5hrs time parts labor total $1000 or +/- 10%. The '04s aren't to bad, do it before it's a problem @ (probably beyond the 70,000), or if it becomes Audible! Regards

Thanks so much for your help and prompt response! I'll definitely take this into account. I bought the farm on this issue in a 98 XJ at about 68,000. I also much appreciate any other opinions on the matter. Best
