The original had 183K on it and there was movement in the pulley shaft. Better to change it out than take a chance of it spilling it's guts or seizing. The after market rebuilt one was louder that the one it replaced. The one from the dealer is very quiet. I can hear myself think now.

I washed it and had a guy come out to re-seal the windshield. Turns out whoever put it in didn't do it properly, and now I need a new windshield and seal if I want it done right. Only costs $40 more that re-sealing and fixing the rock "star", and as bad as it was f-ed up, there was no guarantee that it would be re-sealable.

I cleaned my K&N air filter, did the air box mod and cleaned interior of my truck as I waited for the filter to dry after spraying the dirt and detergent off. I'd post pics but I didn't take any while I was doing it and it's too dark to get them now. Plus, I'm going to bed right now anyway.

Yeah, one ball joint goes, the others aren't too far behind. I had to do the same recently on my SUV. :-/
