For sure get the tactical ... and tell me about it ... but at least you can still get some ammo for that... F'n good luck getting ammo these days damn ...

So anyways, when we did the extended brake lines we had to cut a chunk of the old brake line off and put new one on for the rear hard line. Bent slightly up and into the stock retainers, then the braided steel line down to the axle.

Yesterday I got the control arms done. Since I had to move the axle almost 2 inches forward it took us about 3 hours or so to get everything done, plus a trip to advanced to get new bolts for the upper control arms on the axle side.

However when doing them that is when I realized that my passenger side control arm mount is completely ****ing shot. It's bend, ripped, and the steel is rusted and weak. Calling shops today to see how much it will cost to get a new one welded on, as I still haven't bought a welder (ugh).

My steering is alright it just needs aligned. Control arm mounts are cheap, but I need to find a place around here that will weld them on. I don't see how it could cost more than like 85 bucks to rip the old one off and weld the new one on.

Center to center measurements (wheel to wheel) are:

101" Driver Side
98 1/2" Passenger side

That alone tells you how much I'm losing from that ****ed up mount. Oh well, next week that will be fixed and it also means next week I get to align it for the first time in 2 months!

e: That's with both lower control arms set to 17 1/2"
