Not at all. I was surprised. I just took the castle nut off it, put the new one on it that came with the new SS and beat on it a little til i popped it out, took all of 3 minutes to get it out. New one went on with ease. I'll take some pics of it later and post them on my thread. It was too dark to do it last night.

Nice. I am changing my tie rod ends and going to be taking that off as well. Kinda sucks that I am putting the old one back on. Putting some antiseize on it for sure.

Got my Infinity Kappa speakers (6 3/4") and my Harbor Freight off road lights. Working on retrofitting my 55w 3000k HID's into them.

I had it on a lift with a buddy turning the wheels and the drag link and passenger side outer TRE were both moving around doing the hula dance. I can feel it on the road more with the larger tires. There is slop in the steering for sure. I got the Moog outer from www.rockauto.com and the drag link from Oreilly's which I was surprised to find that it was Moog also.

It's usually the track bar but who knows. The death wobble goblin can hide in many places.
