godamit shit ass.....my cars making a grinding noise....its the main bearing for the crankshaft, my coolant is leaking like a fucking faucet, my head lights not working, my CAT is giving off fucked up smells(Speedy where the fuck are my parts???QWDASEWQESADWQ) my exhaust sounds like a lawnmower.
it isnt your crank, i believe you mean Driveshaft(same thing blah), but i replaced the Center Bearing, it is a bitch to fix, especially if you dont get a new driveshaft, you have to balance everything yourself.
took us a good weekend or so to do it, cuz you gotta take the entire exhaust system down, then all the heatshields, and its a pain, and its hard as hell to torque the bolts that go into the guibo, and its A BITCH to tighten the nuts to the headers.
sucks man, might wanna think about another car, unless you are willing to put the time into it.
