Chop, Wheel and Rebuild..

Working on maintenance... I re-torqued the year yoke nut with a healthy dose of red loctite and hope to not deal with that again. I also took off the front driveshaft just to make sure both of them didn't back off on me. The front was fine. Fixed a rear sway bar link that must have gotten into a rock and almost pushed itself out of it's bushing. Inspected the front end for anything out of the ordinary.... I had a new little faint click every now and then on the last wheeling trip that was pissing me off so I hope it becomes obvious or goes away. Also it looks like I somehow bent my R/F control arm enough to warrant a replacement. I don't know when it happened but their is some nice rash where it's bent. Oh well.... **** happens. It almost motivates me to just make my own arms, ditch the radius and weld up the 3 link brackets. Not a good time financially so I'll throw another single arm at it and have my fun until Spring. I WILL be starting to buy Duroflex joints next week though.... I should be able to pick up the 4 I need for the lowers, and I am really pumped to get them installed. My current R/C lower 1.25 joints are in desperate need of a cleaning and re-greasing and I don't want to do it!
I've got a couple more engine related thing to do also, new plugs and an oil change due to a mandatory smog requirement this time with my registration renewal that's due this month. BOO!
