Dana- it is the rear axle, and today when i went to replace the bearing i noticed that there was no play in the bearing itself, the wobbling is in the brake drum, almost an 1/4 inch to be exact. now my question is, could the previous bad bearing cause the drum to wear unevenly??

i am loving that "Super K". my very first car wa an 86 lebaron coupe,(same body as yours) with a 2.5  those cars are darn near indestructible. but here in the rust belt not much was left by the time i got it. oh yeah. one of my favorite job was delivering pizzas.

well as far as i can tell the car has lived a pretty hard life. it was once towed behind an RV( it has the front brackets still installed and is wired to be towed). also the two passenger doors are not original( the have been repainted from white) the headlights are misaligned and have broken mounting points, there is a dent in the rear bumper support behind the cover, the grille is held on with zip screws and the front bumper is full of stress cracks and the sort. i think i may have overpaid for it. lol but i do love the car and it fits perfect into our family.

ok another question i had. how can i tell if my car is a lemon?? i mean since we bought it (in april) i have done rear brake cylinders, front control arms, front pads, front tierods, spark plugs, and it still needs sway bar links(front), rear shoes, new tires, shifter bushings, and i am questioning if the shocks and struts are bad. and of course this new problem. i mean i LOVE the car, it's small, sporty, efficient, and a MOPAR. but i don't want a money pit ya know.

ok so the plugs were changed with champion copper plugs about 2 months ago. wires have NOT been changed, it does it sporadically, and only when in gear. it hapens cold or hot.
the check engine and battery light has been on since i bought the car.
codes are as follows: P1684, P1193.
they are the same codes as when i bought the car.Foamy_3022012-06-04 09:13:21

i am having an issue with it hesitating at lower RPMs. it's almost as if it's missing.for instance: when leaving a stop, on it's way thru first it will buck slightly but still pick up speed, once the rpm's get higher it goes away, then i shift into second and it goes away. also occasionally i get a small backfire. just a single pop. if any more information is needed just ask away.

i know and it's got a stick too. the old van got about high teens on the highway low teens in the city. the neon gets low thirties on highway and mid to high twentys in the city, as well as being newer, lower miles, easier and cheaper to work on, and funner to drive, i am extremely pleased with the switch
