WOW! got her done, Pat has pictures to load later, job was super easy and only took about an hour of actual work time. The knuckle just fell out once the upper control arm was removed. This thing was bad!

here are the pics, this was the worst ball joint ive ever seen, thing came out in 2 pieces. I would rather do ball joints all day on these IFS trucks than the TTB though, things went pretty smooth today.

(sorry for the shaky blurry pics, im a bit hungover today. lol)









new parts in, ready for the brakes!


our supervisor spent most of the time "driving" the truck for us. lol


a couple randoms.



the day was a success, glad we got to take care of that. we even got to take a break and help my neighbor fix his dodge!
