Here To Learn - Recently Purchased a 79

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself to the community.  I recently purchase a 79 Bronco and for the most part she’s in great shape.  I don’t know anything though about Broncos or automobiles in generals so I’m a true greenhorn.   There is a lot of interior work I want to fix and a wobble in the rear passenger tire which I can’t seem to pinpoint.  I’ve had the wheels checked, weights checked,  and new tires put on but still have the issues with a minor wobble. 

Here are some pictures

wobble;

A wheel weight may have fell off, or a balance weight on a brake drum  may have come off. 

bent wheel.

a bent axle shaft  will ruin a bearing and seal, may hear a grinding sound.

Thank you for the welcome and the links!  
 

I’ve already gotten the wheel weight checked and the rim.  I’ll look into the balance weight on the break drum and then check the axel.  Right now there is no grinding sound that I can hear.
