Crazy

That's something I didn't think about! Yes I did bottom it out against the U joint, I'll check it out after work today. I really hope that's it, it's a real PIA to remove and replace. I have a call...

leaf springs

Besides the issues I'm having with the power steering the ride with the stock straight axel and leaf springs is really nice. My truck rides nicer than my '05 Chev 4x4. I should add that every square...
