uggggghhhhh!!!!! Knew it was coming...

Well, got my tax return in and the plan was to get the front end on my baby freshened up. Well after dropping it off for an alignment, my gut feeling was proven right. Looks like I'll be getting new upper and lower ball joints, new tie rod ends, and pittman arm inner and outer replaced....

I have also been told that my steering box is probably no bueno but we won't know how bad till we get the rest of the front end tightened up.

Bye bye $1500

What ball joints are they putting on? Watch out, I just had all the same done on my truck and now I am having the sticking ball joint problem and driving my truck is a ton more work..... Its gotten a little better after 900 miles, but still a chore to drive... After talking to some people, and my experience, put on ford factory ball joints........

new ball joints now it feels weird

That sucks, but at least it will drive nice and not eat tires.
