Things have been really busy lately at work and at home and I haven't had much time in the shop or time to post anything.
I spent almost a full weekend working my wife's trailblazer, it had been making a noise in the front end. So the intial plan was to replace the wheel bearings. The bearing didn't sound bad, and the noise sounded like it was coming from the upper CV joint on the drivers side. Replacement drive axles with new CV joints are available so I decided to replace it instead of trying to fix the CV joint. To replace the drive axle the complete suspension has to be disassembled. I took it more apart than I had ever had the front end of any vehicle.
I've also done a little work in the garden. Last week a friend came over with a 6' tiller and tilled the garden and the sweet corn patch. Before he came and tilled I used my garden tractor and a small dics to break it up some. The garden had been plowed under last fall.
