Also, drove over a railroad crossing at 50mph and NO death wobble, no vibrations so I guess I got the pinion angles correct, pulls to the left a little bit, but taking it in for an alignment Monday morning to get everything fine tuned, and I'll post the new alignment specs then too.

Front Control Arms Installed

Finished the upper and lower FRONT control arms, still have to do the back, once the back is done, I'm going to go from the 31" tires I have now to 32's... was going to do 33's but I think I'm going to stay with 32's
