Cheap, expensive parts?
I have a 97 CC 4x4 long bed.
In the last year I have done everything under the truck, brakes, bearings, u joints, seals, gaskets, basically everything related to steering and suspension(new shocks are after this) water pump, oil cooler 3rd new napa starter, misc. wiring, rear tank rusted (AZ truck pretty much spotless) on ribs it sits on skid pans, fuel pick up screen broken off in tank, etc.
Trying to finish up my front end and took it to get aligned today after replacing all the tie rods, adjusters, bars, etc and the Spicer ball joints I just installed in January have some slight play already on the drivers side, plus I was told to put adjustable camber bushings in as well.
There are numerous front axle parts that are obsolete now, I try to find oem or the best parts I can, it's a one ton 4x4 that tows a lot.
First ever vehicle that had a rusted tank, the spicer ball joints irritates me, my local napa sends me birthday cards now. Lol
Is there no advantage to buying better parts, or do I just have really bad luck?
