So I got an alignment done today, found out my tie-rod is bad, gotta replace that.

and I need that rear track bar bracket badly. Considering my rear axle is shifted over, my rear UCA's and LCA's are squeaking so bad rubbing up against the bushings. I'll be buying that from you REAL soon greengc!

Within the next few weeks, I'm going to be doing:
Tie Rod
All 4 rotors/pads
Front CV to U joint conversion
Rear Track Bar Bracket
Driver Door Hinge Pins
Painting Rockers
Fixing Catalytic Convertor

(If anyone has an extra cat from a v8 5.2, I'd love to buy it from you. I have the worst baffle and it's ruining the quality of my truck).

Yes, it snows in Texas.
