Sorry, theres usually a reason someone trades a high end turbo'd car for a 4x4. Most of the time its because the maintenance is killing them and parts are 2x what they are for a american 4x4. Have fun, I hope you have deep pockets.

Treadwrights = AWESOME

XRF balljoints................ not so much. none of the grease boots really fitted correctly on them. I would stick with MOOG. Yeah its kinda pricey, but they are great stuff.

Good to hear about the treadwrights, I'm on a budget and need new tires, lol. Sucks to hear about XRF, I've read a few threads about people ordering them, but not about actually using them.

The things I want to do to mine, with a 6.5" lift, are treadwright 31" tires (I know it's not as big as I could go, but I want a smaller tire for my DD travels), Currie Tie Rod setup, KOR steering kit (brace+TB+Steering Stabilizer), Rear dropped TB, Dana 44a (Trussed, etc) + HP30 regeared to 4.56, and possibly a Tom Woods SYE kit. So yeah, I've got some money to save... lol. Anyway, if you're familiar with any of those, let me know what you think!
