hey everyone im ne where and am having some issues with my 07 sxt 2.0
i did the balljoints in the front, front pads and rotors and my front right wheel bearing had alot of play...
well after pressing 4 different timkin bearings into my knuckel and using 3 different hubs, i was still having 12-6 play even after torqueing the axlenut and all other components to spec.
i was done fighting and opted for a whole knuckle bearing and hub all pre assembled from dodge for 304$$$$ installed and torques to spec..
still same issue!!! 12-6 play and not inspection worthy.
i can see the rotor moving along when i shake her down and can see the stub shaft moving as well. all is super tight until i take it off the jack and take it for a test drive... then after rejacking it up it has play. tried retorqueing with no luck. friend suggested a new cv shaft, and even after changing that i still had no luck.
im about to pull my hair out and need some suggestions on this one. PLEASE HELP ME!

Wish I could help you, man, but I have no experience with front end problems like that. You might try asking that question on allpar.com.
