yeah, it turned over so fast when I first started it kinda startled me

Personally, I hope you keep it. Just sayin
yeah i know I wont get anything back. im doing most of it because even if I do sell it wont be for a least a few weeks and the steering NEEDS to worked on and the rear brake pads are shot. Also, if im going to sell it, i want to hand it over in good condition. I guess thats just how i am.....plus i like working on it so itll give me something to do with the rest of my vacation once I get back from Florida

haha....i cant believe I got that from you in February and still havnt installed it my steering is getting pretty loose though so its 100% going on next week. Gotta rent a ball joint tool though. Might as well do those while the knuckles are off. also gotta find a right angle drill so I can drill out the trac bar mount

They are great so far. Installed just like any other ball joint. They are definatly made a little better than your standard joint with not much more cost over moogs
