired at the LR Anaheim Hills dealership. Is that something I can request them to do?

yes.



If you didnt' damage your transmission or t-case, then replacing a driveshaft hardly merits a trip to the dealership.

nothing against getting your truck worked on at a dealer, but you could probably stand the lesson in d-shaft removal and install.

In fact, you'd probably benefit from building up a new D2 shaft with greasable joints yourself.

Driveline familiarity is a pretty important part of being trail ready.

At a minimum you need to know how to take a driveshaft on and off and replace u-joints.

Service advisor said there was no collateral damage to either the transmission or t-case. So that's good news. Just have to iron out the coolant leak (hoses) and brakes. I definitely need to get on the ball and learn more about the mechanics of my Rover.

Totally agree with you, Jack. Once I get it back I'll upgrade to the greaseable u-joints. And no more inferior OEM parts for me, the generic OEM F&R brake pads I put in performed like shit. John was so right. I fucked up.
