Definitely. Not complaining just thought it was weird it was bad too. I think Napa has a replacement for $75. Autozone use to sell a Timken for $112 a piece.

I may go to Napa on this one.

Went to car show in Charlotte this weekend and picked up a few things for dirt cheap. Led tail lights, new front headlights that use new style bulbs, and relay for led tailights. Also picked up calipers, dial indicator, and magnetic base for cheap.

Nice.

Hey, I have my in-lb torque wrench if you want me to bring it down in a couple weeks. I used it to measure my pinion bearing preload.

Stuffs starting to come in, just need to find time to work on it. These are ruffstuff specialties 3/4" Heim steer kit. Very beefy! Shouldn't bend like my stock did. Going to do a high steer setup and flip the tie rod to the top.

Very nice. I may go to heims based on your experience.

Lights look great by the way.

Thanks. I don't really want to say on how much cause its a lot. But I've gotten deals here and there and saved me a bunch. I've also done a lot of stuff myself, which saves on paying someone else to do it. It's a lot more than I'd like to say though, but every trip I take it is worth it.

New led tail lights, picked them up at a car show in Charlotte for $20 a pair. Relay for $5. Much brighter.
