Default The truck is fixed!!

Today the truck was fixed!! thanks so much to Brad (Brinker88) for coming out to do this! I shredded my drivers side CV, needed ball joints and figured, do the hubs as well.

Here is the broken CV


All the old parts taken off


And some half assed pics of the done product!






Again, I cant put it in words on how grateful I am fir Brads helps, it couldnt have been done with out him!!

Afterwards a couple shot of out trucks, And I have to say you need to see his in person, the pics do not do it justice!!

Damn, that CV Joint was fucked, Great news that you got it fixed. Uh, why does your one upper control arm look so different from the other?

That's what I was trying to figure out, but the old one was just like it. Passenger side was easier to take off...2 bolts holding it on.

The ball joints were bought from rockauto.com, all of them are moog problem solvers, the hubs are centrics and the cv's are A-1 cardone from Summit. What is going on with the pics and peoples info? They are all gone!
