Don't drag me into this!

I'm pretty sure my truck will be in the worst body shape at RRE.

Well boys,its not been a great evening.I got off early which was good.got home to dinner my wife cooked. Dinner was great! Then we all went swimming which was really great.we however had an unexpected guest.....my cell phone in my pocket. It fell out of my pocket and my 20month old was trying to get it off the bottom. I guess its gonna be a few days if any of you fellas text me on a response lol...

I'm ready for rre for sure. But I have a popping in my front that I'm not sure how to cure.
When I change direction on center is when it happens.
The drag link actually turns the tie rod shaft before moving the wheels.
I have a drop pittman arm that perfect for the 3"rsk.I hate to turn the tie rod so the ends fight them selves to keep it from turning.that's about all I can figure.I haven't been able yet to get ahold of my alignment budd yet.

That sucks Aaron. Guess you didn't have the waterproofing app on that one, huh?

How old are your TRE's and the links in your drag link?

Everything was replaced about 10k ago.it all seems nice and tight.I think I'm gonna turn the tre opposite so they work against each other to eliminate the twist.I'll give it just barely some movement so it can't bind them up and see how it does.I just hate it since he doesn't wear tires...I'm leery of messing w success much.

We took clifford for a 3hr cruise today in 90+ heat. Other than the alternator issue vs my elevtric fans it went well. I'm gonna have to do a big alternator one of these days. I pulled the fan fusses when we were on the highway and it took a good while for the volt meter to come back to normal. I'm going t wind up burning my alt up if not careful.it sure seems to be going through the fuel.I sure don't think it was this thirsty before.

That's because now your injectors are actually getting a good supply and not starving!

Remember that big alternator on the engine I have that came out of an ambulance? You need to find one of those. I don't know how many amps this one I have is, or if it is still good, but that thing is HUGE! If you get one, you will need the accessory bracket that it mounts to also.
