Didn't know they took some pressure, what do they look like from the side. I was under the idea that the bushing was like twice the diameter of the shackle bolt to give it that kind of articulation and it just kind of bounced around in there.
Here you can see the spherical bearing

Truck is back to DD status since the car decided to take a massive dump on me!!! Sounds like a bent rod, but it's not driveable at all..

hey silas

did you have to cut off your frame horns to get the bumper to fit? Or does the 98-00 horns go through the opening in the mount bar?

Looking into a lopro rock defense; don't see any 98-00's running it or any info about it

Nope... I had to cut off the mini crossmember where the skid bolts up to, but I simply unbolted the frame horns and it fit over the frame ends jut fine. Not a bad install at all.

Nice, man. That'll look sweet!!!!

No, it's a 3s-fe...... 2.0l. Thought about attempting a swap like you did on your car, but my celica is fwd....... not sure it'd be worth doing a rwd conversion.

Ah bummer, For some reason I thought those were RWD. Yeah converting to RWD would involve A LOT of custom fab, not worth it at all. I wonder how hard it is to just throw a new rod in that thing and keep going? Maybe get another few years out of it.

Maybe.........I'm going to look into it, but I think I'm going to end up selling it. (if I think I can do it, replace the rod, then sell it.) Not in love with the whole FWD thang..
