I pulled my steering, ground it down to the metal, repacked the ball joints, repainted, washed ball joint sleeves in the sink, relubed (all six points up front) and installed a Rancho RS5000 steering stabilizer.

In this picture the links are parallel because I have one of the tires on a foot or two of dirt. (I was testing the play/flex and it's hard to see from this perspective.)

Need a second opion, I have my engine and trans out right now. I replaced the master clutch cylinder a while ago only to find that the internal slave cylinder was now leaking. My first thought was to replace the clutch with a heavy duty clutch while the trans and engine where out, however, finances are tight and since my clutch wasn't a problem other than the leak I'm reluctent to do so now. Secondly i'm thinking about changing the tranny to a Ax 15 ( currently have a BA 10 Peugot) when it dies. So, if I replace the clutch now isn't that wasted funds since the new tranny will require a new clutch?

Another productive weekend...

NUTTER'd the beast. So cool! Big benefits!

Found my front axles were locked again... Time for a POSI-Loc

Found two other vac lines loose

Did a garage alignment. Almost fixed my wandering issue by toeing in a little more. Think I have more toeing to do...
