edit: the bolt head is visible from the position i told you to lay in under there, the ratchet end of the extension should end up around the crossmember. and the other end should be up near the top of the bellhousing going in a parallel line with the vehicle, but angled upwards
Thanks man! I could actually see the sensor but not well, gonna try your way tomorrow. Any idea what size bolt we're talking about here?

Finished changing my ball joints only to figure out my wheel bearings are trashed as well. Bummer considering I just did both ball joints and wheel bearings only 3 years ago. Anyone get the timken hubs from rock auto? Any good?

I'm running the Timken hubs on mine, and they seem to be doing fine. One is about a year and a half old with about 21k miles, no issues.

The day I moved to Texas I noticed everyone drove these "******bag" trucks. Extended cab extended bed independent front with 10 inch spacers in the rear on 35" Nitto mud grapplers or some sort of Dick cepeks. I can never figure out what the point of it was cause that wheel base would be horrible on rocks and they weight 8 tons and would just sink in the mud.

So it makes me smirk to hear that
