Pardon my ignorance guys, but in the first post, it was suggested to change the step fluid prior to 60000 miles. Currently, I'm just shy of 63000 miles, and thinking of changing the fluid. Since I've exceeded the 60000 mile mark, should I change the fluid, or let it ride and pray for no failure?

You'll be fine. It was merely a guideline, I just wouldn't wait too long.

Good. I think I'll be swapping it out in the next week or so. The last thing I want to be doing is replacing the tranny. Thanks!

I have a clunk in my front wheel, especially when I make a right turn, is that front endlinks? bushings? control arms?

Probably control arm bushings. Jack up one side of the car and try to move your front wheel, if there's a lot of play, you need to get that taken care of.
