|deadbodyman||Speaking of ball joints I just ordered 4 of them for my Nissan shop truck along with control arm bushings.....The other day I brought the truck to my alignment guy and found the bolts holding the left upper control arm were backed out about half way ,that explains why I could feel movement when I hit the brakes ,it also pulled left which was strange because I just replaced the pads and rotors. good thing I went in when I did ....|

What did I work on today? A Hyundia Sonata.......nuff said.
|Yesterday 08:47 PM|
today i got both sides torn apart, ball-joints out, and a-arms cleaned up.
now i need to decide if i want to have the a-arms powder coated or just hit them with a rattle can.
i am thinking rattle can, because i have a lot more money to spend on this thing before its race ready for the wife
