How much clearance do you have between the wheel and the caliper? Looks close haha.

Changed the Drivers side CV today, drivers side lower ball joint, and did an oil change.

I noticed some vibration between 60-70mph, rather annoying. Tires are set to 40 psi, gonna check the balancing on them next.

Following up;
I purchased a Harbor Freight a Static Portable Wheel Balancer to look into my balancing suspicion. Didn't even know these things existed! Pretty neat. Took me a few try's to get the balancing on the wheels as close to perfect as possible.

After a couple hours over a weekend, I can say the balancing is on point. No more vibrations from 60-70 at all.

Whoa, I had no idea about these. I'm always picky about what I'll trust to be a precision tool when buying from HF, I'm glad this was a good buy!

So you had some wheel weights and kept sticking them in different places until you got a good reading?

Thank you Sil2DrV6! Yes I have. One of the many cosmetic things I'd like to do.

You are correct Red! Its a bit of a process. You have to be patient and try over and over until the bubble lines up. I'll be doing this again this weekend when I move them the rears to the front. Time to rotate.

As I mentioned on another thread I resolved the popping noises by replacing the front sway bar end links.

Always feels good to get rid of rattles/creaks/pops/squeaks. What kind of endlinks are those?
