Re: Looking for part info -

Yeah, the shop is called Naylor's Auto Repair. they are down off Chinden. I stumbled across them when I needed work done on my drift boat trailer and found out that one of the mechanics was the emergency road mechanic for Uhaul for the entire pacific northwest for a number of years.

He impressed me as someone that has seen it all. I subsequently took the van there for another issue (I can't remember what all) and have been really impressed.

Their shop doesn't look like much but they impressed me as trustworthy.

The one thing I don't know is whether they could work on things such as Atlas Transfer case or Dynatrak parts but I would consider it.

Hope that helps.

Herb

Herb, thanks for the link. Not sure why it didn't come up when I searched but I suspect it had to do with the fact that the search term "thingy" results is a plethora of options around here.

Thanks again and very informative.

Peter (SMB) indicates that Dynatrac should have the replacement boots. I may end up just replacing the ends and ball joints while I'm at it. Will report back what I find out from Dynatrac.

Re: Looking for part info -

I ended up just ordering new tie-rod ends (which includes new grease/dust boots) from Dynatrac. I figured if I'm going to have it apart, might as well swap them out since they are aging.

Will keep the take offs as an emergency spare.

Thanks again to all for their help.

Of course there is the SMB 4WD Parts Reference Thread sticky that has lots of info as well. It's always on top of the page so you don't have to search for it.

New DynaTrac tie-rod ends installed and looking good. I kept the old ones (which it appears were not badly worn after all). If someone is in a pinch (either time wise or financially) and need a set, I can ship them easily and cheaply just say the word.

Came off a 2006 SMB 4x4 (not Quigley) Diesel.

Shenrie, I ended up using Lithia Ford (who has an awesome diesel tech w 30 yrs experience) because I needed to do a coolant and trans flush. I've had good luck with them also from past experience.
