Depressing

Well I brought my truck in for a rear brake job last week, and asked the mechanic to check out my front end. Started making some noise on bumps, and not tracking like I thought it should. Well the bad news.......needs new upper, and lower balls, and torsion bars $953 smacks!

Well, its doesnt have torsion bars but the sway bar end links may be bad. But thats pretty typical.

Yeah I guess its just one of those things you have to live with owning these trucks. I have to put my new toy I want to buy on hold for a bit now! Always happens at the worst times
