    Eh, see my Build Thread sig link. Too many mods to list.
    So after having had my lift for a few weeks, I decided to stuck my head underneath and take a look at things.

    I've seen some threads on TW (and have a hunch I'll be looking at more) regarding CV angles after lifting, and problems.

    I didn't think these looked too bad compared to some I've seen here:

    Now, I'm still learning about this whole truck thing; parts, mods, mechanics, etc. That being said, I noticed this and am pretty sure I've got a problem that needs addressed...and no clue if I can do it, or what even needs to be done. Yet. I'm limited on skills and tools at this point.

    Back to more thread researching it appears.

    Just replaced the boots. My guy is a mechanic at a Toyota dealership and would have told me if there were any issues. He went through the entire truck when I first got it and said it was really well maintained. The previous owner never did any offroading, it was his daily driver to work.

    Here's an after pic:

    Thanks :)

    But now the damn overspray in that picture from when I painted the calipers is bugging me.

    It doesn't matter...it doesn't matter...it's on the backside and can't really be seen...it doesn't matter...
