    It’s been a productive day. Not sure what I’m going to do for the front grab handles (paint doesn’t seem to want to dry) and the seat belts. But the black is coming along nicely! Just have to order some seat covers for the Subaru seats. Starting the door panels tomorrow

    Made some progress today. Also got the AC clutch out, of course I ordered the wrong bearing so it’ll be ordered tomorrow. But yeah that bearing is toast

    There are occasions where I need to place things in the bed but I’m worried about stuff flying out. I bought a tailgate net on Amazon using my points- cost me $6.

    Idk man. I can't see how it would impede the range of motion enough to do that. Hell I know it can't actually because the steering stops gouge the crap out of the LCAs so really they extend MORE than an OEM LCA because there are no steering stops on the LCAs.

    You may be right, but it's just a hypothesis. I have no numbers to back it up so who knows. I'll know forsure when I can compare it against another truck and then I'll take it all back lol.
    Mine hit on the arm too, I just ground down the steering stop on the LBJ so it wouldn't anymore

    Alright a little lost on this noise im hearing now, sounds exactly like a wheel bearing going out, need to check the rears today
    But is it possible for a front wheel bearing to be going out if theres absolutely zero play with the truck jacked up, and wheels spin like a top
