Re: '95 Grinding in front-end & Stalling when shifting...?
I had a grind in my front end (94 XLT). It ended up being the control
arm bushings at the rear brackets. I happened to be on a trip away from
any type of professional service when I got totally tired of the noise.
I stuffed a bunch of grease into the rubber bushings (shot anyway), and
took a length of half inch nylon anchor rope and kept wrapping it and
pulling it tight (with a visegrip until it took no more), into the gap
between the bushing in front of the bracket and the bracket itself. I
figured this would stop the annoying grind until I got home. Not only
did the noise stop, but so did the odd shimmy at highway speeds that
had plagued me for a few years. After I got home, I have procrastinated
doing a real fix for about 8 months so far because my fix seems to have
lasted longer than anticipated. Sorry, can't help you with the stall -
not enough information.
