    So the thread count thing worked .. kinda lol. Itll get me till tomorrow. I noticed on the driver side that I could flex the LCA on the drivers side and the bushings allowed the arm to slightly move.. couldn't do it on the passenger.

    Do you guys think they'll still align it?


    I also noticed that these balljoints "whistle" I don't know how else to describe the noise. It starts at 30mph and sounds like a vibrating at very high speeds in the wind.


    The cotter pin in the kit was really loose in the hole, could that be it? I didn't have anything larger on hand

    Cleaned the Z up this morning; still need to replace the half shafts, rear sway bar end links, and get the rear end rebuilt.

    I've done a mod or two
    I feel like I walked in on the twilight zone. $200 fox shocks, cheese grade ball joints, people with extremely poor money management habits instructing others on use of credit...


    No wait, it's the LT thread we good :p

    I ran Chinese LBJs for two years. Literally wheeled up a running waterfall and through huge logs and stones. Was it a bad idea, yes, did it work, yes, did I check them once a week for play, absolutely

    The coilovers are oriented differently though, he's right. Resi fronts would have the hoses in the wrong areas.
