Amazing how many people don't torque ball joints correctly or even at all. I've seen a ton of issues this year from it at work. Especially on super duty axles.

I spent enough on these that I don't want to tear the tires up...plus they're a non production tire so I couldn't find a replacement anywhere if I did manage to mess something up.

Installed some Fox 2.0 rear shocks last night that @DozerJK gave me. Also picked up a set of new Rancho shocks for the front, hopefully installing tonight along with cutting out my rear wheel wells before this weekend. Also would like to install my new power steering pump but we'll see what happens.

Also came to the conclusion I need more rear bump...Old shocks were completely destroyed from bottoming out hard multiple times. I'll post up a pic in a little bit of what the bar pins looked like.

Will you be keeping an inventory or ordering through them? Would be nice to have a local supply of spare parts

Right now just ordering. But if I have enough requests for the same thing I might stock it. What do you want?

I have a 44/9 I'll probably want to re-gear at some point. I'll get ahold of you when that happens
