    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.

    I've used a light duty wire wheel on my bench grinder to clean off shock bodies.

    All the Clearance via road testing checked out.

    Truck is driving straight and no funky camber...wife's car got a flat 2.5 miles from the exit off 95 S. Thankfully AAA tow truck came within 30 minutes, and despite AAA pre-recorded and the customer rep reiterating no passenger transport via tow trucks, our driver was cool and took us to the alignment shop!

    Knocking out tire tread puncture tonight over at the neighbors and knock out her oil change, hopefully it's fixable vs having to go grab a replacement tire.

    @FadedComa says you need an alignment in your truck after having your wife's car towed home.

    No spec sheet...figured if you really wanted one I'll take it to Firestone and ask for them to just pull the current measurements.

    Fuck it, I could make full lock turns forwards and in reverse and not hearing brrrrrrrrrpppppp!

    I could care less, as I immediately recognized the wheel was set more forward in the wheel well.

    As long as it drives fine and the tires don’t start wearing weird, that’s a win in my book.
