    1) Has anyone had to replace the encoder motor on the 4wheel drive system? Mine mysteriously went out while at the dealership getting a new engine dropped in. Did yours just all of a sudden not work? How much did you pay for the new one?

    2) My alignment is off. I have had the front brakes completely replaced, pads, rotors, even the hoses, and that doesn't seem to be the cause. One dealership wanted $500 just to investigate the problem. Can you guess what I told him to do with his business card? Any ideas why the local tire shop can't dial her in?

    check your ball joints, tire camber/caster and wheel bearings. maybe replace all the bushings up front as well they are probably worn so things may be a little loose. as for the encoder motor hopefully someone can help ya out cuz i dont really know anything about that
