Well the ball joint saga continues....
I got the alignment done a couple days ago and I decided to just get the lifetime alignment from Firestone since I'll probably do other front end work at some point. They say they're done so I look over the sheet and the left side is all in the green and the only one in the red for the right side is caster. It started at 4.2 and they got it to 4.1 (should be between 0.5 and 3.1). Of course they want me to buy some other part which I believe the truck already has but what ever, I'll check it out and if it does I'll go to a different one. Also the cross camber and caster are in the red.
I get in the truck and as I'm turning it's making a terrible popping noise and a couple times it locked the steering wheel. I didn't get more than 20 feet so I'm crawling under the truck hoping it wasn't something I did. They come out asking what's wrong and I tell them, he has me turn the wheel while he looks and he says the ball joints are worn and need to be replaced. Sorry guy, I literally just did all 4 and that's why I'm here. I crawl under there to find that part that attaches to the tierod turned around and it's hitting a bolt. I remember I used it to adjust the steering wheel in my old 6.7. They just twist it back around and send me on my way. Out of curiosity, wouldn't that mess with the alignment? Oh well, I guess I'll have to schedule another alignment when I get back from Utah.
