you sir deserve a retard badge. What wears out in the ifs on a stock or mildly lifted truck?
Ball joints, tie rod ends, and?
What wears out on EVERY other one ton truck out there? BALL JOINTS, TIE ROD ENDS......
Oh, and what suspension is underneath nearly every 2wd truck 1/2, 3/4, and 1 ton?
INDEPENDANT FRONT SUSPENSION.
Sure, some of the idler arms and things may wear out, but again, not much differently than a straight axle.
