unloaded down to VA friday night was painful.  violent shaking from 50-62MPH.  has had some goofy tire wear 40-60K miles and i had been planning to run the steers out another 10K before fixing front end looseness.  rid home loaded much better but after inspection today the front steers are whooped.  confirmed upper ball joint play both sides onlything loose.


changed upper balljoints in about 10 minutes a side.  i think i spent more time looking for something to use as a 60mm socket and a 33m wrench than actually doing it.  had to cut down a 1 3/16 socket to fit but was easy after that.  steers pulled and loaded in ZJ to drop at Lewis tomorrow morning to mount new rubber. 

Front end lubed
637XX miles
front brakes like still 80%

If I can get the dog to get out of it, pit stops will be quicker and smoother.

New slave installed and gravity bled. Feels good around the lot.

Exhaust hanger installed. Trans mount and radius arm crossmembers both ridiculously tweaked and replaced by dom. Trans was rotting out. Radius arm too tweaked to get the trans over it. Hopefully there’s enough engagement on the radius arms to last. Otherwise the brackets are replaceable.
